Authorfest 2015

This weekend was incredible.  I was thrilled to be able to participate in the second annual Authorfest in one of my favorite small towns, Denison, Texas.  As a writer, I believe that words are all powerful, but as a photographer, I believe that pictures are worth at least a thousand words.  So here they are.

First, some scenic shots of Downtown Denison.

Preparing for dinner and a reading at Devoli’s!  It also happens to be part of my favorite winery, Homestead.

Usually, I prefer red wine, but this Orange Muscat may have converted me.

That night, there was another raffle drawing.  I swear to y’all, I have the BEST luck at these things.

And, of course, there were plenty of books to go around.

I also got to meet the cutest puppy ever.

And I spent all the money I earned on wine and new old books including a lot of vintage Stephen King and an old copy of In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.

  1. Congratulations! I have read In Cold Blood long ago and it is pretty good. I love the puppy. Cute puppy. It looks like a lot of fun at the bookstore. Anyway, I have bought your novel Boy Band. I can’t wait to read it! I enjoy all of your books. They are fun to read!!! 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Raul! It’s gotten some mixed reviews, so I’m anxious to hear what you’ll think of it! And I’m looking forward to reading In Cold Blood. It’s been on my list for a while now. 🙂
