Small Business Saturday Nov. 26

Remember to visit your favorite independent bookstore on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday (Nov. 25 -26). My favorite is This Old Book in Grayslake, Illinois. Visit Friday for 25% off of all books, maps, and artwork. On Saturday they’re giving away two totes filled with specially selected books: one for children and one for adults. Visit their website at

While you might expect to find books for sale at a hair salon, Edison the Christmas Elf and the Imperfect Perfect Toy as well as Vanished! will be available at Dianna’s Salon & Spa (310 West Rollins, Round Lake, Illinois) as they celebrate Small Business Saturday. Visit Dianna’s website:

Authorfest 2016

Mark your calendars for July 30 for Authorfest 2016. Meet more than 25 local authors (including me) at the Round Lake Area Community Center from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. The event will have author readings, music, activities, food vendors, and more. I’ll post updates on my Facebook author page and my website. Janet Elliot, owner of This Old Book in Grayslake, is the co-chair of the event. You can find more information on the festival by visiting Facebook @authorfest.
