Summer Adventures! by Marketing Director/PA Kathy B.

This summer has been a whirlwind and it’s not over yet!  Dragonfly Books has signed new authors including C.A. Sanders and Virginia Dare.  We’ve seen new releases from Starla Hartless, Adam C. Mitchell, and Elizabeth Horton-Newton.  Neil Douglas Newton is re-releasing The Railroad with a new awesome cover by our favorite cover designer, Rachel Bostwick.  New books are coming from Elizabeth Horton-Newton and Adam C. Mitchell.  There is an amazing contest running right now and anyone can enter a manuscript that has not been previously published and the winners will receive a one year contract for that book, including editing, formatting, promos, etc.  The full package.  Of course authors always retain the rights to their books, Dragonfly Books never assumes ownership of any author’s work.

Then there’s the book festivals and signings!  August 1 to 4 we were in Orlando FL at the Indie Book Fest where Elizabeth Horton-Newton appeared on a couple of panels, attended a Fandom event and an afternoon book signing.  She brought along a couple of friends, Ophelia Ostrich and Sadie Sloth who were frequently requested for photo ops.  Elizabeth appeared on a Youtube show called Hanging with the Web and acquired many new fans.

The following Saturday, Sept. 7, they will be at Next Chapter Con in Ringgold GA where Elizabeth will again be on discussion panels.  This event is from       10 AM to 4 PM.  $5 admission.  Children under 12 are free with a paid adult. 

From there we will travel to Pumpkin Palooza at Greenway Park and Pavillion in Cleveland TN.   Dragonfly Books will have a table where we will be selling all our books and some Dragonfly jewelry.  Both Elizabeth Horton-Newton and Neil Douglas Newton will be on hand to sign their books.  Pumpkin Palooza  Sept 28 from 10 AM to 5 PM

We’re not done yet, then its onto Cumming GA for Sweet As A Peach GA Indie Author Event from 1 PM to 5 PM on Saturday, Oct 5th  at Forsyth Conference Center at Lanier Technical College. Elizabeth Horton-Newton will again be there signing her books.
