I’m pleased to say that November’s book presentation on BLOODY LIES in #Appleton, #Wisconsin at the downtown public library certainly is leading to bigger and better things in 2015.
Shortly afterward, I was invited to give one of the presentations during the week-long Fox Cities Book Festival right here in the Fox Valley where I happen to live.
During the third week of April, I am slated to give my presentation at the Kimberly (WIS) Public Library. The library staff pushed to bring me there, so I am hopeful they can attract a strong crowd of avid readers of non-fiction, true-crime, suspense and mystery fanatics.
“Ferak’s book festival presentation will include high quality photos taken at the farmhouse where the murders occurred. “My presentation also includes video from the interrogations of various murder suspects and defendants. The crimes were really committed by a pair of Wisconsin teenagers who were traveling in a stolen truck bearing Wisconsin plates. None of the photos in my presentation show the actual dead bodies; however, we did publish three such black and white photos in the book,” he explains.
About the Fox Cities Book Festival: “The mission of the Fox Cities Book Festival is to connect writers with their readers and readers with those who write the books they read. Held in a variety of venues throughout the Fox Cities communities and coinciding with National Library Week and National Poetry Month, the Festival brings noted national, state and local authors to share their works through readings, panels, workshops, school programs and conversations, raising their appreciation for one another and the pure joy of reading.”
On an unexpected note of late: BLOODY LIES was named as one of seven finalists for the 2014 True-Crime Book of the Year Award given by Foreword Reviews: https://indiefab.forewordreviews.com/finalists/2014/true-crime/ The winner will be announced in late June in San Francisco.
On another high note: my second true-crime book, DIXIE’S LAST STAND, should be out in paperback via #WildBluePress in advance of the Fox Cities Book Festival. DIXIE has done remarkably well since WildBluePress first released it as an eBook on #Amazon #Kindle in January.
