PRIZE-WINNING 65+ WRITERS AND JUDGES ARE THE STARS OF AGELESS AUTHORS EVENTS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY
Our first book tour is now complete. Starting in Dallas, we went to Albuquerque and three California locations -- West Hollywood, Irvine and Mountain View. In each location, we entertained substantial audiences with readings from our new book, DANG, I Wish I Hadn't Done That. We sold some books and informed audiences about our writing contests. Senior writers and their friends and families were predominant at each event. It was also nice to come person-to-person with many of the top writers I have known only by their work. This can only improve the quality of submissions to our contests and make the process of writing and submitting more enjoyable. Now it's back home to inform our wonderful judges and start evaluating our current submissions.
Be sure to enter by the February 29 deadline.
Check this space for additional book reading/signing events.
