Then, of course, there is the convention's crowning moment: the Royal Palm Literary Award Banquet, on the evening of October 25th. Earlier this year we were pleased to learn that Mr. Simon's book was chosen as an award finalist. That's an accomplishment in itself for a first novel. Wish him luck on October 25th.
November's shaping up to be a big month too. Negotiations are underway with a local university to host Mr. Simon for an author meet and greet. He's also been invited to give a presentation before a book club. More details on those later.
