On May 19th, Thursday, (2016), I will have a book signing event for my book, The House On Sunflower Road, at Our Place, 6700 Fairview Road, Suite 104, Charlotte, NC 28210, tel#: 704-554-7748, hours: 2 o'clock pm - 5 pm.
I will be offering a promo gift certificate of $50.00 from Our Place. Anyone who purchases a book will be eligible to sign an entry form. A drawing will be held after the event and the winner will be notified by mail or phone whichever is the choice when filling out the entry form.
I hope to introduce my book characters to many of my present friends as well as to new friends. When I finish a book, I feel connected to my book characters, they inhabit a place in my mind for time unending. I hope their story captures hearts as they have mine.
