In other news, I'm pleased to announce I will be signing books at the Lakewalk Bookshop at 1427 London Road in the beautiful city of Duluth (one of my favorites of all the places I've lived!)  The signing is Tuesday, August 9, from 5 to 7 p.m.  If you know a book lover in the Duluth area, please let them know. I'd love to meet anyone in the area!

July has been a big month for me and for the Maple Grove Night Writers!  John and Stephanie rode in the Maple Grove Arts Center's cars in the Maple Grove Days Parade Thursday night, and had a blast! 

We had a joint book signing at the Maple Grove Arts Center on Saturday, and you wouldn't believe the people I found reading Blue Bells of Scotland! 

The past two Tuesdays have been two of our three writing classes at the Maple Grove Community Center. We have covered some basic critiquing, research, using the senses in writing, and done several writing exercises.  If you're in the area, there's still one more class you can get to on August 2, 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  We'll be talking about publishing, marketing, and forming critique groups.  Response to the class has been very positive, and we have all really enjoyed meeting more writers and hearing about their works in progress. We look forward to holding more classes next summer.
