I had a wonderful time selling books at the Bluemont Fair, an event that I only heard about for the first time about a month ago. This, despite the fact that this is the 53rd annual running of the event and I’ve been living in this general area since 1996. I sold LOTS of books, as did fellow authors Martin Wilsey and S. C. Megale, who shared the booth with me.
So, I’ve been publishing my stories for 6 years now. This is a picture of every publication I’ve been in, from anthologies to my solo books that have been published through Tannhauser Press.
I’ll be a Capclave 2023, our local DC-MD-VA literary SF convention, from Sep 29 – Oct 1. In addition to helping to man the Tannhauser Press table in the Dealer’s Room, I’m participating in two panels, as well as running my “Occupational Hazard” workshop.
I’ll be selling and signing books at the 53rd Annual Bluemont Fair in Bluemont, VA this weekend, Sept 16 – 17, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Come see me! (And besides me and my books, there are all kinds of arts & crafts, fun activities, food…you name it).
Here’s a preview of the wraparound cover for the hardback edition of “Fantastic Detectives.”
So, I’ve been cooking up a little something with the guidance of my fellow author Martin Wilsey. I’m in the process of getting all my published works available as audiobooks, an endeavor I hope to have complete by the end of the year. Of course, everything sounds better if it has a cool codename, so this is…Operation Soundstorm.
The chart shows my sales figures over time (sans dollar amounts, of course). As you can see, 2023 has easily become my best-selling year ever…
It’s HEREeeeeeee! I just got my author copies of the Kickstarter edition of SOLAR FLARE today. It’s always a thrill when you open a package and pull out a copy of an anthology you’re IN.
Come meet David Keener at the Lansdowne Woods Book Fair on June 24, 2023. From 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, there will be workshops on publishing & writing, lunch with the authors, and then book signing (and sales). This is a free event.
My latest story, “Dustbowl Detective,” is appearing in the anthology SOLAR FLARE from renowned editors Patricia Bray and Joshua Palmatier. My story is a futuristic crime story set in a world ravaged by climate change.
