On Friday, August 17th, I had the privilege of being the “spotlight author” at the monthly Open Mic Night at Broxton’s Coffee in Sierra Vista, AZ, sponsored by the Cochise Community Creative Writing Celebration. During my time in the spotlight, I talked about how my books, The Eternity Plague and Chrysalis, came to be, read the full opening scene from The Eternity Plague and a condensed version of the opening scene from Chrysalis, and then answered questions from the audience. The first half-hour or so of the event (all of my portion) was broadcast on Facebook Live too.
If you’d like to watch the video, you have three choices. The shortest version contains only my part of the event. It runs just over 21 minutes.
The medium length version includes organizer Beth Orozco’s opening comments. It runs a bit over 26 minutes.
The full-length version also includes coffee shop owner George Broxton’s comments at the beginning. It runs 29 and 1/2 minutes. This version is also available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/RossBLampert.author/videos/481383622327870.
