Sistersville Public Library hosts King book signing
Local author Alexander Lloyd King held a sale and signing for his first four books on Jan. 30 at the Sistersville Public Library.
To date, King has published three collections of poetry, as well as one collection of short stories. His books of poetry include: Black Thoughts Burning (2012), Pretty Circles with Sharp Edges (2012), and Where Wolves? Volume One: Duality (2013). His story anthology is titled 13: Beware of the Envoys (2013). Amazon.com is currently selling all of those books.
Local artist Amber Kinney, who designed the covers for Black Thoughts Burning and Pretty Circles with Sharp Edges, was also present to sign her work. Her artistic progress can be found on ajcportfolio.com. Her online fantasy series Jonah and the White can be experienced at jonahandthewhite.com.
At the signing, King and Kinney recited a rendition of “The House Fire,” a poem from Black Thoughts Burning. A recorded version of their reading from 2012 can be found online at youtube.com/watch?v=lPwOZ7PNHtA.
King also read two flash-fiction stories from an upcoming anthology. Half of the proceeds he collected were donated to the library. Residents also made monetary donations specifically to the library.
