I had the privilege last weekend to speak and sign books at the Southern Festival of Books, a three-day “celebration of the written word” held in Nashville, and the oldest book festival in the United States. It was so much fun meeting and talking with other authors, publishing executives—and especially readers. If you’re a writer, you’re a reader first. It’s how we all fell in love with the written word.

I’m also excited to be signing books at three upcoming events—two this weekend. I hope, if you’re in the neighborhood, you’ll come by for a visit. I’d love to talk “books” with you!
