A Tip for When You Meet an Author

If you read a book you like, and then invite the author for coffee, here’s a tip: Bring a couple of copies to be signed, and then make sure that your nails coordinate with the cover of the book.

Alternatively, if you’re an author, choose a book cover that complements your readers’ unconventional style.

I live for the times I hear from readers. Meeting them is a hundred times better.

Thanks for a fun coffee date, Lady Adelaide. I really do love your nails.

I’ll (kind of ) Be in Maine

This Thursday – Saturday, March 16-18, my books will be for sale at the HOME Convention 2017 in Rockport, Maine.

Unfortunately, I won’t be there with them. It’s a long way from Virginia to Maine, and hard for a homeschooling mom to get away.

My husband, Darren Jones of HSLDA, will be speaking at the conference. He’s the point-of-contact for my book table, because he’s fantastic like that. I’ll be available via email, Messenger, and possibly Skype, although we’re still fiddling with those details.

So you can still drop by and chat with me through the wonder of technology, plus get some candy and buy a book or two.

E-books come with a special bonus. I’ll talk more about that in the near future.

I’d love to “see” you in Maine!
