22 days and counting!

Yes, in 22 days I'll be headed to Deadwood, South Dakota to participate in the first Wild Deadwood Reads. There are over 50 authors signed up to participate in the book signing Saturday, June 10th at the Gold Dust Casino.  There are children's authors, Sci-fi, mystery, thriller, romance, non-ficiton. You name the genre and there is an author there who writes it.

Not only is there a book signing, but on Friday authors have sponsored buses to take groups to Mount Rushmore and the 1880's Black Hills train. There are also ghost tours being sponosored by authors and the PBR Rodeo Friday night. It's a fun-filled weekend packed with fun things to do and an author event that should have have a book for any reader.

I'm one of the sponsors of a bus ride to the 1880's Train Ride. It's an hour ride to and from the train and we've put together a Bingo game for on the way to the event and a BlackJack game for on the way back. The authors sponsoring the bus will have prizes we're giving to the winners of the games.

Then Friday night I'm also one of the rodeo sponsor authors. We pitched in to make a section of the seating half price for readers attending the event, and we'll be doing a pre-rodeo gathering at the section and a bar hop after the rodeo. You'll be able to find the sponsoring authors by their cowboy hats with red bandanas and an WDR pin.

I'm hoping to do a bit of sightseeing and research while back there but the trip will be a quick one as I have to get back home to get ready for a family reunion I'm in charge of 10 days after I return! And I have family visiting before the reunion. June will be a busy month for me. Other than the Wild Deadwood REads you may not see much of me here. If you want to keep up with my daily happenings you can join my Paty's Posse Facebook Page.  or my author facebook page. It's easy to share things on these than try to write a whole blog while I'm attending an event.

If you're going to be in the area and would like free admission tickets to the book signing contact me.
