Donate Supplies for Little Free Libraries

Write by the Rails, the Prince William Chapter of the Virginia Writers Club, of which I am a member, is proud to announce that we will be building several (perhaps as many as ten) small free library cases within the area. But we need your help.

We need screws, nails, pallets or wood, plywood, trim, paint, shingles, plexiglas, etc. If you have any of these items and would like to donate, please tell us what you have to donate in the comments section of this blog post and contact Belinda Miller at

Thank you!

Bull Run Observer Covers Local Author Fair

Thank you to the Bull Run Observer for writing a piece on the May 23 Author Fair at the Bull Run Library in Manassas. Observer writer Heidi Baumstark spent several minutes with many authors, including myself, and included details about our work in her article. Below are images of the paper taken by writer Kathy Moya.

People Who Need To Die is mentioned in the bottom two paragraphs on the left.

Manassas First Friday Catches on Big Time (6/4/2015)

The overcast weather didn't dampen the spirits of hundreds of town seekers who came out this first Friday of June 2015 to enjoy good eats and good treats. I was skeptical about First Friday ever taking off -- I've sat outside and sold books on a couple and it didn't seem to be much different than any other Friday--but it's obvious now that word has gotten out! And it's just what the city needed.

Tonight there were musicians, artisans, authors (Belinda Miller, Carol Covin, Dan Verner, and Nancy Kyme), period actors, and just a lot of folks having fun. Cornhole tournaments and chalk drawing contests filled Center Street. Several shops had free cookies and drinks to entice patrons.  And tomorrow, June 6, is the Railway Festival, which is sure to draw more people into Old Town. I'll be signing my books in front of Prospero's from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. Enjoy these pictures from tonight, and we'll see you on the next First Friday, July 3, one day before Independence Day! Vic
