Stories of the Heart-Amanda at the Fair

"Our  State Fair is a great State Fair,
Don't miss it, don't even be late!"~ Rogers & Hammerstein

Of course, I'm talking about the granddaddy--the oldest and largest agricultural and industrial expositions in all of America...
The Iowa State Fair!

Dreams Do Come True--Recapping the first annual Book Lovers Conference 2019 New Orleans!

It's not often you get to see a dream come true unfold right before your eyes.
But it happened this May in the beautiful and historic New Orleans as the city played host to the first annual Booklovers. Con 2019!!

It was great to see old friends and meet new at this more intimate conference that truly brought together authors and readers in a splendid array of  dinners, small events, workshops, and social times, still leaving time to get together and visit!

From the spectacular evening events, the Fantasy & Faery Gathering, the Voodoo Vampire Club, and BLC Book Bash-- there was no end to the wonderful food, music, dancing, books and swag shared!!
