January flew by without our usual recap of the prior year. Here are a few photos from our Holiday sales events. We attended a new one this year at The Black Dog Arts Cafe’ in Snoqualmie and returned to the Si View Holiday Bazaar. It was fun to get out in the community, and we want to thank so many of you for supporting local authors this year. I hope you enjoy the stories and books you found from us!
FVP is having our annual meeting soon, and we’ll be announcing 2020 Featured Authors and adding some updates on newly released books. We’ll also be posting the events we plan to attend this year. So stay tuned!
We’ll have a booth with all of our books at the Si View Holiday Bazaar in North Bend, WA on Saturday, December 7th…That’s tomorrow! Hours are 9:00am – 4:00pm
Address is 400 SE Orchard Drive, North Bend, WA 98045
Meet Victoria Bastedo 9:00-10:30, Rachel Barnard 10:30-1:30, David S. Moore 1:30-4:00 and Sheri J. Kennedy and Kennedy J. Quinn from 9:00-4:00.
This is always a great show with tons of well-made, creative gifts for all ages. Nothing can be manufactured or imported, so it’s the real makers out in all their glory. Come and support local artists and artisans and find excellent and unique gifts for those you love!
Congratulations to FVP Featured Author Victoria Bastedo. She solicited Kirkus for an Indie Review but was surprised and delighted to learn that they freely chose to also Feature her book, Mini-Droids and Tea, A Seattle Romance, in the July 1 2019 Kirkus Reviews Magazine – page 174! It’s a wonderful review and we’re so proud of Victoria. She’s a diligent and prolific author – not to mention fun to read – and FVP agrees this is a well-deserved honor. Check out and purchase Mini-Droids and Tea with it’s Newly Released Updated Cover HERE!

FVP won’t officially be at Norwescon, but being Independent Authors… several of our Authors will be at an FVP branded table on Writer’s Row and at the Clockwork Dragon branded table in the Dealer’s Room. Come and see us April 18th-21st!
What can you do at Norwescon? They briefly describe it like this: No matter your age or interest, Norwescon strives to make sure there is always something appealing to do over the four days of the convention. Our programming department schedules hundreds of hours of panel programming covering a myriad of subjects. Whether you’re looking for writer’s workshops, costuming tips, artistic creativity, musical concerts, or deep dives into any number of science fiction, fantasy and science topics, you’ll find it here! Learn more HERE!
We had a wonderful time again this year at our community’s Si View Holiday Bazaar. Here’s a photo of Author, David S. Moore (beige sweater) talking with a fan about some of the finer points of his book. Happy Holidays everyone!
After a brief summer hiatus, FVP is back with Fall events, looking forward to NaNoWriMo events and Holiday events! Although I say we’ve been gone, perhaps it was more of an inward focus on writing. Our group members have been moving forward on their WIPs and a few new self-pubs came out, such as Victoria Bastedo’s The Time Mechanic
I hope you’ll join us for Wine & Words Spoken Word Evening at Black Dog in Snoqualmie, October 4th. It’s always a fun and entertaining literary evening. Spotlight Author will be FVP’s own, David S. Moore. See you there!
