Cartersville, Georgia welcomes the Keeper Books Tour of five bestselling authors from Washington, Illinois
and Georgia who are changing the way authors meet readers. They call it “local touring.”
New York Times bestseller Dianna Love is a Peachtree City resident who didn’t start out as a writer. At one
time, she climbed over a hundred feet in the air on a daily basis to create massive marketing projects for
companies like Coca-Cola. But now she writes thrillers, romance, urban fantasy and young adult fiction.
USA Today bestseller Adrienne Giordano likes to tell people she’s a Jersey girl at heart, but now lives in the
Midwest. She grew up loving to create stories. In fact, as a child, she would craft homemade books complete
with hand drawn covers. Her covers are now professionally created and she writes edgy romantic suspense
and laugh-out-loud funny mysteries in the vein of Janet Evanovich.
USA Today bestseller Mary Buckham learned to get into – and out of – trouble at an early age. With time
came more opportunities such as being detained by Israeli intelligence, strip-searched by a Greek border
patrol while traveling with a priest and sneaking into Laos. Her books range from suspense to her new urban
fantasy series set in different parts of the world.
Award-winning author and Amazon bestseller, Tracey Devlyn, wanted to be the next Dian Fossey and
explore the wilds of Africa, but that was before she met chemistry and calculus and realized a business major,
rather than a scientific degree, might be more up her alley. She now brings the nineteenth century world to
life by weaving mysteries and tales of spies into her romantic historical thrillers.
Amazon bestseller Hildie McQueen has never wanted to sky dive…unless the airplane she’s in is skydiving.
No one is sure why Chopped (the Food Network) is her favorite show when there aren’t even rumors of her
being in a kitchen. To get an idea of what she writes, mix the strange and unusual, then pair that with humor
and there you have it.
What is the Keeper Books Tour? It’s bestselling authors who are going out into communities all over the
country to meet readers where they live, instead of making one downtown event stop in each major city that
isn’t as convenient for the people they want to meet – YOU.
Come out to the Cartersville Public Library at noon on Saturday, September 20, 2014 to meet authors in
a relaxed setting. They’ll read excerpts, share their unusual backgrounds, host a Q&A chat and hold a book
signing where they’ll sign anything but a check.
