July Kicks Off a Busy Schedule

Let’s celebrate Independence Day 2021 with added emphasis!

A growing calendar of live events begins July 3rd

I imagine many of you are already headed outdoors again and many enjoying or looking forward to an upcoming summer vacation like me and my wife. We’ve been fully vaccinated since the first week in March, but have remained close to home for the most part. But, that’s changing quickly this summer. Here’s is my author schedule of events and appearances for July, and August and beyond is booking up fast for the rest of 2021…

July 3rd, Saturday – Great Barbecue, book talk, and lots more at Moreland’s Independence Day Celebration

Bumping elbows with the likes of Lewis Grizzard and Erskine Caldwell, and a bunch of other current author friends!

HNN Writers Group will have three gatherings in July. A virtual Writers Workshop on July 10; A Writers Virtual WIP Critique Group, July 12th at 6:30-8:00 PM hosted by Angie Gallion Lovell (if you want a sneak preview of my new historical novel, join us.

July 31st, Saturday afternoon 1-3 PM in Lagrange, GA

T.M. Brown will be speaking at Pretty Good Books on Saturday, July 31st about the latest book in his Shiloh Mystery Series. T. M. Brown is an award-winning Southern author from Newnan, GA. In the first two books of his Shiloh Mystery Series, he has introduced Theo & Liddy Phillips as they settle into their new hometown of Shiloh, Georgia amidst shadows of the town’s past. In Purgatory, A Progeny’s Quest the final book in the series, Theo faces a life-threatening decision to save his friends. In telling of all three stories, T. M. Brown has interwoven thought-provoking messages about making decisions in times of crisis and change. 

Come see Pretty Good Books’ new downtown Lagrange location! It’ll be the envy of booksellers throughout the South.

Phew! And August and beyond stacking up to being just as busy!

Hint: Connie and I will be touring Fernandina Beach with a weekend of book signing at The Book Loft, August 13-15, and then we will be spending a week touring and talking with folks about my new novel up the Georgia coast with a few days in Darien, GA to celebrate our 48th Anniversary too!

Shiloh Mystery Series: Purgatory Book Launch Events

Book Launch Author Events

(follow the above link to my @T.M.BrownAuthor Facebook page for more specifics on any particular event)

In light of recent events caused by the unexpected health crisis–aka coronavirus–we all have had to adjust to the canceling of many March, April, May, and even other future planned events. I remain hopeful that the stringent and unprecedented actions by government officials will enable all of us to return to a renewed business-as-usual status as we enter the summer. As soon as we get a handle on this COVID “bugaboo”, I will update my schedule of events as it is revised with venues reopening for pubpic engagement again. You can also watch for additional virtual promo videos regarding my third and final book in the Shiloh Mystery–Purgatory, A Progeny’s Quest.

Watch for news about all the Shiloh Mystery books published through Heartstone Press (Southern Fried Karma, LLC).

Books offer an escape we all need–a reminder of what life could and should be like–and, I pray folks will enjoy Theo’s stories about Shiloh handling and coping with challenges and threats to their community in that light.

God bless. Stay safe, and trust that life will return to business as usual soon. Our sacrifices today will save lives and expedite our recovery.
