An Author’s Experience at the 2011 AJC-Decatur Book Festival!


I had a fantastic three days at the 2011 AJC-Decatur Festival  Labor Day
weekend . I met fellow PWP authors Omegia Keys and Tiffany A. Flowers , on
Saturday, at the Passionate Writer Publishing Booth on Ponce de Leon in front of
Starbucks in Decatur, Georgia.

Fantastic award-winning author Kane had a wonderful booth as he sold
many, many copies of his novel, “Aleron”. He did a wonderful job with the
presentation at the Local Prose Stage at Twains on late Saturday afternoon.

When I went to the authors reception room I had the opportunity to
meet a legend in Dr. Elizabeth Nunez.  She is currently a professor of Creative
Writing at Hunter College in Manhattan. We had a great conversation and then I
listened to her presentation on her new book “Boundaries”. She is an incredible
speaker!

On Friday at the AJC-Decatur Book Festival Writer’s Workshops, I
attended a session on “Writing Vivid Characters: Details, Dimension and Drive by
Jame Lough who teaches at the Savannah College of Art in Savannah, Georgia. It
was really informatiive,

It was a inspiritational and rewarding  weekend to network and meet some
fantastic authors like Jeffery Wells, “The Atlanta Ripper”, and legendary author
Clyde Edgerton, New York Times Best Selling author Mary Kay Andrews and
fantastic author Wendy Wax.

I  spoke on Saturday at the “Local Prose Stage” at Twains in Decatur
about my National Award Winning novel Ghost of Atlanta. The novel was a 2011
Readers Favorite Gold Winner beating out 80 books in the Fiction-General
category.

It was a fantastic literary weekend and with God’s Blessing I will have
many more!
