On the evening of January sixth I had the opportunity to address the Methodist Men’s Club of the McCormick United Methodist Church in McCormick, South Carolina. I found the twenty-seven men in attendance a pleasure to share an evening with. Following a poor man’s dinner of hot dogs and beans and a short devotional program, I shared my experiences as an author.
I purposely did not take along copies of my novels to sell… I did not wish to make these men feel obligated to buy. What I did do was highlight my road of becoming an author, provide insight to my inspiration for writing both THE BLANKET HILL INSURGENCY and BREAKING LIBERATOR’S SHACKLES, and an accounting of the research I am conducting for my next novel, TARNISHED VALOR. A lively question and answer period followed my presentation.
To my surprise, during the five days following my presentation, there has been a run on sales for my novels at the three retail outlets for my novels in McCormick.
If anyone needs a program for a service club, church group or veterans’ organization meeting, please contact me.
