COFW celebrated my birthday in Ohio Saturday night at Buca's

Yes, today is my birthday and not just any birthday, but my 60th birthday!  60 may not be the new 30, but it’s at least the new 40.  The past 4 years have been filled with all kinds of adventures for me.  I met a lot of my favorite authors, made a ton of new friends, interviewed movie stars, traveled all over the United States and even flew an experimental airplane.  And I know things will only get better.


Finally I can tell you about an exciting new venture I’m undertaking.  SAVE THE DATE!  April 10, 2012 will be the first Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon.  It will be held in the Milwaukee area and feature 38 authors with 7 readers at each table.  There will be free door prizes, raffles (including an acoustic guitar with accessories, a color Nook and more) and a book signing.  New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Heather Graham will be the keynote speaker.  Proceeds from the event will benefit local libraries.


The website to buy tickets will be up on November 1st, so grab your friends and book clubs and plan on a girlfriend day out.  I have dreamed of hosting a Reader Appreciation Day for years, so it’s my present to myself.


In addition, I just received some great news that a story I wrote for Chicken Soup for the Caregivers Soul has been accepted and the book will be out in March.  So, not only will I be at the luncheon, I’ll be able to actually sign books there.  This, I’d have to say, is more than I ever dreamed possible.
