Thank You, Indy Reads Books!
Last night I made the trip up I-65 to Indianapolis for a reading and signing event at Indy Reads Books (to celebrate the official release of my short story collection The Mirrors). Indy Reads is a great bookstore for lots of reasons. There’s a small stage and seating area for readings. Also, the staff are quite helpful and welcoming. Even better, Indy Reads Books is an independent bookstore–-a branch of the Indianapolis 501(c)(3) non-profit literacy organization Indy Reads. The profits from Indy Reads Books go directly toward improving literacy in the community through the free tutoring services of Indy Reads.
The bookstore staff were pleased with the turnout and so was I. While several of my old Indianapolis friends from the Speculative Fiction Guild and Indiana Horror Writers were there, we also had a couple of total strangers show up (at least one of whom left with books in hand). Oh, and since I love giving out goodies around Halloween, I gave everyone at the event A WHOLE BAG OF CANDY! (Ask those who attended, if you want more details.)
If you live in the Indianapolis area and didn’t get a chance to make the event, there’s a copy of Mr. Suicide and a copy of The Mirrors there at the store, available for purchase.
Thanks to author R.J. Sullivan for taking the photo of me during the reading and granting permission for its use here.
