We participated as authors, and shared a booth with the Florida Writers Association. We did bring several of the anthologies, though, so some of our other authors got exposure.
Perhaps we’ll get a separate MAHLLC booth in a future year; the event is well organized and we loved meeting everyone there.
If you're wondering why it's been so long between posts, it's because we've been busy. I said that before, but it's still true. Last year was slow in terms of publication, but productive for our own writing.
We jump-started 2017 with the launch of our novel, Murder on the Mullet Express, and have spent the last two months working on guest posts, interviews, and other promotional activities. We're also hitting the book fairs. That's what you do when you write a book and want it to sell: you get out there and peddle it.
We'll be spending the next two weekends at the Southwest Florida Reading Festival in Fort Meyers and the Venice Book Fair. After that, we'll have a little more time to get Strangely Funny IV to press. We're currently contacting authors about their stories. Once that's done, things with the book should move along nicely.
Other plans for the future: We have at least one single-author collection we'll be publishing this year, and probably one other book once we decide between several other attractive selections.
I'd like to do another anthology, but it may not come to pass. There's only so many books we can do in a year, and we want to spend more time in 2017 focusing on the promotion of all the press' books.
This Saturday, May 3rd, we will be appearing at the Arts Expo 2014, hosted by the College of Central Florida. The Expo takes place on the CF Citrus Campus Learning Center, located at 3800 South Lecanto Highway in Lecanto, Florida.
We will have copies of all the MAHLLC books available for sale, plus print copies of our novels.
The expo will feature several authors, including Barbara Cairns, Regina Kyle, and Flossie Benton-Rogers. You can find our table next to the one for the First Florida Chapter of the Historical Novel Society.
