Join me for a Ohio City Writers fundraiser, Every Day I Hype the Book, on Wednesday, May 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. I'll be taking part in a panel of seasoned writers and promoters who really know what it takes to get noticed in the perilous sea that is today's publishing industry. $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
Iffin' you'd like to participate, Cleveland Magazine is accepting ballots for its annual "Best of" issue. Yes, there is a blog category. No, you don't have to live in the region or fill out the entire ballot to vote. You might win a prize. Read the instructions and I love you.
On Saturday, June 23, at 2 p.m., I'll be chatting about The Irish Hungarian Guide to the Domestic Arts at the Beachwood Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library. Free.
If you miss that, catch me hanging out all day at Loganberry's annual Author Alley on Saturday, July 7 on Larchmere. You can chat with area authors and browse the most elaborate and unusual indie bookstore in the area. People, Loganberry's is really something to see. Free.
Also, the surrounding neighborhood is full up with top notch dining and shopping (as in local and indie).
Since you'll be starving sometime between then and now, I'll be offering up a workshop, Eat. Love. Write., at the CCPL's Independence branch on Wednesday, August 15, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. I'll be talking all about food memoir and, baby, Erin know how to write about eats. Free.
Now then, in lieu of actual content from your humble hostess, go dig my stiffest "Best of" Cleveland blog competition and read this adorable bevy of entries from a Cleveland Lady's diary.
