THE FRIDAY ROUND-UP


 
This is quite a week for Oak Tree!

We're very excited to be part of this weekend's San Gabriel Valley Literary Festival in West Covina, California. One of our own, JOHN BRANTINGHAM, has worked years to make this a reality and will be launching his novel “Mann of War” at the event. Also launching her mystery, “Murder's Last Resort” is MARTA CHAUSEE. Oak Tree will have a table at the festival, manned by authors MARJA MCGRAW, MARILYN MEREDITH, MORGAN ST. JAMES and SUNNY FRAZIER. The authors will be reading from their work on Sunday afternoon and evening. For more information, go to the Face Book site: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-San-Gabriel-Valley-Literary-Festival/218795041497377?fref=ts     

Mysterious Galaxy, San Diego's independent bookstore, hosted the launch party for TERRY AMBROSE'S "License to Lie" on Friday. The event came on the heels of the book receiving its fifth 5-star review on Amazon giving it an average rating of 4.8.


We're very proud of our cover art, and two OTP books have earned awards: WILLIAM DOONAN'S “American Caliphate” and MARVA DALE'S “Death of a Flapper.” 




The big deal over at the Taylorville, Illinois, library was CAROL ALEXANDER'S children's book, “The Big Squeal.” The author received local support just in time for Abe Lincoln's B-day.

Glad to see that Oak Tree will be well represented at the San Gabriel Valley Literary Festival. Sorry I can't be there, but I'm headed to the Puerto Vallarta Writers' Conference -- and Oak Tree will be well represented there also. Seems like Oak Tree is getting around, and getting noticed.

See you at the San Gabriel Literary Festival. I'll be reading from WHO'S GOT THE MONEY? on Sunday at 6:30.

If anyone is registered for the Genre-LA (Thrillers, Mysteries and Sci Fi) conference this weekend at Los Angeles Valley College in Van Nuys,CA I'll be going back and forth between the Festival and the conference. Walk up reservations still available. I'm presenting Crafting Twists and Dropping Clues on Saturday at 3:15 and Pumping Up Your Personality as an Author on Monday at 10:00.

Hi Sunny,
I can just squeeze this in under the wire, before you pass the 200 follower mark. I have nominated the OTP blog for the Liebster Blog Award, an award for new blogs with fewer than 200 followers. Please check it out here:
