I woke up on Saturday thinking I was going to karate, but noooo. I heard about the Dahlonega Literary Festival and I just had to go. We got there at about 11:20 and we walked around looking at publishers and authors. Then we had lunch (very good pizza by the way!). I loved listening to the authors speak after lunch. They were very interesting. I even got my book signed by Janice Hardy, the author of The Healing Wars Series (ten and up). Here is the link to her website: www.janicehardy.com.  After I read it I will do a review. I also met Amber Evans (she wrote The Wrath- 14+). The man in the picture is Mark Braught. He did the original illustrations for Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone! I am hoping that he will donate a piece of his work for a contest/giveaway-I will keep you posted on that. He and his wife, Laura Knorr (also a famous illustrator), did a cool portrait demonstration. Robyn Hood Black did an interesting presentation on wolves. Thank you to all of the wonderful authors, illustrators, and publishers that I met today! I had a great time! 😀
