  1. Hi Kathy, these festivals sound great!

    Another to add to your list is the Morristown Festival of Books, now in its third year. This year, the festival will feature nearly 40 fiction and non fiction authors, including best-selling kid lit authors Nick Bruel and R.L. Stine.

    The festival will take place in Morristown, NJ, on Friday, September 30, and Saturday, October 30. For more info, go to http://morristownbooks.org/#/ms-1/1

  3. Melissa,

    How did I miss you. I apologize. You know how much I like you. Thanks for pointing it out. I added you.

    I’m running a writer’s retreat or else I would be there to talk and see you.
