LISTEN UP READERS!!! Have I got your attention? I want to take a moment to invite you to come down to Cannon Beach, Oregon for the weekend of April 13-15! It is the first annual GET LIT AT THE BEACH reader & writer festival. It will feature me, Elizabeth George, Susan Wiggs and Jamie Ford – a diverse, but entertaining foursome – sitting down with you to talk about books and writing and author weirdness. Details on the event are below, so you can look and see if it appeals. I think it’s going to be great fun. We are only expecting a hundred people, and this means plenty of face time with all the authors to talk about how much we all love books and why. Here is more information about it:

This particular lineup is rare in a small group situation; if it works, we will try it again with different authors next year. But I don’t think you should wait on chance and next year. Do you? Oh, by the way, big movie news coming up. I will announce it at the Get Lit Weekend. Always there for you, Terry

Will this become an annual event by any chance?
