I’ll be book-signing Saturday at Printers Row Lit Fest. 10-12 am at the Society of Midland Authors tent and 2:30-4 pm at the Mystery Writers of America tent. No, I don’t have a new book out this year, but if you’re in the area, stop by to say hi. Listen to some of the great speakers. Eat some unhealthy food. Check out the used book stalls. Read more books!
Beginning on June 1st, tai chi classes at Chang’s Academy in Elmhurst will be held Monday and Wednesday mornings at 9 am. May 26th will be our last evening class. Current Chang’s students who are able to transition to the morning class can attend free during the months of June and July.
For directions and pricing contact the school at 630-903-6064.
Here’s a subtle reminder—this Saturday at 1:00 I’ll be signing copies of my novel and short story collection at the Village Crossing Barnes & Noble.
“Big deal,” you say. “If I went to the Orlando Barnes & Noble I could meet Toni Tennille. Besides, I still can’t figure out how to use this damn NOOK.”
Maybe so, but it’s a long drive to Orlando, and if you come to Village Crossing you can meet Nero Wolfe Writer, Robert Goldsborough, check out his latest mystery, and get NOOKified, all at the same time.
Plus, it’s B&N’s Educator Appreciation Day, so all you K-12 teachers can swing by for a little much-needed appreciation.
And, to sweeten the deal, the first ten people to say hello will receive, absolutely free, no purchase necessary, a colorful character bandaid to proudly wear on the skin area of your choice. Impress your friends!
Join me Saturday, April 9th, at the Village Crossing Barnes and Noble on Touhy.
I write about mayhem and killing.
Subjects both nasty and chilling.
But I’m not a bad guy.
I would ‘t harm a fly.
I just like a tale that’s thrilling.
Um, it’s a pear.
The new year is a time when people take stock of their routines. They make (and break) resolutions, many of them having to do with diet and exercise. Come to tai chi class. Flowing Dragon Tai Chi. If tai chi class isn’t an option for you, find another way to stretch and strengthen your muscles and joints. Swimming is a good low impact exercise, and (if you have the right partner) so is dancing. Go outside. Walk. Hug a tree. Hug a person. Whatever you do, I wish you health and happiness in 2016.
