May is Texas Writers Month and there’s a lot of celebrating going on. Texas chapters of Sisters in Crime have been putting on signings, readings, and events. The Heart of Texas chapter hosted the award ceremony for the Barbara Burnet Smith Sage Award (congratulations to the 2011 recipient, Russ Hall).
Another big even going on - this time on the Internet - is literary publicist Stephanie Barko’s month of author interviews and giveaways. For example, some of you may remember a post I did last year telling you about Bob Ray Sander’s great book, Calvin Littlejohn, and his appearance at the Texas Book Festival. Stephanie is giving away a signed hardcover of his photographic documentary book. If you’d like a chance at his book, you can still comment through May 29.
Here’s a list of authors whose books are being given away on Stephanie’s blog:
Joe Nick Patoski
Bob Ray Sanders
Jane Roberts Wood
And if you want more, Stephanie has them. These are the authors whose books will be open for giveaways starting this week:
Barbara Renaud Gonzalez
Laurie Wagner Buyer

That’s an incredible list of great authors. Good luck on winning one of their books!
