2013 Author's Fair

This weekend, I participated in the Third Annual That Book Place Author's Fair in Madison, Indiana. What a wonderful time I had. It was so great getting to see old friends and meeting new ones, not to mention I sold a bunch of books.


I shared a table with Molly Daniels (middle) and Kayelle McClive (left). I think we were the only romance authors at the fair, but not positive.

The Author's Fair actually started the night before with Filk music and then discussion panels. I sat on the "So You Want to be a Writer" panel. The audience had some great questions. 

The threat of rain was imminent at the beginning of the day, but it held off and we had mostly cloudy skies all day. I think the most exciting part of the day was when the wind decided that we didn't need to be under a tent and blew it up and over the tables behind us, landing on the other side of the parking lot. Needless to say, it was very windy. For everyone's safety, most of the tents were taken down after that.

Frank and Kim Hall, owners of That Book Place, and their staff were wonderful and took very good care of us all day, always coming around to see if we needed anything. They also made sure we were well fed too. The turnout was great and my guess is that hundreds of people attended.

I can't wait until it all happens again next year.

  1. Minus the wind, please. We want mid-60's, sunshine, and NO WIND! And yes, I do believe the three of us, plus Jan Scarborough and Maddie James were the only romance authors there.
