Follow Up from Westerville Presentation on World Building

Information and a few quick photos from the event:

Due to a large reception for a new director at the Westerville Public Library (scheduled long after I was scheduled to present) I presented in the Staff Lounge, which worked out perfect for the 14 that attended. Most were writers, but one attendee was a film maker and one enjoyed learning about new things and had attended my previous presentation at the library.

Discussing Matte vs. Glossy Covers
Great questions and discussion. Those attending admitted I kept them engaged and was informative and helpful. That was the goal!

Speaking afterwards with Ms. Huffman, the Program and Community Engagement Director, we laid out a plan for a presentation engagement again next summer :)

It's an awesome library, and they have a lot going on for their patrons and the local community.

Efforts to Improve Knowledge and Skills for Writing

I listen to a lot of audiobooks, trying to make efficient use of time while driving or doing mundane work around the house.

Normally I listen to fictional tales, but sometimes I focus on nonfiction, mainly history related to World War II or the U.S. Civil War.

Recently, I've switched up and have been listening to these two titles:

Obviously to assist with refresher on grammar rules and usage

To provide insight and background information for my fantasy novels

Thunder Wells is Now Available in Audio!

Thunder Wells is now available as an Audiobook!

No one ever said surviving an alien invasion would be easy.

Jack Fairbanks made it through the initial wave of attacks, but now the Mawks have seeded the Earth with dozers and crawlers, tracking beasts that crave human flesh and are bent on hunting the remnants of humankind to extinction. 

Joined by Lucia, a hardened urban survivor, Jack finds himself caught up in a secret plan to turn the course of the invasion. Can a college sophomore and a ragtag force of soldiers survive when the Mawks descend from orbit and begin their final assault?

Consider giving Thunder Wells a listen--narrated by Jonathan Waters!
