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.
Another article from Matt Grant that I wanted to share, one that I know he is excited about having written.
I’ve spent a good part of my life encouraging people to write. Writing can be profitable, but it is also good for stability, growth, and your soul. People need to feel the freedom to try their hand at it, to derive whatever benefit it gives them.
To see through writer Grant’s eyes how this school operates was both exciting and a balm to my own soul. Read it and see the good people can do.
