A Handful of Hopefuls



For A to Z 2015 I'm

ALL ABOUT THAT PLACE

I'll be highlighting Blogger Friends' places
and
I'll be giving Advice about Book Events!


HOORAY and HOW do you do? HARK to these Bloggers who are HANDS down HEARTILY HAILED!

HEATHER M GARDNER - Let me emphasize HER title - the Waiting is the HARDEST Part. We've been buddies for the longest and we're in it for the long HAUL! HEATHER is not only HILARIOUS, but she has a sidekick gnome named Stormy who HELPS with her posts and HAS a wisecracking sense of HUMOR as well!


HEATHER HOLDEN This chick has HONED her craft. She's a HIDDEN talent, so creative! And her comic, Echo Effect, is quite a HOOT! It stars "an antisocial stutterer and a popular pretty boy" - HOW can you resist that combination!?


HILARY MELTON-BUTCHER - I love this elegant lady and her HONEST HOMEGROWN tales that weave HISTORY and culture into beautiful escapades. Her personality shines like HONEY throughout and she HEAPS on the details - HEAVENLY renditions! 


HOW about we talk Book Events HERE and now!

An optimist and a pessimist will view anything in two totally different ways. My advice is that no matter HOW big or small the event, no matter HOW many books you sell, no matter HOW HARD it was to find or HOW much you paid to be there...

Find the HAPPY!!

And another way to get the most out of an event is to pump up the HOOPLA! Advertise, give some shout outs on social media, tell your friends and fam who live near the event. I've even put free ads in the local paper - doesn't HURT to ask!
