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!
I’m so excited about King Co. Library System choosing my book LIKENESS as their first Valley Reads feature for community book club reading!! Our newspaper, The Valley Record did a Feature Article on the program. I’m #almostfamous !
Anyone who REGISTERS for the program can pick up their FREE book at North Bend Library after April 7th, and then I’ll be leading a Discussion Event at North Bend Library on May 2nd. The book is great for discussion since it’s concept driven and is a playful romp full of thought-provoking ideas regarding similarity and difference.
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!

The first Capital Indie Book Con or CIBC presented by Clockwork Dragon was a fun and eclectic event. We met tons of other authors, the amazing and friendly readers who braved checking out a first year event, and everyone left with mass quantities of excellent books to read. FVP plans to return next year…Watch for info, readers, and definitely put this next one on your calendar to attend!
Note from Editor: I’m sorry I was so busy meeting cool authors and checking out the books that I failed to get more than half of the booths in photos…I even missed Clockwork Dragon and our fabulous guest author: Jennifer Brozek ! Sincere apologies for my poor reporting. -sjk
