We spent last Saturday at the Payson Book Festival. It was a very well-run event. The organizers and volunteers were awesome and we had a good time meeting new readers and getting to know some new Arizona authors, as well.
As usual with an author, a Story Monster lurked nearby. 😉
I also got a chance to say hello to this guy:
Went for a walkabout town, took in the views and generally relaxed.
Then stayed in the Victorian Rose room at the Mile High Inn upstairs from the grill.
Next week, I am in Los Angeles, attending the SCBWI Summer Conference. I’ll be listening to and learning from some amazing authors there and plan to come back reinvigorated and recommitted to the writing.
Also, in August you can catch me teaching (and co-presenting) craft and marketing workshops in Mesa, Sedona and Tucson. Check out my upcoming appearances here: http://sharonskinner.com/author-tour/
