Welcome to November’s Update . . .
With one week left in September (where does the time go), the last three months of 2019 are on the rise.
Several big events I’ll be selling at like North Scituate Art Festival, October’s Lively Literati (link coming soon), Rhode Island Comic Con, 7th Annual Rhode Island Author Expo are coming soon.
And let’s not forget NaNoWrimo, my username is rkbentley if you want to add me.
I’m happy to report the book is selling well at the festivals I’ve been going to like Necronomicon, Richmond Fall Festival and in bookstores like Stillwater Books in Pawtucket, RI.
And the mailing list has gotten bigger due to the Book Funnel and Story Origin’s giveaways.
The next step in all this is leaving a review with Goodreads.
If you’re reading this post and if you’ve managed to finish Where Weavers Daire it would be great if you could leave a review. It doesn’t have to be big.
I’d love to put some blurbs from the readers on the back cover of the next book or add them the next time I print copies of Weaver.
Every little bit helps myself as an author.
Thank you for your support.
Work continues on Where Riders Crosleigh.
I’ve updated my appearance page to include Boskone which is this coming weekend where myself, J. Michael Squatrito and Christopher Paniccia will exhibiting in the dealers room at the Association of Rhode Island Authors table.
Boskone is great convention to go to if you’re in the area. It’s more geared towards authors instead of comics and has three days worth of panels to attend.
If you can’t make it to WorldCon then Boskone is a great alternative.
15 Years ago it was a Tuesday.

For those who have read this before, you can skip it. I’m putting the updates above the cut.
Ten years later and it’s a Sunday.
I’ve moved twice. Went back to school. Graduated with a Associates in Multimedia, Web Design from NEIT and still hound the white whale that is my novel in progress.
My brother has moved three times, changed jobs until he found one he liked and is now engaged to get married in January.
Parents are doing fine, my dad is into year two of recovering from surgery to his leg.
Friends have married and begun their litter of ragamuffins.
And, unfortunately, my creative partner of 14 years is no longer with us. I don’t like to say dead even though my mother, the nurse of 30+ years calls a spade a spade. Dead sounds too permanent, if a Brit, a puppet and a emo Jedi can come back as blue haze then so can we. I’d include that quote from The Last Starfighter but there’s enough geek in the paragraph already.
All I know is, tomorrow, I’ll be doing the same thing I was doing ten years ago…
This won’t be much of an update since Irene’s western edge kicked the crap out of the lower East Coast and Vermont while her eastern edge basically passed by Rhode Island.
Saturday we managed to have our Rhody Writers Meet Up at Books on the Square. Since the library was booked, one our newer members found us a lovely place to meet at and I have to say even with the then Cat 2 Hurricane slowly churning up the coast we had 8 people, 6 regulars and 2 new people, 1 even had signed up the night before.
I always enjoy these meet ups because I have no idea what people are going to post. We have the Steampunk / Fantasy , Horror, Sci-Fi, General Fiction and others. So far I have not found any of the pieces in six months boring and many of them come back once they’ve been edited and read better than before. And, if that’s the case, then the group is working.
