The very first thing my pals at The Writer’s Coffee Shop told me about attending the Texas Book Festival was to save room in my luggage for books.
They weren’t kidding!
My weekend in Austin for the Texas Book Festival was full of lots of book promotion, lots of book talk and lots of … well … books! (Confession: My luggage was, in fact, significantly heavier on the way back.)
I had a blast getting to spend time with two of Spotlight‘s fabulous editors and getting to know some of my fellow super-talented TWCS authors. I also had a chance to sign a few books (see above!). And I even got talk with some amazing writers (R.S. Grey – it was a pleasure to meet you!).
If you’re a literature lover and hear about a book festival in your area – make plans to attend! It’s a fun way to indulge your love of books and support local writers.
And for your writers out there who are participating in NaNoWriMo – good luck!!!
