Saturday, January 20, 2PM, Half Price Books Flagship

Writer John Garzone of Lenox, MA shows his certificate and check for winning first prize in the short story category of the 2016 contest.

Everyone is invited to attend the Ageless Authors event — a book signing, reading and contest workshop — at the Half Price Flagship store, 5803 E. Northwest Highway in Dallas Saturday, January 20, 2-4PM.

Senior writers from the Dallas area will read from their pieces just published in the first Ageless Authors Anthology and they will sign books purchased at the event. Writers working on pieces to enter in the current writing contest can ask questions of the winners about the contest and how to submit their work. Deadline for the current contest is February 28, 2018 and cash prizes will be awarded. For more information on the January 20 event, email us or call 214 405-5093.



Our online bookstore is a work in progress. Very soon, it will sell titles that interest senior readers, most of them written by older writers. But this is the portion of our website that will take some time to set up. If you are 65 or older and have a book to sell, send us information on it. In the meantime, we want to tell you about the other benefits of Ageless Authors. Let’s just say the Ageless Authors Bookstore is coming soon.


At 65 years of age, some people are still climbing mountains or fording rivers. But you don’t need physical feats to express yourself. All you need for writing or art is a brain and fingers. As long as you have the physical ability to sit and work, you can create. And now you can show your work through Ageless Authors. It’s about time the world discovered your talents.

Th3 Simple Questions: Slice Open Everyday Life
By Jean W. Yeager


MARK KRAUSMAN  / GoodReads Review –   5Stars –

“Honestly I have been in a slump for awhile when it comes to reading books until I got my hands on this one… let’s just say this amazing book found me and I am ecstatic that it did. The style of short essays or “slices” each with the “Who am I”, “Why am I here”, and “What do I want”, format took me by surprise as it was an energizing way to read and process thought provoking concepts with each “slice” only being a few pages long and the analogies were artfully presented as real life experiences to which anyone can relate.”


JACK MAGNUS / Readers Favorite Review:

When I finished the last response to the three simple questions, I realized that I had gotten to know a kindred spirit, someone whose blog seems well worth getting to know a lot better. Th3 Simple Questions: Slice Open Everyday Life is highly recommended.”  5-Stars
