On June 26, I had a wonderful book event at the South Butler County Library in Saxonburg, PA. There was a small but lively group in attendance, and I had a great time doing an oral interpretation of my new novel, The Reach of the Banyan Tree. I had many voices to do, two Vietnamese men, 4 Americans, and 1 French. And even though I was battling through a cold, I think I succeeded all right.
After the reading, I fielded some great questions from the audience including questions about writing inspiration, mapping out a book, among others.
It really was a humbling experience. There are so many entertainment options and so many different responsibilities that each of us have everyday. So to have anyone show up at a book event to talk about my writing, well, I am honored. So I thank my friends and new friends who came out. It was a great encouragement.
I have another event in Jamestown, NY on July 11. Can’t wait!
Here I am doing my introduction.
I have no idea what I am doing here. Looks like I’m telling a fish story.
Here I am in the middle of a gripping passage when Chip is trying to convince Thuy’s father to let them get married.
A friend and his son, hopefully a new fan!
Signing a book.
