Party: Book Party for Maria V. Snyder

Parties We made it out east to Maytown, PA, for the Poison Study party yesterday, and it was so worth it. Maria rented this neat little place called The Barn that had a great room with a fireplace (not burning of course as it was 91), a kitchenette, and a sitting area. Upstairs was the kids' area and apparently several stuffed bears. I never made it up there myself, but Jason was impressed. Outside there was a sitting area around a water garden and some beautiful landscaping. We met many of her friends, family, (Her kids are adorable!) and writers from her group. One writer in particular we talked to most of the time, Steven Klotz. He and J discussed being mainstream and slipstreaming between genres. I talked about my sucky short stories. I was impressed with the reviews she's received so far. She had them posted for us to read. (Great idea! I'm going to use that one later.) And, I have a copy of the book already. :) I'm going to write a review for Amazon and
