This weeks photo challenge correlated fabulously with a post I had planned for My Indie Adventures.
As a few of you may know I attended the East Texas Bookfest this past Saturday. What you may not know is that it was my first. Of course I marched up in there like an old
crow pro because I refuse to be intimidated.
The event started Friday evening with a reception for the authors at the Potpourri House in Tyler. I had a glass of Chardonnay with a little fruit, cheese and artichoke dip. The chicken and meat balls looked very appealing but I’m pretty sure I would have choked on them so I had another glass of wine when my handler wasn’t looking. The dip was delicious by the way.
Saturday morning we arrived on time (yay!!) and within minutes our table was set up.
With all of that out of the way (thank you Kim) I’m like what am I supposed to do now?
Thank goodness I just happen to have a camera hanging around my neck so I roamed around taking pictures.
Maybe taking pictures was not exactly what I was supposed to be doing and I probably shouldn’t have let people think I was with the press… Oh well it was another funtastic indie adventure and a chance to see the inside working of a book festival.

These photos were great! I’ve never heard of a bookfest but it sounds like a lot of fun!
Thank you Katie. There are book festivals going on all over the US in September and October. If there is one near you you should check it out so if you get invited as an author you’ll know what to expect. 🙂 The 2013 Library of Congress National Book Festival is this coming Saturday & Sunday, September 21-22 in DC.
