This year’s Iowa Author Fest is to be held August 6th, 11am to 3pm, at Jasper Winery, 2400 George Flagg Parkway, Des Moines, Iowa. There will be limited space this year, so first come first served, sorry. Cost $40.00 per author, includes table and chair. I was planning on increasing the number of authors each year but because of downtown construction and cost we changed the venue for this year. Also we will have a room to hold fifteen minute readings for about sixteen (16) authors during our time at Jasper Winery. This will be first come first served also.

Depending on the number of books you have published, you may have to share a space with another author.

I have set up another e-mail address strictly for Iowa Author Fest and I will keep this email, B2013k@outlook.com , open for my use.

New Iowa Author Fest e-mail will be: IaAuFe@outlook.com

Thank you for participating in one or both previous two events. I look forward to seeing again this year.

Thank you

Larry Stumbo and associates.

Re-release of The Perfect Witness

Posted on Updated on

3d The Perfect Witness Hurrah! I have finally finished the revamping of ‘The Perfect Witness’. I had found enough editing mistakes in the first edition of my first three novels in my DeBois Series to warrant pulling them off sale. I had them re-edited and new cover designs made. I was hoping to launch the three novels together, however this has not turned out to be the case. The Perfect Witness is now available at https://www.createspace.com/5605004 and should be available on Amazon.com along with Ebook formats in all formats except for Apple because they do not like having Bold font in the body of the story. So I do not know if the time and energy to would be worth the redoing the just for Apple. Unless I hear from a very large group of Apple users wanting my novels formatted in the Apple format I am going to call it a finished item. When you buy one of my novels, after you finish it please leave a review either on Amazon.com or Goodreads.com. Every review is important to the author in the sales standards for their novel. The more reviews, the more exposure the author receives from Amazon when someone searches for a novel in their genre. Do not be afraid of the word review. It only means give a comment on how well you liked the novel and if you would recommend it to your friends.
