SJWG Visits Rosemont College

By Marie Gilbert

On Saturday, April 26th, SJWG members Dawn Byrne and myself, along with fellow member and author Jordanna East, headed out to the Rosemont Book Festival at Rosemont College to talk about our writers’ group and to sell books.

Dawn and I were there to promote and hopefully sell the group’s first self-published anthology, Tall Tales and Short Stories from South Jersey and Jordanna was there promoting Blood in the Past, her prelude to the psychological thriller series, Blood for Blood.

The day was sunny with a slight chill in the air and although there were not as many people shopping for books as we expected, we enjoyed speaking with the Rosemont students who stopped at our table. I was surprised at how many students were interested in becoming publishers, editors, or writers.

We chatted with several of the other authors there selling their books and made plans with a group of writers belonging to the Delaware Valley Sisters in Crime chapter to speak at one of our meetings. I even met a Facebook friend, and a steampunk friend from Dorian’s Parlor.

Now that the warm weather is here, we’ll be out and about promoting our books and our group. Check our calendar for other upcoming book signing events.
