There's a lot of book-lovin' things going on around here in the next few weeks!
If you lean toward the hipster/lit (litster?) side of book events, check out LitFic's September 23rd event at the Rendezvous. They come around quarterly, so if you miss this one, you should pencil in December 9 and watch the site for details.
UF and Sci-Fi
The University Bookstore always has tons of author and other bookish events, in both their Seattle and Bellevue locations. A few that are catching my eye in October are Jim Butcher, Greg Bear and Ann Leckie, and Laura Ann Gilman.
The annual Greater Seattle RWA conference will be held in Bellevue from October 16 through the 18th. Since I'm not actually an author, I don't attend the conference, but I am really looking forward to the reader appreciation event on the 17th this year. They're changing it up from the usual big giant book signing. I'm not sure what exactly to expect but it sounds like fun.
While not Seattle proper, in nearby (ish) Port Townsend, if witchy books are your thing, you can "Meet The Witches," an event that includes an historic tour, food, readings and signings, and even a séance.
The authors Cindy Stark, Tiffinie Helmer, Kerrigan Byrne and Cynthia St. Aubin invite you to celebrate the release of their second collaborative novel, Which Witch Is Wicked the thrilling sequel to The Witches of Port Townsend to be released October, 2015! In the novel, four identical sisters are prophesied to hold the fate of the entire world in their powerful hands.
But mainly, of course, I am COMPLETELY wound up for Reading Until Dawn, which isn't actually in Seattle.
Donate books and/or swag to the Seattle raffle basket, and I offer to you in thanks a promo spot here on Alpha Heroes in the form of your choice: promo/press release, cover reveal, guest post, or review; to be scheduled at a mutually convenient time (I'm pretty flexible).
This is kind of a big deal for me to offer because I rarely do pure promo. But I'm having fun with this whole thing and the featured blogger gig has me stepping out of my comfort zone a little anyway. The baskets will be raffled with proceeds going to The Wild Animal Sanctuary, considered one of the top animal welfare organizations in the world.
If you would like to participate, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to have all items received by the end of September. Thank you so much!
