I mentioned in this post that I would be attending an author’s rally at my local library. It was an event that gathered many of the local author’s in the area to let us show case our books to the public. It was great for me to finally emerge from my house without the kids and meet with like minded writers. They were all amazingly kind and talented. In fact, the youngest author there was only THIRTEEN years old!! Her dedication at such a tender age is inspiring. Her name is Sydney Dreamweaver and her books can be found on Amazon.
Also attending the event was Amy Clipston!! Some of you may have heard of her already. Her books are top sellers in the Christian genre. She is absolutely the sweetest person, too. She has a book titled, Roadside Assistance, that I really wanted to buy from her that night, but I didn’t bring any cash with me. Total. Bummer.
If you’re a writer who is interested in publishing your children’s book, then you may want to check out, Auntie M Children’s Books Publishing company. “Auntie M” is the mastermind behind this publishing company and she is also the author of, The Sophisticated Slug, shown above. The illustration's are amazing, and her message is uplifting and encouraging for her young audience.
The other two books shown are from author’s Philip R. Morrhouse, originally from New York, and Kevin Winchester, who teaches English at a local college. I also met, Al Bigley, an illustrator and writer of comics. He was nice enough to draw a picture for my son Nathan along with his autograph. Nathan was absolutely beside himself when I gave it to him and gushed about it for two days straight. I wish I would have taken a picture of it, but I forgot. I’m lame. Ha! Anyway, all of them have many books already published and I recommend checking into some of them if you have time!
All in all, I really enjoyed attending this event. I wish I had a chance to meet every author there that night, but there just wasn’t enough time for me to go around to each person. Awe well. Maybe next year?
