This is just a friendly reminder to all you Chi-Town "BOOK LOVERS" out there...next weekend is the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest, sponsored by the Chi-Tribune, Navy Pier, Audi, and a dozen other major sponsors. New York Times Bestselling Authors will be in attendance, including NYTBSA James Patterson, who won 2014 Young Adult Literary Award. Congrats to Mr. Patterson! :D Further, I will be selling/signing my own chart-reaching books (Mystery and Fantasy) on Sunday from 2-6 p.m. at my table inside the Chicago Writers Association canopy. However, due to my financial restraints that come as a result of being a disabled paratrooper-veteran of the U.S. Army, I'm sorry to say that I will only have a limited number of books to sell, about 50, so as they say, "First come, first serve." At least I've got hundreds of awesome autographed book markers to give out! ;) Finally, if you wish-to-and-can attend Chi-Town's Book Festival that's sure to be "A WHOLE LOT OF FUN", but need more details (address, blueprin ...
