Sunday morning, the RBC, and a Book Giveaway

So, first of all, I was back at my post in front of Recycle Books yesterday during the Farmers Market. It's the 1st Sunday I've been there in 5 weeks!  Are you kidding me?  I don't think I've ever gone that long without manning the book recommending table.  Well, let me tell you this - it was like coming home.  When I went to my shelves to get my books, I got a big smile on my face.  These books are my buddies.  Strange, you say?  I can't argue with you.


Next, just a reminder that Tuesday night, July 14, is our next RBC meeting.  A.R. Silverberry, author of Wyndano's Cloak, will be coming to run the gauntlet...I mean, answer our club members' questions.  Remember, we meet from 6:30-7:00 to discuss/rate the book.  Then the author comes at 7:00 and stays till about 8:00 or 8:15.  Remember that you don't have to read the book in order to come meet the author.

Finally, we've got a book giveaway.  It's interesting how this developed.  Ann Bridges suggested that another author, Dick Yaeger, contact me.  Through a series of events, Dick ended up with a bunch of free books from the noted author, Steven Pressfield.  So I took 10 books.  Here they are with the number of each that I got:

Solitary by Giora Romm (2) - non-fiction story of "The Crash, Captivity and Comeback of an Ace Fighter Pilot"
Left of Bang by Patrick Van Horne and Jason A. Riley (2) - "A Comprehensive and no-nonsense approach to heightening each and every one of our gifts of fear"
Turning Pro by Steven Pressfield (2) - "Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life's Work"
The Authentic Swing by Steven Pressfield (2) - "Notes from the Writing of a First Novel"
The Warrior Ethos by Steven Pressfield (2) - "Writing about War"

If you want one or more, let me know.  If you are local, I will make arrangements to get it/them to you.  If you are out of the area, I will even mail it/them to you.  Let me know.

MEA CULPA:  Remember how I PROMISED a review in my next blog?  I lied.
