Kentucky Book Fair 2008

>> Monday, November 17, 2008

Saturday I journeyed to the land of Lincoln (he was born in Kentucky in a log cabin he built with his own bare hands) for the Kentucky Book Fair. Held annually in Frankfort, the one-day book fair features more than 150 authors and routinely draws 4,000-5,000 readers from all over the region.

They really pack the authors in, often three to a table, and by mid-day the aisles were so crowded you could hardly move. I sold a bunch of books, and got to talk about all my novels with a lot of families.

See? There I am talking. You can tell because my mouth is open and pizza is not going into it. The book fair was a long drive for me--almost fourteen hours, round-trip--but Wendi came along and we had a fun trip. My thanks to the organizers, and to all the readers who came out on a cold and blustery November day!

Well, I'm jealous. Nothing like that happens out here. Seems like back East there's always some interesting book festival to go to.

Well, at least I've got nice weather (60's today!)
