UPDATE / BREAKING NEWS For those of you who'd rather leave the reading to others, an AUDIO version of After The Dance will soon be available. Yes, that's right--I'm talking CDs, cassettes and via download. Is that cool or what? (smile)

BOOK CLUB MEMBERS For those of you interested in a deeper discount, the book will soon be available through the Black Expressions Book Club. Visit their site for details.

Also, if your book club meets in any of the following areas: Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Durham, Memphis or Cleveland and your members plan to read and discuss the book, please let me know. I'm opening to attending/participating in discussions of the book in person, by arrangement and at no expense to your club OR via teleconference if you live outside of those areas.

REVIEWS Comments about the book have been wonderful, thus far (smile). You'll find links to a few of the reviews in this blog's upper, right hand corner. A couple of the reviews also appear in the novel's listing on Amazon. Feel free to add your own impressions of the novel in Amazon's comment section.


Look for me in
Memphis on Saturday April 12th, 2008
11:00 - 1:00 at Barnes & Noble Booksellers (6385 Winchester Blvd) **open to the public**

3:00 - 5:00 at Davis-Kidd Booksellers--Bronte Bistro (387 Perkins Road Ext) **invitation only**

I'll post details of my other signings as we move closer to those dates.

LAST WORDS Buy the book y'all or check it out from the library. If you enjoy it, share it with a friend. If you hate it, pass it along to one of your enemies. Either way it goes, I appreciate the support (smile).

Hey Lori,

I got my book today (well actually yesterday)! I started reading and it's so interesting that I think I will read it before I mail it to you for signing. I wish I was in Michigan because I would definitely get down there to see you in Cleveland. It would be nice to meet the author in person.

Anyhow, I like the way you encouraged book clubs to read and discuss the book and the inclusion of the discussion questions that guide and direct the conversation. I am impressed. Good luck to you, this is only the beginning.

Thanks PJ,
You're too kind (smile). Who knows, I may put your area on the list of places to visit next year. I do have a brother who lives in the Oklahoma City area and a niece who lives in Texas.
I'll keep you posted.

I really do appreciate the support!
