Author Tour In Houston

doomsday key

Writer James Rollins of Indiana Jones fame will be on an author tour in Houston to share his take on his books and the charcters his words so magically brings to life. This down to earth author deserves a visit to his website, by all of the fans of the many books he has written.

I enjoyed reading about his crank call to a fellow author during an author road trip. This gives us a look at the real human side of a guy who not only can write, but knows how to pull off a good prank or two.

His latest book is the Doomday Key. I haven't had the priviledge to read it yet, but I'm sure excitement and suspense two themes he weaves so maticulously thru his books, are waiting to be uncovered.

Rolllings author tour in Houston takes him to the downtown Houston public library. The exciting event is open to the public and everyone will enjoy this fantastic Houston event. Sphere: Related Content

Houston author Reshonda Tate Billingsley stops by the central Library this month to chat about her latest book The Devil Is A Lie

Mrs. Tate-Billingsley has been a busy busy lady lately. ReShonda has won numerous awards for her journalism, fiction and poetry writing skills. She is a five-time winner of the National Association of Black Journalists Spirit in the Words competition. Before I forget to mention it, The Devil Is A Lie was listed as a Summer Reads by Ebony Magazine.

Her latest Christian fiction book is one of 16 other books by the prolific author, who Houstonians should remember from Fox 26 News.

In addition to the library stop. ReShonda is part of the Tywebbin virtual blog tour from in July.

Publishers Weekly describes her new novel as a "fast moving, hilarious, slapstick. In it Billingsley main character ponders how doing the right thing gets her in trouble—and yet, somehow, love (and God) provides. "

Amazon Review put this way....

"Nina (the lead character) discerns the real wealth in her heart, not just her bank account -- or risk losing everything -- to find out what matters the most."

The Houston library book events aren't billed as author books signings, so I guess it's more of a meet and greet. Everyone who enjoys Christian fiction should come out to learn what's next for her and other interesting facts about ReShonda one of the best selling Houston writers. Sphere: Related Content
