I'm beginning a new promotion strategy for "The Crossings," with senior citizen centers, schools and libraries. I'm available for signings, readings, discussions and other events. My graphic designer, Sheri Allan (skagraphics.com) and I collaborated to come up with a period piece that fits the era and gets attention. We settled on a replica of an old newspaper that announces that Georgie has "flown the coup," so to speak and has taken off to New Orleans to see the Mardi Gras. More than likely, it was the scuttle-butt of Latonia in 1932 when it happened. If you have any leads for me for groups, schools, book clubs, etc. that I can approach, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
