It was amazing to everyone to who stopped by. For the readers who came to the table to let me know you'd read the book--thank you for the encouragement. It means so much. And to everyone who took a chance on a new book by a new author, I hope you enjoy the story and I'd love to hear from you as well. And for those of you who stopped by to talk about breaking into writing, I'm always happy to talk shop with other writers. So glad you came by to visit.
I have to say thank you to the artists who were in the neighboring booths all weekend, because they made a very new and very nervous rookie attendee feel very much a part of the community. I have worked in a lot of different creative industries, and I've never seen something quite like the warmth and openness of the veteran writers and artists I met this weekend.
On that note, my eyes are actually blurring as I write this, so I'm going to go crash for the night... and get my butt back into gear finishing up the first draft of the sequel. If all goes according to plan, Indestructibles Book 2 will have a first draft within the next week or so. Then comes the rewrites and edits phase...
