The Twin Cities Book Festival drew a strong crowd of book enthusiasts to the Minnesota State Fair Grounds on Oct. 13. Both the RMA Publicity and Sigma's Bookshelf tables had a steady stream of visitors all day long.
At the RMA Publicity table, I answered questions about publicity, while several of the authors I work with sold books. Meantime, over at the Sigma's Bookshelf table, seven of our teen authors staffed the table throughout the day. They got great support from the crowd, selling more than 20 books total. Not bad for a day's work!

The launch event for University of Minnesota teaching specialist Maureen Aitken's book, The Patron Saint of Lost Girls, took place at Common Good Books in St. Paul on Oct. 6.
The book is already getting a lot of attention in the literary world. The Star Tribune newspaper's review begins with the words, "There are more than a few moments of reckoning in this fine collection of linked stories." In her review for Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan says, "Maureen Aitken has produced a masterpiece highly recommended not only for fans of literary fiction (and most deserving of being the Nilsen Prize for a First Novel Winner), but for anyone seeking a winning, accessible and compelling portrait of growing up female in Detroit in an era where everything familiar is changing."

A new publishing company that will exclusively publish the work of people with disabilities has just been launched by Belo Cipriani. Belo is the national spokesperson for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and a professional writing tutor at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul.
The evening of Oct. 2, the school sponsored the event, "Disability Matters: An Evening of Stories By People with Disabilities” to help kick off the company, and officially release its first book: the anthology, Firsts: Coming of Age Stories by People with Disabilities. More than 70 people from the community attended the event, which was part literary salon, part panel discussion, and served as a venue to discuss disability issues.
RMA Publicity secured several stories previewing the launch. Here are links to the stories in the Pioneer Press, MN Sun Sailor, Lavender, About Magazine, Gay Star Loves and the Highland Villager. Learn more at OLEBBooks.com.
