I read in the May issue of The Writer magazine that the New York Book Festival was accepting submissions of independently published books for its “annual competition honoring books that deserve greater attention from the world’s publishing capital.” Lo and behold, my memoir Staying Alive: A Love Story received an honorable mention, and I’ve been invited to the Festival on Saturday to participate on a panel on “marketing.”
The New York Festival will be an all day event at the Radisson on Martinique on Broadway, 49 West 32nd Street – and it’s free!. If you are in the city Saturday – stop in. More info at http://newyorkbookfestival.com/ and my blog post about it at http://mommyofthebride.blogspot.com/. Should be an adventure!
