I had such a great weekend! The book festival went well, and I sold a good number of books, made new connections, and met some wonderful readers and authors. It never gets old talking about books, does it? One reader and I were discussing how our golfer hubbies can recall what they shot on a certain hole a decade ago, and how crazy that is. But if you ask a reader about a well-loved book they read years ago, many of them can quote lines and tell you the page it came from – guess it’s not so different.
Here are some pics of my new banner and table setup. We had cramped quarters. Unbeknownst to the organizer, the hotel underwent some renovations and had cut the size of the ballroom by half, but it all worked out in the end. And my table mate never showed, so I was able to spread out.
Hubby and I also saw my oldest son and his girlfriend – always a good time. After the book fest, I went to Comic-Con with them at Rupp Arena. I was in nerd heaven! Some of the costumes were so elaborate and well done – just amazing. I rode the elevator with Star Wars characters, saw Ghostbusters, Star-Lord, Captain Jack Sparrow – the list goes on. I also caught a glimpse of Mark-Paul Gosselaar from The Passage. I’m hoping since he still has the beard, they’re already filming the second season – keeping my fingers crossed. If you’re a fan of The Office (which I am), here’s a shot of Creed. I wasn’t able to get pics of Leslie David Baker (Stanley), Kate Flannery (Meredith), or Oscar Nunez (Oscar), but it was fun to see them.
Happy reading and writing this week!
