An adventurous Bostonian woman finds love and intrigue
on the plains of the American frontier in 1896. A plucky lady
musketeer saves her queen by swashbuckling her way through 17th century
France. Two detectives from the newly formed Las Vegas Metropolitan
Police Department, while investigating a string of burglaries in 1976,
pose as fences to buy evidence directly from criminals which piques the
interest of the District Attorney's office and the FBI. The authors on
our panel know a thing or two about spinning history into their stories
to draw in the reader.
Check out the mini workshops on a variety of topics including "Writing Articles For Magazines, Newspapers, and The Web," "How To Get Your Book On Oprah," "Avoiding Publishing Scams" and more.
Find out how libraries and bookstores obtain their vast array of books and how to choose the right publisher for you. Book sales and signings, live entertainment, food and beverages available.
Local author and teacher Kat Jaske will give a presentation and will have a table displaying her books from 11am - 1pm. Books are available at discount.
My editor (and mom, Donna Ortgiesen Jaske) will
entertain by reading from the new book, Righting Time and telling
a little about the stories and books. Righting Time is not due
out until July 6, 2007, but she will have copies of the book at this presentation
for you to buy. You will be the first to be able to get them.

What would you do if you were a time traveler and you made a terrible mistake?
What if that mistake is destroying your own history and your only hope is to convince 17th-century musketeers to travel forward in time and set events right?
What if Jala really is from the future and the fate of her future does depend on convincing Laurel and the seventeenth-century musketeers of that truth?
1639 in the time of King Louis XIII of France. There is absolutely no
doubt in Laurel's mind ---Laurel, the secret leader of France's spy network---that
he would plunge France into another devastating war when he learns Queen
Anne has been kidnapped.
Kat Jaske and instructor Frank Van Dyke of the Red Rock Fencing Center in Las Vegas.
Fencers love the books For Honor and Gambit.
