Local Author readings at Elissimo Coffee and an update on the publication of ‘Karma’

Hello folks!

I’ve been busy organizing a monthly local author’s reading even at Elissimo Coffee in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. The inaugural reading will be on Thursday, July 11th, and will run on the first Thursday of the month after that. I encourage all authors who can make it to sign up for a reading. It doesn’t matter where you are in your career, we have authors scheduled ranging from unpublished to ones who travel the country to do book signings. If you’ve written it, we’d love you to come read it! I also encourage ALL of you that can to come on down and listen to your fellow authors.

I can tell you that Elissimo has fantastic coffee and tea drinks, as well as some of the best pastries you can find. There are also several good places to eat in the complex, if you are looking for a full dinner.

You can read more about the events and the schedule here.

I look forward to seeing you!


In other news, ‘Karma‘ will be published in the anthology Monsters, which is the third in a series of “Dark Drabbles” anthologies by Black Hare Press. It will be published on August 20th, 2019, and is available for preorder now.

A drabble is a form of microfiction, in which the story must be told in exactly 100 words – no more or less.
