Find out where to meet Elaine. Sometimes she’s signing books, other times presenting information on publishing.

Thanks to COVID, there hasn’t been much to do in person the last two years. Time to make up for lost time!

Upcoming Activities

Chatham (IL) Local Author Fair

May 14, 2022

1 – 3 PM

Chatham Public Library

600 E. Spruce Street

Later in the Year

I am hopeful that two planned events can take place.

At the Prime Crime Festival at the Columbia Club in Indianapolis (October 28-30, 2022), I’ll be on panels and selling/autographing books. More info later.

For five years, the Book Bums met in West Liberty, Iowa in early November. This small (free) conference and author signing didn’t meet in 2020 or 2021, but we have had some Zoom keep-in-touch sessions. I’ll post more info when the 2022 dates are set.
