I’m Going to the Texas Book Festival!!
It’s official! I’m a featured author at the 2018 Texas Book Festival, and I can’t be more honored and excited.
I’ve been going to the Texas Book Festival for years, getting inspired as I listen to authors talking about their craft and books. It’s hard to believe that this year, I’ll be one of them, talking about THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST and more, and hopefully inspiring future authors.
Last night I attended the Author Reveal party at an absolutely beautiful house in Austin. Have a look at the entrance in the picture to the right…
Nice, huh? There were peacocks in the driveway. I don’t think I need to say anything else… 🙂
Of course, the best part of being in the Texas Book Festival is the other authors who will be there with me. The full list is huge, and you can see it here, but I’ve got a few of my personal highlights:
