Book Festivals- From An Author’s POV

It’s hard being an author in public. Dang hard. You have to talk without cue cards. Smile through the pain, the hunger, and the awkwardness. Make jokes, possibly. And the worst part–you’re supposed to sell books!

But it’s worth it.

Here’s a blog post from one of my most trusted beta-readers and fellow Sci-fi YA author, Ethan A. Cooper (What Happened On My Space Vacation– my review is here), about his first experience at a book festival–the preparations, the excitement, and the lessons learned. He was lucky enough to have some awesome companionship, his 10-year-old daughter, Lily, author of The Journey.
