Can It Get Any Busier?

Mar 05, 2024 by E. Joe Brown

     Since my return from the book launch tour for the second novel in the Kelly Can Saga - "A Cowboy's Fortune," I've been about as busy as a person should ever be. Now I'm not complaining (well, maybe a little bit), but I would welcome a down day or a week. I know it hasn't been a month since "A Cowboy's Fortune" was launched, but I've already written about 70,000 words in the next book in the Kelly Can Saga. I had a fair amount of work already completed on the story, but I've enjoyed a period of creativity over the past month, and that's been wonderful.

     While the writing has been very productive, I've also been busy with the business and marketing side of being a published author. I was on Rendezvous With A Writer on February 15th. That’s the very successful internet show hosted by Jim and Bobbi Bell on LA Talk Radio. I was honored to be on it for the second time.

     I did an Open Mic night at Books on the Bosque bookstore in Albuquerque on February 16th. It's a very nice place and joins an already excellent set of bookstores in the Albuquerque metro. Over the past few weeks, I've solidified several things I'll be part of. I'll be in Tombstone, AZ, for the Tombstone Festival of Western Books on March 8th.

     The following two days I'll be at the Tucson Festival of Books. I'm thrilled to be part of a group of my fellow Western Writers of America members at these two events. Please come and enjoy those days with us if you're in the area. I'm honored and excited to be at Treasure House Book Store on the Plaza at Old Town Albuquerque the following weekend. Thank you, John Sofsis, for allowing me to be part of the group of local writers featured at your store. I'll be there on March 15th from 1:30 to 3:30, and I look forward to seeing you then.

     Later this year, in June, I'll be in Tulsa, OK, for the Western Writers of America annual convention. I'll be setting up other book signings around that date. I'll share more as I firm those events up. Please let me know if you have a bookstore, library, historical society, or any venue that makes sense for me to come and share Charlie and Susan's story. You can reach me through my website. Well, I had better end this here. I had considered sharing a little of what's coming in book three (the working title is "A Cowboy's Dream"), but that will come in a future blog.

Happy Trails,
