Hello Everyone

Since you are reading this, I assume that you are a fan of my writing or at least curious. So many have been thoughtful in sending me email and other personal notes regarding my two novels House Call and Points of Origin that I wanted a method to share updates about my writing and book signings or other related information. This narrative marks the premiere of “My Blog” which is linked to the website www.dardennnorth.com and is not intended as a source of medical care information or communication.

Listed elsewhere on this page is a schedule of my upcoming book signings. However, I would like to draw your attention to the Mississippi Picnic scheduled for Saturday, June 2, 2007 in Central Park in New York City. I have graciously been invited by the Delta State University School of Nursing to sign copies of my novels at their tent during the picnic. Please look for us. While a graduate of both the University of Mississippi undergraduate and medical schools, I grew up in Cleveland, Mississippi (the home of Delta State) and have deep ties to DSU and, of course, being an obstetrician/gynecologist have deep ties to nursing as well!

A recurring question asked of me is How do you have time to write novels and deliver babies, too?. Well, I have never enjoyed my ob/gyn practice more than I do now and remain fulltime in the capacity. Budgeting time for writing and all the promotion related to it is indeed challenging but some of us are more obsessive than others, I guess. Anyway, I am hard at work on my third novel (as of yet untitled) --- the tale of a southern socialite whose death under suspicious circumstances triggers a battle over her frozen eggs and embryos. The novel will portray a fictional slant on some real-life medical concepts. I hope that you will watch for it!

Have a great life,

Darden

Was the Experiment a Success?

I recently conducted a little experiment in book marketing, placing an ad on FaceBook promoting the release of my three mystery/medical thriller novels as eBooks. The materials utilized for the experiment were no more than my laptop, a little electricity, a high speed cable Internet connection, and a credit card --- as well as some spare time that I did not have. (Perhaps I should have spent the minutes moving past page 100 of my work–in–progress, a fourth novel tentatively titled Wiggle Room.)

The results of my non-scientific experiment are detailed in this essay and presented in the guise of a blog entry on my author’s website. While it is meant primarily to interest other authors or maybe publishers, I hope the piece is clever enough for my book fans as well. I was intrigued when author Jeffrey Marks recently reported his own experience with advertising on FaceBook, publishing an article and follow-up piece in the Mystery Writers of America newsletter. I decided to see for myself.…

Mystery Author Darden North to Sign Novels at Mississippi Picnic in NYC

____________________________________

Date: 6/5/2010
Time: Noon til Dusk
Location: Central Park East Meadow between 5th Avenue and 97th Street

Darden North will join other native Mississippi authors and artists at the 2010 Mississippi Picnic in Central Park East Meadow in the Mississippi Authors tent. Copies of Norths three novels will be available for purchase and signing.

The New York Mississippi Picnic was started in 1979 as the brainchild of a handful of native Mississippians living in New York City. The group joined together to create an event to highlight Mississippi’s attributes. The first picnic attracted some 500 individuals, and that number has steadily increased over the years; the 2010 picnic is expected to attract more than 2,000 picnic-goers! In addition to the picnic and live music, there will be a Mississippi Authors Tent where mystery and suspense author Darden North and others will have their work available for purchase and autographing.
