Everyone should have a library this supportive. Local authors are invited to sell and sign their books and meet the public at the library. Donations are made to the Friends of the Library (the supportive organization) to help meet the library’s needs. If your library doesn’t have this, you should get them to try it. It’s a win/win/win for authors, the library, and the community of readers.
Writing friends and I will be at the Local Author Showcase presented by Cumberland County Public Library in June. Join us, browse, talk to authors, and buy a book or two. We sign on request! June 15, 2019. See you there!

Writers from the Sandhills region are participating in a Local Authors Showcase sponsored by the Friends of the Library, giving the community a chance to meet the authors and learn more about their books. The Headquarters Library long-standing writer’s group, Write On, Right Now (WORN), will also have an information table at the Showcase and will be available to talk to local authors about library resources available for indie authors.
Just a quick word to say that doing a radio show was a different experience for me – especially an inaugural show offered by my former colleagues at ARRAY Publishing & Marketing, LLC (aka ARRAY Magazine ). Anne Marie Ziegler – the publisher of ARRAY and manager of its sister magazine Hola! Fayetteville and my good friend, and Anissa Short, marketing director for ARRAY and host of ARRAYdio (now coming to you regularly over the internet at ibroncoradio.com on Saturdays at 2:00 pm) and one very savvy lady – did a wonderful job their first time out of the gate on Saturday.
We reminisced about when I worked for ARRAY, took a look at what they are doing now with radio (and maybe someday TV), and talked about who they partner with (lots of good folk). Then they launched their format. It includes shout-outs to heroes in Fayetteville as well as listing and descriptions of events coming up in the city. Each week they’ll be covering topics under one of these umbrellas: the city and its development, nonprofits, and the arts, all under the watchful eye of Brian at ibroncoradio.com, a member of ibronco-radio’stalented and helpful crew.
It was great sitting in on ARRAYdio, listening to my friends do what they do best, talk about what’s good and going on in Fayetteville NC. We had a chance to talk about what I do now, and even talk about the future a bit. So, thanks ladies, for the opportunity, and good luck as you continue to march forward, breaking new ground in Fayetteville, and carrying the city into the future with your special brand of promotion.
