I’m back from the Killer Nashville Writer’s Conference feeling inspired.

I met so many talented, encouraging writers, whether they were bestselling authors or other just starting out.

The workshops, panels, events, and networking were worth their weight in gold. No matter how many conferences I attend in the future, Killer Nashville will always stand out.

Many thanks to the organizers, panelists, guests, and attendees for making it an unforgettable experience for me.

 

MONTREAL BOOK SIGNING – MARCH 17, 2018

Chapters Bookstore – 6321 TransCanada Autoroute, Pointe-Claire, Quebec

 

The signing was a big success and I had a wonderful day.  Here are a few of the pictures.  Thank you to everyone for stopping by to pick up a book and chat for a while!  If anyone has any other pictures, please send them to me at aj.mccarthy@hotmail.com

APRIL 22, 2018 – L.A. TIMES FESTIVAL OF BOOKS – UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

I attended this book festival that took place over two days – April 21st and 22nd – in beautiful southern California! I was very excited about this opportunity to meet other authors and book-lovers.

My signing slot was Sunday morning from 10:00 to 11:25 a.m. at the Black Rose Writing booth, but I dropped by the booth on Saturday to scope out the site, meet the other hard-working Black Rose authors, and enjoy the beautiful venue.

What an experience! It was my first time attending a book festival (I know. do you believe it?) and I couldn’t have asked for a better initiation. The weather, of course, was warm and beautiful (I had left behind lots of snow in Québec), and the USC campus was lovely. I was in book-lover’s paradise.

 

 

 

APRIL 28, 2018 – BAY AREA BOOK FESTIVAL – DOWNTOWN BERKELEY

What a week! We took in the sights in L.A., and drove up the coast, visiting Santa Barbara, Carmel, and Monterey along the way. San Francisco, of course, is a jewel to be enjoyed, and we even squeezed in a day of wine-tasting in the Napa Valley. A dream come true!

I spent all day Saturday, signing copies of Sins of the Fathers at the Black Rose Writing booth of the Bay Area Book Festival.  Having the entire day gave me a lot of time to network with fellow Black Rose authors Brad Chisholm and Claire Kim. Matthew Brockmeyer even dropped by a couple of times to chat. It was loads of fun meeting authors and book readers who passed by and stopped to exchange experiences and stories.

Unfortunately, I was too distracted to take pictures in Berkeley, except for this one of our table.

All in all, it was a great ten days in California, and it definitely gave me the taste to do it again.
