It has been some time since I have been able to get off the road long enough to write a blog for this site. It is my pleasure and delight to tell you about our most recent journey – a highly successful book tour related to promoting my latest publication, An Elevated View: Colorado Writers on Writing.
This book is a collection of twelve incredible essays by some of the finest writers to call Colorado their home. I have compiled and edited four or five of these kinds of books. All were enjoyable in more ways than I can describe, but this one was the most fulfilling and satisfying. Much if this had to do with all of the fine writers involved. They included David Mason (Poet Laureate of Colorado), Mara Purl (author, publisher, actress, musician). Susan Tweit, Joe Stone, Larry Meredith, Mark and Kym Todd, Margaret Coel, Mario Acevedo, Laurie Wagner Buyer, Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, Kathy Brandt, and Dan Guenther. This is one of the most impressive line-ups of writing talent anywhere.
Most of the contributors to An Elevated View showed up at the readings and signings at Denver’s Tattered Cover, Woodland Park’s library, Salida’s The Book Haven, and at Western State College in Gunnison. The event at The Book Haven was catered, a local vintner provided wine, and David Tipton, an accomplished musician, supplied the entertainment. The crowds at all of the venues were great, response was tremendous, and everyone wants us back.
Not only are the contributors to AEV some of the best writers in Colorado, but they are some of the nicest people.
An Elevated View: Colorado Writers on Writing is enjoyable reading for anyone interested in writing, in books, or in learning something about these talented and remarkable authors.
