Upcoming Appearance



I’ll be at this event, and even doing a reading from my upcoming novel, “HPD”. Hope to see you there!


Granddaughter Bowling Birthday Party


This past weekend we had a 3rd birthday party for our granddaughter Evie (the little girl with the birthday cake shirt) at a local bowling alley. While there we got a chance to get a group photo taken of many of the members of my family. The lady on my left is my wife Gloria. So here’s a chance for you to see what my family looks like!

Pictures from Library Presentation

On the evening of October 30, I gave a presentation on “Self Publishing Your Work for $0” at the main branch of the Cabell County Public Library in Huntington, WV. Following are a few pictures from it.


The initial audience. More people showed up after this picture was taken and we ended up with 19 attendees. That was a much better crowd than I had expected!

That’s me with my little remote in hand and one of the first slides of the presentation up on the screen. I’m proudly wearing my WV Book Festival shirt. I attended it during the previous weekend and signed books there.


A live action shot after the lights had been dimmed for better viewing of the presentation. By the way, I got to the library 1-1/2 hour early just to make sure there wouldn’t be any technical difficulties with hooking up my computer to their AV gear. Thankfully, I didn’t encounter any problems.


Radio Interview


Here’s a link to my radio interview on WOUB in Athens, OH: https://soundcloud.com/woubdig…/180921-michael-connick-edit…

“In today’s Author’s Chair, Michael Connick discusses his first book Trapped in a Hall of Mirrors: How the Luckiest Man in the World Became a Spy, published in 2016. It’s the first of a trilogy of Cold War spy novels based on his true experiences working with U.S intelligence agencies. Connick, who is from Huntington, WV, will release a new novel this fall based on the Huntington Police Department.”

Upcoming Events / Appearances


On September 21 at 1:00 PM, I’ll be doing a radio interview on WOUB-FM in Athens, OH. Recordings of the interview will be downloadable after the show and I’ll provide links to them as soon as they become available.


On October 30 at 6:00 PM, I’ll be doing a presentation at the Cabell County Public Library, 455 9th St, Huntington, WV. The topic will be “Self-Publishing Your Book for $0”. If you ever thought of writing a book and live in the area, I urge you to attend. More details to follow as they become available.


I’ll be doing two presentations at the West Virginia Writers Fall Conference. This one-day conference is held on November 17 at the Days Inn Conference Center in Flatwoods, WV. My presentations are “Technology for the Technophobe Writer” and “Marketing Your Work on the Cheap”. They’ll be lots of other presentations given and it’s an opportunity to meet other writers, so I hope you’ll be able to make this event. More details on this event will be available at the WV Writers website.
