I honestly can’t thank you enough for everything this weekend. I’m pretty sure you’ve spoiled us now for good, since no other event could possibly live up to TBF. From the limos to the marching band to the gold stars, the personalized gifts and wonderful group of volunteers, this weekend was like a dream. My only complaint? That it didn’t last a whole week!! I really can’t say it enough. It was so much fun meeting so many librarians and fans and other authors. Writing can be so solitary, and it’s events like these that make you remember the reasons you do this. So the next time I’m sitting in my pajamas with my hair unbrushed and a blank word document in front of me, I’ll be daydreaming about the adoring fans and lovely volunteers I met up at TBF…
