The annual Portland book festival will take a hiatus in 2014 to return to a new location in 2015. Traditionally the Woodstock festival has been a fall event held at the Portland Exposition Hall, but will move to Portland State University in the spring of 2015.
I have a goodly stock of books available for Christmas gift giving. The new book, PLAYHOUSE PHANTOM, is yours, signed (by the author), sealed (gift-wrapped if you like) and delivered (includes postage and handling) for just $12. Same for MARSH MONSTER and VOODOO VIRUS for $10! Or any two books for $22.
Better yet, get the trio (all three books) for $25 postpaid. A great gift idea for the reader on your list and you don't even have to leave your home for Black Friday.
Order before December 10, to assure delivery in time for Christmas. firstname.lastname@example.org
I may be appearing for the selling and signing of my books at Gramma’s Bazaar on November 16 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. in the CLC Gym at Vancouver First Church of God. (I'm on the waiting list and may not know until an hour before, but plan to show up anyway--it's one of the best holiday bazaars around.)
Shop from over 100 vendor tables featuring one of a kind, hand crafted items, holiday gifts (including books), and homemade treats! For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, contact the Church Office.
I am not a huge fan of best-selling author Ted Dekker. I know many people are. And I, too, can appreciate his writing genius, however, I’m just not much into the kinds of things he writes. I’ve read a few and I have some minor problems with some of his theology. That’s okay, I don’t have a corner on all the right doctrine. His books are powerfully written and have touched millions.
That said, I know many of you will be interested in seeing him and having your Dekker books signed. He is making a rare appearance this week in Vancouver—one of just eighteen city stops on tour; the first time he’s done such a thing in fifteen years! [It must be nice to write and just have your books sell themselves.] He rarely does this sort of thing, so it should be a treat for fans.
But, he claims this event isn’t about him; it’s about YOU. The “Who Said Your Light was Little?” event not only promotes his new book OUTLAW, but he will also share his never-before-told life journey. He will be speaking and signing at Living Hope Church (2711 NE Andresen Rd., Vancouver, Wash.), 6:30 p.m., Thursday, November 14. The event is free.
Dekker, known as “the master of suspense,” is the award-winning author of 30 novels with more than 10 million copies sold world-wide. A more detailed story about the tour can be found in the November issue of Christian News Northwest and tour information (and a chance to win prizes) can be found at www.theoutlawtour.com.
Phil Silver and I will be at Vancouver's Best Christmas Bazaar tomorrow, Saturday, November 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with books to sell and sign. Time to buy books for those young readers on your Christmas list. Come on out and see us (and a whole lot more)!
Mention this post and you can have all three of my Bayou Boys books for $20.
The bazaar is at the Clark County Christian Center, 5411 E Mill Plain Blvd ~ Suite 22 and is hosted by Maplewood Neighborhood Association.
