Hello there, Beastie fans! Just a quick note to keep you guys posted on some local upcoming events!
What will I be doing between May and October, you ask?! Putting my nose to the grindstone to get the manuscript for Book 2 done and the gears rolling to finally get it published. My goal is to have it done and ready for Japan Fest in October. Keep your fingers crossed for me! (The gods know it’s been a long road!)
May 12, 2018 – Worldbuilding Without Harm (Panel Discussion). I’ll be at Tubby & Coo’s Mid-City Book Shop for Independent Bookstore Day on May 12th from 1 PM to 2 PM for a panel discussion on Worldbuilding Without Harm! How do authors go about building their fictional worlds without causing harm to real-life groups of people? This is a topic I had to seriously consider when I decided to write about Japan and their traditions. Come join us to discuss!
If you’d like to know more about the full day Event, which includes other panels with some amazing local NOLA authors, please visit Tubby & Coo’s Event Page here.
- Date & Time: Saturday, May 12, 2018, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM
- Location: Tubby & Coo’s Mid-City Book Shop, 631 N. Carrollton Ave, NOLA
October 6, 2018 – Japan Fest 2018 (NOLA). I’ll be at Japan Fest again this year, signing and slinging books (and tea), and teaming up again with the Japan Society of New Orleans for another kitsuke (kimono dressing) demonstration. If you’ve never been to our local Japan Fest, I highly recommend it. Come join us to celebrate and learn about Japanese culture! Stay tuned on this page, and on my social media, for more specific information as the festival gets closer.
- Date & Time: Saturday, October 6, 2018, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
