Meet author J.D. Peterson at Anaheim Central Library. 

J.D. Peterson Book launch

J.D. Peterson will be signing novels, meeting fans, and sharing the story of how she came to write the AMERICAN GILT trilogy. Based on the true story from the Gilded Age that came to be known as the ‘Belmont-Whiting Scandal’, this is a story that continues to echo through history. The scandal has been buried under 100 years of propaganda and misinformation. Now, you can travel back to the Gilded Age and get a first-hand glimpse into the life and propriety of America’s wealthy social class and the effect it had on one young woman looking for love and happiness in 1880’s gilded age America.

Greetings Local Authors, Local Author Supporters, and Readers!

Celebrate 32 Southern California authors, who are either self-published or published through small press, in a day of education, networking, mingling, readings, and discussion at Anaheim Central Library’s 3rd Annual Indie Author Day on Saturday, October 13, from 1:00-4:30pm, a day in which libraries across the U.S. and Canada will host local events that support independently published authors! The event will kick-off with author readings from 1:00-2:00pm, hosted by participating author Christopher Lentz, in which ten authors will read a sampling of their work to showcase the talent assembled. Following the author readings, from 2:00-2:45pm, attendees will have the opportunity to visit with authors at their tables as well as purchase and have books signed. Following the book fair and signings, from 2:45-3:45pm, attendees will enjoy a panel discussion moderated by Grant Hier, Poet Laureate of Anaheim, and featuring panel members Serdar Aydemir, Frank Barry, Selma Mann, and K.L. Noone, whose works represent a wide cross-section of writing genres and styles.  Following the panel discussion, from 3:45-4:30pm, attendees will have another opportunity to visit with authors at their tables as well as purchase signed books. Attendees will enjoy discovering new favorite indie authors as well as learning about writing, publishing, and book marketing first-hand from published authors.

This event is open to all ages, and no RSVPs are required.  I have attached the event poster (in PDF and JPG formats) for your reference.
