Today I'm going to talk to you about one of my favorite aspects of the conference in 2007, which will be there again next month: the book table.

If you're anything like most writers I know, you LOVE to read. (and I've been told SEVERAL times that one of the best ways to improve your writing is to read) There nothing quite like reading a great book, is there? And who doesn't need books to improve their craft? Or, maybe you've written a book, or have a piece in an anthology that you'd love to sell to other writers.

So, be sure to head on over to the conference book table and check out all the wonderful offerings there, many by or featuring writers attending the conference itself!

In addition to a good selection of the Faithwriters' anthologies, (which include winners of past writing challenges) the much-anticipated book from Amy Michelle Wiley's Peculiar People Books, Delivered, is expected to make its debut there. Featuring more than two dozen authors (including yours truly!), this story of intrigue and hope is sure to keep you reading from beginning to end.

I guarantee there will be AT LEAST one book there (probably more!) that will strike your fancy - and you may even be able to get it autographed in person!

OH - and if you're attending the conference and have written a book (or contributed to one) that you would like to have available at the book table, just fill out this simple form and get it off in the mail. And what a great reason to attend in the first place!

So, be sure to stop by the book table while you're there (and say hi--I'll be working there, just like last time). You won't be disappointed.

So...are you coming? I sure hope so!

  1. I'm with you. Our national library conference featured an exhibit hall filled with book displays and author signings and author talks. Hours of fun.

    I'm green with envy. The weather's probably nice (cooler) up there too. LOL Have a wonderful time.


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
