So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

A Rock and a Hard Place by Deanna Klingel

My good friend, Deanna Klingel, is launching a new book this weekend. I look forward to reading it as Deanna's books are all good. If possible, I want to go to this event.

Sunday, March 9, 1:00-4:00 pm
St. Jude Church, 3011 U.S. Highway 64 East, Cashiers
Deanna Klingel will celebrate the release of A Rock and a Hard Place, A Lithuanian Love Story. Lithuanian food, beverage, music, book discussion, reading, signing, and meet the couple about whom the book was written. Bring your friends and family. 

If you can't be there in person, you can still be part of the party. On Friday before the event, go to Behind the tab "Rock & A Hard Place" you will find recipes to try at home. On Sunday the day of the event, go to and order a book, then send e-mail with your name and address to She will send you the signature and bookmark for your book. Monday following the event enjoy photos of the event posted on facebook page Books By Deanna.

Isn't this an interesting way to make us all feel a part of the book party? Deanna will be guest of Coffee with the Poets and Writers on March 12 at Blue Mountain Coffee and Grill, 10:30 a.m. This restaurant is located between Hayesville, NC and Murphy, NC. 

I hope our local writers and poets will come out and meet Deanna who is a delightful person as well as an excellent author. 

I am reading Cracks in the Ice by Deanna at this time on my Kindle. Most all of her books are available in print and as an e-book.

Author Events - What Do We Want?

Have you published a novel or memoir or non-fiction book?
Do you want to promote your book to the public? 

This article on NCWN blog is excellent concerning author presentations whether in book stores or other venues.
My favorite is the author talks where there is interchange between the writer and the audience, similar to what Deanna Klingel did at John Campbell folk school Thursday night.

Read the above article and go on to read the original post (follow the link at the end of the article) and tell us what you think?
What do you want when you go to hear and see an author?

Last weekend some of us, members of NCWN West, set up a booth at the Festival on the Square in Hayesville, NC. Saturday was busy but hot. This festival is sponsored each year by the Clay County Historical and Arts Council. Janice Padgett, president of the Council and Reba Beck, co-chairman of the festival committee,  were especially supportive of our being there.

Besides Echoes Across the Blue Ridge, the anthology created by Netwest and edited by Nancy Simpson, we had poetry books by Nancy and Robert King. Clarence Newton brought his brand new poetry book, Short Glances Forward and A Long Look Back, and I finally got my hands on it.

Anthologies, such as my Cup of Comfort for Horse Lovers, sold better than poetry, so next year, I hope members who have had their work in anthologies will bring copies to sign.

Deanna Klingel drove down from Brevard to sign her books. She writes for young people and had a very successful day introducing her characters to the children in Clay County.

Many thanks to Joan Howard, Janice Moore, Linda Smith and Beth and especially Robert King who was there all day both days. I was happy to introduce quite a few people to Netwest and to Writers Circle. 
We almost made it through the festival without rain, but about 20 minutes before closing, the downpour started and we all came home in wet clothes. It was fun and I hope next year we will have more members participate.
