TODAY IS THE DAY!!!

Well, it's here people!  At long last, and I'm so excited!

Today Scott Appleton, author of the books "Swords of the Six" and "By Sword, By Right" and owner of the publishing company "Flaming Pen Press" will be in Peoria Illinois this evening 5pm -8pm at Berean Bookstore just off Sheridan Road to sign books and meet with fans.

And hopefully meet new fans.  ;)  I've been spreading the word like crazy, reminding friends and other people over and over again.  I've been posting posters, telling classmates and teachers, and updating my Facebook. Even my mother has jumped in, braved the dangerous waters of FB, and has been posting reminders and updates.  She's also posting all over our APACHE group's page, and has been contacting homeschooling families in our Co-op.

If anyone out there following this blog lives anywhere near Peoria Illinois, you should come by tonight.  This promises to be an epic event!

Mr. Appleton will also have a booth set up at the Central Illinois Home Schooler's Apache Convention, held tomorrow and Saturday (April 15th and 16th) at the Peoria Civic Center.  He will be selling books, signing books, and meeting with fans during the convention, so if any of you home schoolers out there have families that attend the convention, be sure to check out his booth!

I can hardly wait for this evening!  And tomorrow.  And Saturday for that matter.  :D

I have also reviewed Mr. Appleton's book here on The Pen and Parchment, and he was kind enough to allow me to interview him here as well.

You can read my review of his book here:

Ah, I hope you have fun :( sometimes I wonder why all the good Christian writers come from the states :P

Squeaks.

lol! You are too funny Squeaks, because you know this isn't true. ;) You are an amazing writer (I know! I've read your stuff! ) And you are not from the states.

You just wait. ;) I can't wait to read your finished book when it's published. :D

I know of a lot of Canadian writers, Squeaks! :D Not necessarily published ones (yet!) but there is a gathering!

Unfortunately, I regret to say that I cannot portal over in time. My blasted turkey got his cheese sandwich stuck in the generator.

Sorry. :P Next time!

That's alright Jake! Next time is always a good time. :)

The signing went well, though not as many people showed up as I thought would. Mr. Appleton still managed to sell 7 books of the 10 he had set up at the table. He said that those were decent numbers considering the fact that it was a thursday night rather than a weekend.

More details later, and pictures from the Apache convention. I got to the signing tonight only to realize I had left my camera at home. *facepalm* I will not forget tomorrow! :D
