Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Two More Signings

On Thursday evening, three of us Valley Writers presented the Valley Writers Sampler at the Roanoke County Library.

Dick Raymond , yours truly, and Rodney Franklin

Rodney Franklin and Dick Raymond read some of their poetry, and I read my essay, "Out of the Fog," from A Cup of Comfort for Writers. Afterwards we chatted with the audience, sold books, signed, and ate cookies.

Me— with my trusty iBook and some Cup of Comfort books.

On Saturday afternoon, five of us Lake Writers—Jim Morrison (Bedford Goes to War), Sally Roseveare (Secrets at Spawning Run), Jean Brobeck (Musings), Marion Higgins (When Men Move to the Basement), and I—participated in the 6th annual Diamond Hill Sunflower Festival at the Diamond Hill General Store in Moneta. Although the temps were in the mid-90s, the store had space reserved for us in the shade so we could sell and sign our books.

Here I am, ready to sign!

Despite the high temperatures, we had a good time chatting, signing books, and watching people. No telling who might be interested in our books!

Anyhow, I had a great time at both book events.

I will show my kids this picture of you will with Spongebob and your fame will skyrocket! Great photo op Becky! I am jealous!

I am glad to watch this path you are on, as I should be aggressively marketing my book when it hits bookstores also. Thanks for keeping us all in the know!
