You’re Invited!

You’re Invited!

How does an author go about writing a book? What goes into researching a historical novel? Will there be refreshments?
Tuesday February 8, 2011, I’ll be speaking at the Antioch Public Library in Antioch, California from 6:30-7:30 pm.
`
I’ll be discussing the process of writing a novel and how I researched the Wings of Glory series – A Distant Melody (2010), A Memory Between Us (2010), and Blue Skies Tomorrow (August 2011). Since each of the novels is partially set in Antioch, California during World War II, I’ll share some fun tidbits about wartime Antioch, including a fantastic story about a president’s son, a dog, and a grieving GI.
Most importantly…yes, there will be refreshments!
`
Please contact me with any questions. I would love to see you there!

    If I lived there, I’d be there! I LOVED your first two books and am looking forward to the third one coming out!

    The ice storm hit here starting yesterday when I chipped ice off my Honda CRV for 5 minutes, today was 8 minutes. Schools were closed, but my favorite place, the library, was open as usual. Being around Lake Effect Snow, you pretty much get used to the weather which is constantly changing. Will you have highlights or a transcript/interview from the event on your site?

    Jill & Sunnymay – I will not tell you the temperature today in northern California. I won’t. That would be cruel. (65 degrees)

    Sunnymay – oops, skipped your question by mistake! I could definitely make that a blog post. And thanks for the idea – I’m always desperate for ideas. I’ve put that down for Friday Feb. 11.

    Sarah would love to be there, but I am babysitting that day. I am sure you don’t want to compete with a 2 year old that can’t stop talking — even in her sleep! (She is cute though.:-) Keep posting your readings, I will show up one of these days. Bless you, Victoria
