Where I have been
I met Philip Gulley at Book Expo. He is so warm and F(f)riendly. AND I got his new book. It seems that Sam got "released" from his Friends Meeting in Harmony for standing in for the Unitarian minister for awhile. I can't wait to read that one.
I think I will avoid BookCon in the future. It WAS awesome. John Green spoke and the crowd waiting for him acted like they were waiting to see the Beatles - except most of them only have a vague notion of who the Beatles were.
Another thing about Book Con that was wonderful was the HUGE number - HUGE! - of younger readers on the floor. What a great marketing idea! Give your best now-and-potential customers access to their favorite authors? Feed the future, publisher-folk.
So, maybe? I might change my mind about BookCon. The energy was amazing. However, the Saturday crowd is always bigger. The lines to meet authors were extremely long. And I left my schedule of events on the BUS!!! I will write my must-see events on my skin next time.
Well, I just remembered that I have MUCH to do today and time is fugit-ing.
Be well. Read.
