QVCC Booksigning

The first booksigning of my writing career took place April 1st at Quinnebaug Valley Community College on the Danielson Campus. It was a wonderful time and Kelley and I sold almost twenty copies of Swords of the Six

Erin Pagano is pictured above with me. She spearheaded this event and I credit her with its success. Thanks Erin!

I also met a group of college students who are weapons enthusiasts. Below I am talking with Frank (holding his sword). We discussed possibly doing a booksigning event jointly while they do one of their swordfighting shows.

Scott, I happened across your blog tonight and have to say I am quite intrigued. My 18 yr old daughter is very into fantasy and I think she would like your books. My business partner is a librarian. I will be passing on your site address. I wish you great success.
On a side note, I must say that you have been "surfed". Drop on by my blog to see what that means. ~verna

I love good fantasy! Thank you so much! Are they appropriate books for a fifteen-year-old? Because I don't want to buy a book and then not be able to read it. :)
I'm writing a Biblical Fantasy! I am 126 pages into the first book (It is a trilogy called "The Journey" - at least until I think of a better one).
Namarie!

Absolutely age appropriate for a 15-year-old! This is a Christian Fantasy series. It is not allegory, it is just an adventure tale. But I've had readers as young as 15 so far... I'm sure there'll be some younger ones, too.

The Bible =D

The Hobbit
Dragons in our Midst

The Archives of Anthropos
The Door Within
Hangman's Curse

A book-signing/sword-fighting event would be so cool! LOL! No rusted crystal swords, though..hehe.

Wish I lived closer and could actually come to some of your events. Maybe one day....

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.
