Tom Coffey's newest book, Bright Morning Star, was recently published by OTP on the 20th of this month! To kick this off, he will be having an event in early May. On Monday, May 4, Tom will be reading from the book at 2A, a literary bar in New York City's East Village. The reading is at 7:30 pm, and if anybody stumbles into the place, they should be aware that the readings are on the second floor.


Ann K. Howley, author of Confessions of a Do-Gooder Gone Bad, will be one of the featured speakers at an upcoming event. She will be speaking at the "Live Well: A Conference for Women Nurturing Body, Mind and Spirit" event on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Christ United Methodist Church in Bethel Park, PA.
She hopes to see many people there!

Beryl Reichenberg, OTP children’s picture book author, will be at the Santa Maria Discovery Museum on Saturday April 25 at 3 PM to help children make a Spring Flower Book and talk about butterflies and wildflowers. She also will be selling and signing her books. Children under the age of 7 may need help with an adult. Sounds like the kids in Santa Maria will have a blast!


Douglas Seaver, author of The Fourth Rule, had this to say about his recent event!
"Palm Beach Peril was great—over 300 people attended. Standing room only! Here’s a pic of Lisa Scottoline with yours truly. Lisa was funny and high energy, Oline Cogdill, the moderator, was thoughtful and articulate, and Stacy Alesi of the Delray Beach Library ran a smooth, hassle free event."

Thonie Hevron, author of By Force or Fear and Intent to Hold appeared on Barbara M. Hodges' blogtalkradio podcast-Red River Radio's No Limits on April 21. Click on the link to listen to the interview. Thonie's is in the last 30 minutes.


Richard Marranca, author of Dragon Sutra, was reelected in March for position of Trustee of NJ College English Association. His poem about traveling in Asia was just accepted by Rockhurst Review. And he's working on another novel and finishing up a collection of stories.

Way to go on the election and your poem, Richard!



This week's Blast From The Past is F. M. Meredith's, An Axe To Grind.
Check out the book's description below!:
"Set in a small So CA beach town, an imaginative stalker's decapitation sends Detectives Milligan and Marshall on an investigation of the stalker's family, his victim and her family. When Doug strikes out on his own to corner the murderer and no one knows where he went, Stacey frantically tries to find him. She almost comes to a dead end, when his beloved MG is found in the lagoon on the Santa Barbara college campus."

Today I blogged about British actress Pauline Collins (no relation). Find out why I am so impressed with her work.

Your blog is useful. When I was a student, it never crossed my mind, that I can let someone deal with my academic needs. 1writing service is really helpful.
