The Sunday Post – No. 7

SundayPost
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

On Friday I attended a MWA event at the Mysterious Bookshop, the last independent bookstore in New York City.  I had a good time chatting with Dana Cameron, Jaden Terrell, Elizabeth Zelvin, Margery Flax, Daniel J. Hale, Mike Befeler, Chris Grabenstein, Harley Jane Kozak, Lori Armstrong, Sharon Potts, Darrell James, Steve Ulfelder, Jeri Westerson, Charlaine Harris, Linda Joffe Hull and Jess Lourey and met Reed Farrel Coleman. There were other authors there that I didn’t get a chance to meet. I did pick up a few books to add to my bookshelves that seems to be filling up every week.
