Keeping cool with The Dawnflier of Author @KimHeadlee (June-July 2017) #MFRWOrg #ASMSG

Hello and welcome to the June-July edition of The Dawnflier!

I extend a special welcome to everyone who signed up for my mailing list at the Robin Hood Springtime Festival of North Haven CT, Big Walker Lookout overlooking Wytheville VA, and Wytheville's annual Chautauqua Festival.

Subscribers receive special news and offers. If you are interested, you are welcome to sign up HERE. I send out no more than one newsletter a month.

I've chosen the picture of the hot-air balloons in honor of the Chautauqua Festival and to express a wish I'm sure we all feel from time to time: that we could just hop into a basket and rise above all our issues and concerns, even if only for a day. I'm still up to my eyeballs in the tasks required for settling my dad's estate, so a day aloft in a balloon sounds really appealing about now. :)

I plan to dive back into writing new material in September, so there's not much to report in that department. However, I do have several upcoming personal appearances:

  • 7–9 July: Vendor table in the Maryland Hallway at Shore Leave 39, Hunt Valley Inn, Hunt Valley, MD. Dealers room schedule TBA.
  • 14–16 July: ConGregate 4/DeepSouthCon 55, Radisson Hotel, High Point, NC: program participation TBA.
  • 28–30 July: US 21 Road Market, a 110-mile, multistate yard sale from Wytheville, VA to Harmony, NC. My booth is in the same spot as last year: outside the Lakes to Florida Grill, Rt. 21, Wytheville, VA.
  • 29 July: WyVACon; 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Wytheville Community College, Wytheville, VA. I do plan to sell & sign my books at this event while my husband mans the yard-sale booth. And yes, he has already agreed to that duty. :D

Thank you for your interest in and support of my work!
