Book Reading Today at Because Coffee

Cliff Berkowitz / Tuesday, June 28 @ 8:05 a.m. / Literature

This morning I had the pleasure of talking to up-and-coming author Kendra Namednil. For the record, I have known Kendra Lindemann since she was a little girl. It is always exciting to kids you've known grow into amazing adults. If you haven't noticed, Kendra's nom de plume is the reverse of Lindemann, minus the extra N.

In the years since I have know her, Kendra has become quite an accomplished writer. She has written many books. Her current series called "A Vow Unbroken." It will eventually be a 12 book series. She has currently written 8 of the 12 and is currently writing 9 & 10 concurrently. This series is in the fantasy genre leaning on the darker side. The first book in group will soon be released called "Borehole Bizarre." 

Kendra is releasing this book though Inkshares.com. Inkshares is a unique publisher designed for the independent author. You can pre-order either an ebook or hardcopy on the website. Once the pre orders reach 250 it will be published. FYI, Kendra is well on her way to that magic number.

To help her get there quicker she is having a book reading today, 4pm at "Because Coffee," 300 F Street, Eureka. At the event she will be giving out gifts to those who pre-order at the event, plus there will also be a free raffle for some of these goodies as well. Gifts include a hand-painted mug coffee mug, etched glass cocoa mug, and hand painted coaster All pictured above.

I Got To Burn One In At The Crabs

Cliff Berkowitz / Monday, June 20 @ 7:43 a.m. / Sports

On Sunday (Father's Day), I got to throw out the first pitch at the 2pm game at the Arcata Ballpark. It's the first time I have ever done anything like that so I was really honored. It was a blast! I think the radar gun clocked my pitch at 98 mph. Of course that all could have been in my mind, but that is how I will remember it! Photos courtesy of Matt Filar.
