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!
Join us Thursday, March 8th from 6:00-9:00pm for Wine & Words at The Black Dog Arts Cafe’ in Snoqualmie! FVP’s Featured Author, Victoria Bastedo with be our Special Guest for this evening of Author Readings and tasty treats. All ages welcome. A Literary Open Mic will follow the program. See you there!
Our Holiday Tradition…FVP Books will have a booth at Si View Holiday Bazaar in North Bend on December 2, 2017. Come on out between 9-3 and Meet our Authors and Find lots of Great Books for Gifts or to Read During the Holidays. Also stop in at the Holiday Festival in downtown North Bend afterwards for a fun family celebration and tree lighting. See you there!
All characters need a home. It’s like meeting a new friend at work or at church. You may laugh in the hallways or at break time, but after a while the friendship doesn’t progress until you take that person home. It’s that way in a lot of shows on television too, as well as in love stories; meeting the family for the first time means something.
So give your characters a home, even if your story is set (as my current one is) on a spaceship. On the Enterprise in Star Trek we saw Spock at home in his quarters, playing a lute. In Middle Earth our hobbits returned to their hole in Bag End.
If you see a thriller where the spy only lives his life in hotel rooms and Moneypenny is his deepest relationship, there may be some excitement and fancy gadgetry, but there’s not a lot of personal connection.
Even if the home is oppressive at the beginning of the story and the goal is to get away from it, bring your characters to a home worth having by the end. Building that house makes a richer story.
Tomorrow Night’s the Night! Come on out for Readings from our Authors and a Literary Open Mic for the Community. At The Black Dog Arts Cafe’. Starts at 6:00. More Details HERE.

Selling books at a Holiday Bazaar may sound a bit bizarre, but for the past 4 years we’ve been very well received by our community. They are kind and enlightened enough to understand that writers of fiction are artists too. Here are a few photos from the event… Showing three of our authors and a patron with a very cool holiday shirt!
