JDP NEWS update, March 17, 2008


Congratulations to
Melissa Keith of Rhode Island for winning my medieval research with joyce Research Book Drawing. Her prize is a hardback copy of Medieval Wordbook by Madeleine Pelner Cosman. Have fun researching, Melissa! I hope you enjoy your prize.

I posted a new website drawing today. Prizes?
To find out, go to my website, look at my News & Contest page, and follow the instructions there.

I updated my medieval research with joyce blog on Thursday, March
6th, with a post titled, “What’s for Dinner?” In this post, I share information from one of my favorite books on medieval meals, Fabulous Feasts by Madeleine Pelner Cosman. (Interestingly, the same author who wrote Medieval Wordbook!) If you’re interested in this subject, check it out.

BOOK SIGNINGS: I’ve been invited to sign copies of my medieval novel, Loyalty’s Web, during the last weekend of the Arizona Renaissance Festival. The signing will take place from 2:00-3:00 PM at Lady Ann Chamberlin’s Bookshop (booth 309A). For location directions, go to Royal Faires. (And while you're there, browse the entire site. It's fun!)

Finally, I’m off to Utah next week to attend the Storymakers Writers Conference, whe
re Loyalty’s Web is a finalist for a Whitney Award. Winners will be announced at an awards gala on Saturday night, March 22nd, so wish me luck! I’ll see you all when I get back.
