The Amelia Island Book Festival was a wonderful event. I’m very excited to be attending the BAM Festival in West Palm Beach, Florida tomorrow. This is my first time attending this festival and I’m sure it will be great. Books, Art, Music-what more can one ask? It will be outside in downtown West Palm Beach, rain or shine!

A Great Weekend
I spent this past weekend at the Sunshine State Book Festival in Gainesville, Florida, organized by the Writers’ Alliance of Gainesville. It was a terrific weekend. It started with a reception for the attending authors on Friday evening, which was delightful. On Saturday, the book festival itself was held on the campus at Santa Fe College. What a terrific venue! The room was full of authors, presenting books in a wide range of genres. There was excellent attendance, with people coming through and browsing all day. It was a great opportunity to meet other authors, as well as the the attendees who came through to check out the books. It was an excellent place to introduce my new novel, A RATIONAL ATTACHMENT. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to attend!
