2014 Author Showcase - Columbia, SC

I have finally finished putting labels and eyes on all the bookworms I've made up in the last few weeks (spent a little over an hour and a half putting eyes on 17 bookworms and labels on those plus the other 80 sitting here waiting to be labeled).  I'm ready for tomorrow.  I have 6 small library book tote bags and 3 larger sized ones available plus 10 books.  Have borrowed my friend's tablet to use my Square card reader (and did get it working last night, just hope it continues to work tomorrow so I can accept credit cards).  I've printed up table signs on my price list and the square signage.  I have books and bookworms and everything boxed and ready to go. 

If you happen to be in the Columbia, SC, or anywhere that is remotely close to Columbia tomorrow between 11 AM and 1 PM, come visit us.  For a list of authors who will be there, please check out the posting.  I'm looking forward to seeing some friends I haven't seen in a while including Ann Einstein, author of the Sean Gray, Jr FBI series; Karen Petit, author of the Ivy League series; Mary Lee, author of children's books and nonfiction.  I'm also going to see folks from the local Sisters in Crime group, although I just saw most of them last month at our meeting.  The authors from the SinC group include Polly Iyer, author of thriller/suspense novels; Cindy Blackburn, author of humorous cozy mysteries; Judy Buch, inspirational author who is working on a cozy mystery with a ventriloquist as the protagonist; Danielle Dahl, memoir author; and Roger Meadows, thriller/suspense/mystery writer (unfortunately he doesn't have a webpage).  Another author who will be there is Paula Gail Benson, short story writer and author of several genres who is a member of Sisters in Crime but actually lives in Columbia so isn't really a member of our local group but she has been the guest speaker for our group as well as attended a meeting or two.  Paula and I go back a ways. 

Those are just a few of the authors who will be attending the event tomorrow.  Hope to see you all there - E :)
