Northwest Author Fair/Lincoln City, OR

You can’t beat the Oregon coast. (Don’t worry, those are kites, not UFO’s. Or are they…?)

Last weekend was fantastic! My little family and I travelled to Lincoln City, Oregon to participate in the NW Author’s Fair at Bob’s Beach Books. Since it also happened to be approximately 100 million degrees inland, we left early and turned the weekend into a mini-vacation. Turns out, quite a few other people had the same idea!

This is what a crowded beach looks like in Oregon.

I really enjoyed the event on Saturday, the best part was having my husband and daughter joining me at the table. I love meeting other indie authors and bouncing ideas off each other to see what worked/what didn’t. I find it very inspiring to be around artists who are at least trying to get their work out there and I have to say indie authors are the best group yet. We all admit “Hey, I’m not selling much, but I’m working on my dream” and that’s what it’s all about.

Is there a frustrated three year old hiding behind Myth? Yes. Yes, there is.

Don’t worry, she got her four hours at the aquarium.

That was my last book festival/author event of the summer and suddenly, summer is almost over. I’m back to work on my next book The Reanimation of Robert (ETA late fall!) and planning/strategizing website changes for both this site and erinritch.com. Have I mentioned that 2016 has been freaking awesome?

Good bye, misty coast. Till next time!

The of Summer ’16

I’m excited to say I am thisclose to finishing the third draft of “Myth” and the artwork for the cover is looking amazing. The release of “Myth” will be timed perfectly with the two book fairs I will be attending this summer. I’m really looking forward to bringing No Wyverns Publishing to these events and meeting/networking with other authors. Oh yeah, and selling books!!

Here’s where I’ll be this summer!

Pioneer Square/ Portland, OR
Booth # 50

I’ve been assigned the booth near the Starbucks…man, did they figure me out or what! 9 Bridges is an organization of writers based out of Portland. I signed up for this festival immediately once registration was open back in January! No Wyverns Publishing will have our own table there. I’m really excited about the other authors that will be at this event as well. It’s in the middle of summer so I’ll be well-hydrated…oh yeah, and also well caffeinated.

Finally! I’ve been wanting to join the Northwest Author Fair for several years now, but due to limited space and the popularity of the event, I haven’t been able to get in until now! Again, the list of authors that will be here are amazing…and I get to spend the day at the coast. Sign me up!

I’ll be selling/signing copies of all three of my titles at these events – “Memories Wait Alone”, “Quinn Family Adventures” (with its brand new cover!) and “Myth.” I can’t wait but I have a lot to do before then…so its back to editing and…oh yeah, more editing. Cheers!
