Knights, Camera, Action! – Jeri Westerson Launches TROUBLED BONES

Filed under: Uncategorized — ashedit @ 6:20 pm

Imperial Knights joust in the courtyard of Vroman's Bookstore, Saturday, October 15th in Pasadena, CA. CRISPIN GUEST, the red knight, is the recurring hero of Jeri's medieval noir series.

Jeri (center) and her readers watch the joust.

Crispin, played by DEREK JOHNSTON, hurls an insult at the blue knight.

Repast! Mead, bubbly, sweets, fine meats and cheeses tended by Mr. Craig Westerson and family. Antique armor and weaponry decorate the table.

Not a seat to be had when Jeri took the podium to read.

Connie Kalter of Vroman's explains how readers are selected for events at the store. A literary landmark, Vroman's hosts over 400 events per year..

Jeri and her knights. Left, Daniel Doran, right, Derek Johnston. Both knights are from The Imperial Knights theatrical troupe. Jeri had words of praise for publisher Minotaur Books and warned, "I have the next manuscript ready to go!"

  5. Thanks Laughing wolf, I think you would have enjoyed it too. Drew, unfortunately I didn’t get to use the new camera kit on these photos or the knights would have been sharper. I’m working on it, thanks to you. Jeri, you put on quite a show. It’s impressive how many readers showed up to support you. I think Vroman’s and Minotaur should make a “how-to” video for authors demonstrating this is the way to throw a reading.

  6. Thanks, Elaine. I like to put on a show. Of course, the books lend themselves to a certain level of theatricality. It’s definitely launched!

  8. I guess that’s the way Jeri sees it, Charles. Cool idea, huh?
