I met the owners, Tc and Nessa Mckinney, in person (finally!) this past weekend. (center two in photo) They had traveled from Alabama to attend the Second Annual "Novel" Wine Tasting Arts and Literary Festival. Our Marketing Director and fellow author Greta King had also traveled up here for the festival.

They try their hardest to make all of their authors feel like family! Friday evening Greta treated us to bowling and pizza. (BEST Pizza ever!!) Later we sat out on the porch in our PJ's and laughed and joked till the wee hours of the morning.
Saturday we got down to business and sold some books at the festival! We tag teamed taking pictures when someone would come up to one of our tables. We even helped sell eachother's books.
|Me-before changing into my costume, setting up my tables|

Besides my books, I had brought some brain teaser games for my table that many people really enjoyed. A few stopped by for almost an hour- one girl ALMOST beat the hardest puzzle! Later her mom came over to try the puzzle and even bought a copy of Wiggle Worm's Shape Adventures ;)

before he packed his stuff for the day
As the sun went down we helped eachother pack up our stuff and take down the tents.
Then we went over to join all the other authors at the after party. I won't give you a blow by blow because "What happens at the after party STAYS at the after party." But, no one said anything about not sharing the evidence!
|I havn't the foggiest what I was laughing at here|
|Had to catch a picture with my good friend C.D. Bonner|
Before today I had only ever talked with him online
and in Where Writers And Authors Meet lol
|Jack- doing one of his impressions lol|
This event is scheduled to be part of the book tour for the release of Visionary From The Stars and The Alien Mind
Ah! Now I really wish I could have made it out, but alas, it wasn't in the stars. *shakes head* The Rivi costume looks AWESOME! And it looks like you had tons of fun. Congrats!ReplyDelete
No worries Skye! I'll be there next year too ;) I also have some Sci Fi conventions I will be attending in NC so we may meet up soon anyhow *hugs*ReplyDelete
Thank you! I'm glad you like the costume- I was SUPER self-conscious walking out of the bathroom after changing, but no one batted an eyelid so apparently I fit right in lololol.
