Meeting Authors at the #Library with @Meganslayer #libraryweek #authors

I love going to the library–you’ve probably noticed that. I mean, adventure time in a building? I’m there.

But there are a few things I love about the library. My local branch has a fantastic local author section. If you’re an author in my area and you have a book, they’ll get it on the shelf. You may have to donate a copy, but hey, it’s still exposure and a feel good thing. I donate every time.

The other awesome thing is they bring the authors in often to speak. How cool is that? Author events at the library. I’ve done one event a few times called the Cascade of Authors. The neat thing about this event, other than it’s named after a waterfall in the local town, is the way it brings together authors of multiple genres. I’ve met friars, nuns, poets, non-fiction and fiction authors at this event. We all get a chance to speak and we’re all featured. Another event I’ve done is the Books and Brunch. This is a much smaller event, featuring four authors, but this year the theme is mystery. Four authors who write mystery books, in addition to other genres. It’s fun. Who doesn’t like a good mystery? Plus, there’s food!

I’ve also had the pleasure of doing a few solo events. I’ve hosted an event at the library entitled, “So You Want to Be an Author.” I enjoy helping other aspiring writers find their legs and get going in the business. I believe we’re all in this together and I’ll do my part to cheerlead for everyone. I’ve done solo events about my personal books, which were fun and attended events for other authors.

If you get the chance, visit the library. See what events are going on. You never know who will show up at the library. You never know what you’ll learn. Check them out!

Going home could be just the thing his muse needs and his heart desires.

Tristan Paulson needs the words to return. He loves his career penning novels of small-town love, but his muse has gone missing. If he can’t write, he can go back to his roots and sort through the items his newly deceased uncle left behind. Once in Sullavan, Ohio, he realizes just how much he loved the place. Then he sees the handsome librarian—Michael is just the kind of guy he’s always wanted. How can he go back to the big city when Sullavan calls to him?

Michael Kane wants nothing more than to be surrounded by his books and the written word. He knows heartbreak and isn’t in the mood to put himself out into the dating pool again…until he sees Tristan. He wants to be with Tristan, but he’s too shy. A handsome man like Tristan wouldn’t be interested in a quiet man like Michael…would he?

Here’s an excerpt!

“There’s a bookstore and it has a coffee shop. I go there. I spend a lot of time with Molly because she’s alone at the B&B. Her last boyfriend was a real peach and when he left, he screwed her over. Stole her money, wrecked her car…so she’s kind of touchy.” He stretched his legs. “Otherwise I do my own thing. I spend a lot of time at the library and working with the ladies group who helps the library.”

“No boyfriend?”

Isn’t he full of questions again? “No.”

“Me either.” Tristan blew out a long breath. “Why don’t we go down to the diner? I’m starving and…why not?”

“Sure.” He eyeballed Tristan. The guy wasn’t asking him to come home with him. Just a meal together. Why did this feel like more? Because he wanted more? Christ, he hadn’t gone out with anyone since Barry and even then, the connection wasn’t strong. He stood and stretched, then settled next to Tristan. He could be crazy, but he’d like to find out more about Tristan.

Tristan remained beside Michael as they walked to the diner. He could get used to being with Michael. He’d only been in town for twenty-four hours and he couldn’t fathom not having Michael in his life. As friends? Absolutely. As lovers? If he had his way, then yes.
