Work, Romance, and Vampires – This Weekend at Bookstacks

Noon – Book Trivia: Working for a Living

This week’s quiz should be easy – What did Sherlock Holmes do for a living?  What did Jane Eyre do for a living?  Most book characters have to earn their crust somehow, but I don’t think Simeon will make the questions as easy as that.  Come along to the Quiz on Saturday at noon to find out and you could win 500L for the most correct answers.  Dress to suit the theme and you could win 500L for best costume as well.

2:00 p.m. – Author Reading: Mark W. Worthen

Science Fiction and Horror writer Mark W. Worthen (nitewanderer Webwyre in SL) will be reading some of his works at the Bookstacks Pub on Saturday at 2:00. Worthen’s works are featured in several anthologies including Thicker than Water and Thinner than Mist. (nitewanderer started a group in SL titled “Writers of Dark Fantasy and Horror” – seach in-world and join!)


11:00 a.m. – Booklover’s Sunday Social

Join us as we ask our standard question – What are you reading?

Soul of a Highlander1:00 p.m. – Off the Shelf: Guests Melissa Mayhue, Elaine Levine, and Tiffany James

Mayhue, Levine, and James are all romance writers. Mayhue writes a popular series featuring Highlanders. Levine’s second book is about to be published. And James’ first book has been accepted for publication. While these three women are at different stages in their careers, they are part of a supportive writing community. Join us as we talk with them about their writing and about how they are using Second Life to further that community.
