I had a great time at the 2011 Troy Book Lover's Festival this past weekend. Sold some books, met some great readers along with some pretty darn awesome writers.
Sue, owner of Around About Books (see picture top right of Sue and me), hosted the event and did a wonderful job. Friday evening and all day Saturday were filled with events, from a Spring Hat Contest and drawings for gift baskets, to discussion panels and book signings. And of course, there was plenty of good food and great conversation about books, stories, reading, writing and authors.
I was honored to be one of the panel authors discussing SF/Fantasy and Horror with attendees.
I'll post here about some of the writers I met over the next week or so and the panel on publishing presented by three small press owners (as time permits). I'll definitely be attending the Book Lover's Festival next year--and whether you're a reader or writer--or both, you should plan on it too!
