Call for Boston-area writers!
« on: June 04, 2012, 07:06 AM »
I'm moving into a new position over at Boston.com, for a new parenting blog we're creating. I'll be in charge of daily listing of events in the greater Boston area, and naturally I'd like to be able to include as many writer events as I can! If you are having a launch party, a signing, or anything else in the area (Massachusetts and southern NH are probably the scope of our readership), send me a PM and I'll try to get it in.

 :)

Glad you did, since I missed it! I don't have anything coming up, but just wanted to suggest that you check out and/or join the Boston Area Entourage, if you're interested. It's a facebook group of some local authors and bloggers, and its purpose is to  post about book events in the Boston area. http://www.facebook.com/groups/BostonEntourage/

Ooh, I didn't know about the Entourage group; I'm in Boston, so I just requested to join.

Congrats on the Boston.com position, Jenna!

Today, a writing friend sent me a link to Amitha Knight's blog- she is a local author who keeps close track of all author events in the Boston area and posts the schedule on her blog. Here's the link: http://www.amithaknight.com/boskidlit-author-events/

Have fun with the blog--looking forward to checking it out!

Hi Jen,

I'm going to be having a Halloween celebration on Saturday, October 27th at 3.00pm at Willow Books & Cafe in Acton, Mass (I hope that counts as being in the Boston area!) I'll be reading and signing from The Power of Poppy Pendle, my middle grade novel, and there will be Poppy's special chocolate melt-aways and caramel crunch cookies to nibble on!  It should be fun, and I'd love to be listed on your page! 

Thanks, Natasha

Bumpity-bump!

Authors in the Boston area, please let me know via a PM if you have an event coming up -- I work about a week out, just so you know. (Which means, if you send me something today for a launch party in January, your email will probably get buried....).

Here's a link to the boston.com blog where I'm the Events Editor:

Looking forward to hearing about your happenings (and hopefully attending a few, too)!
