Peggy Fellouris Attends the LA Times Festival for Books 2015
Dear Readers, My recent trip to California for the LA Times Festival for Books was a grand time and bigger and better than ever. With a record breaking 160,000 authors, journalists, press and readers attending this collaborative event I had the pleasure of showcasing my most recent book “3 Boys and a Boat”. During the two day event, I met with numerous people, from a variety of backgrounds, having informative conversations and lunch. Many people, both men and women, strive to become authors, not knowing step one. It was very pleasant helping them get to the right publisher to begin their journey while sharing my experience. Yes, writing is a skill and so is story telling on a page.
In fact, writing is similar to playing Bridge, which I have actively participated in for a long time. Each game allows for new or different plays. With each book, novel, I write I realize how important it is to put the words on paper. Too often we the writer have them in our head, and don’t realize the reader doesn’t know which ones would have been used. Just one or two words can change the meaning the writer plans.
I am thrilled to announce that I will soon have a new book out in circulation. The book is titled “The Man in the Black Cashmere Coat”. It is currently in the layout stage and will soon transition on to the cover stage. That is when I find it most exciting; to actually see the book as a finished product.
I have been overwhelmed with the success of my novel “3 Boys and a Boat” to date. It is my aspiration that my next novel will be enjoyed by as many readers if not more.
Happy reading to all of you!
Dr. Peggy W. Fellouris
