Library Appearance

My first public appearance (as a writer) is coming up fast. January 17th I will be at the Canterbury Public Library to inform people of my writing and to encourage aspiring writers.

I'm honestly feeling a bit nervous because I've never been strong in front of a lot of people. My thoughts tend to fly out the windows! But I'll have to get used to it and the librarian is advertising it in the Norwich Bulletin so I will have to be prepared for a decent sized group.

I do hope it's only a few... it would be a much easier break in to public speaking!

That is very exciting Scott. We'll be praying for you. I'm sure you'll do fine. :)

I'll be praying too (as I always do). I'm very, very proud of you, Scott, and impressed with your diligence. (This is only the 2nd blog I've ever visited and the only one I've left a comment on. You should feel privileged.)
Love, Mom

Today is January 17th, and on viewing your first appearance I must admit myself to being very impressed as well as inspired. I have found you story, from what I have heard, to be very fascinating and I plan on purchasing a copy when released. I must dub your first public display to be a five star rating *****. I hope to see further interviews and public displays in the future as well as enjoy another conversation.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
