Words and wheels weekend in Wisconsin

Next Saturday, March 19th, I will be in La Crosse for a reading and my first roller derby bout (watching, not playing).

If you’re around La Crosse, Wisconsin, come to my reading at Pearl Street Books in La Crosse. We’ll be joined by the cover artist,  for my novel, The Silence of Trees: Madeline Carol Matz! There will be snacks (courtesy of the Co-op and the lovely Maura Henn), as well as free tarot readings by Kirsta Skaff, Sanshin music, and maybe a few surprises. We’ll see. 😉

After the reading, we’ll see where the Wisconsin winds carry us. There may be more revelry.

On Sunday, March 20, we will be watching Maura and the feisty ladies of Mississippi Valley Mayhem as they introduce the two Intra-league teams of MVM!  I’m a derby virgin, and very excited to watch these ladies in action!

More information is on their site.

Hope that some of you can make it. If you’re on facebook, there’s an event page..

Tonight I have my first official book club visit. The members just finished The Silence of Trees and will be discussing it. I’ll be sure to post pictures. If you have a bookclub and would like me to come and talk about TSOT, send me a note.

Many more exciting things in the works: Philadelphia in April, Madison in May! More to come.

Thank you to everyone who has been buying The Silence of Trees and leaving reviews on various sites: amazon, goodreads, facebook, etc. I’m so grateful for your thoughtful comments and help in spreading the word!

Because of the fantastic response to The Silence of Trees for $.99 on kindle, the sale has been extended (buy here)! Spread the word, you can read kindle books on your phones and laptops if you don’t have a kindle. It’s very exciting!
