Over the last two weekends, I have been running around to different parts of the country. I had the privilege of meeting and talking to well known and bestselling author, Charlaine Harris. I also talked to some authors that are not as well known, but I am looking forward to reading their books.
For all those readers out there, book festivals are the greatest place to meet authors. Some participate in the festival by reading or talking about the art of writing. Others will be in the vender section. But no matter which venue you find them, it is fantastic leaning how they conceived the idea for their books.
For new authors this is a great place to meet readers and to network with so many of your fellow authors. It is also a great place to get your own work to the public.
Tomorrow I am going to have Patricia Lane telling us how she came up with the idea of the world. I met Patricia at the Arkansas Literary Festival. She writes fantasy and developed a world all her own. Come by tomorrow and find out how.
