We Want What We Want!

For A to Z 2015 I'm

ALL ABOUT THAT PLACE

I'll be highlighting Blogger Friends' Places
and
I'll be giving Book Event Tips


WAIT no longer for WONDERFUL Bloggers!

WEAVING A TALE - Donna Weaver is WAY cool. She's sweet and funny and a hard WORKER. She keeps me grounded WHEN I'm WEARY.


WAVY LINES - Laura Marcella has fallen by the WAYSIDE, and that happens sometimes in this WACKY life. But I always enjoyed her WORDS of WISDOM WEEKLY quotes!


WISTFUL NEBULAE - WHAT can I say about Mary Pax? Mary, Mary quite extraordinary! How does your garden grow? WITH stars and planets and WISTFUL magic - and speculative fiction books in a row!


CR WARD - Carol has been a long-time blog friend. I WAS fortunate to read one of her first elemental series on her blog as she WROTE it WEEKLY - an intense, magical, romanciful journey!


And here WE be with Book Event Tips (WITH bonus pictures from my latest on Saturday!)

WHAT better time to WRITE or WHIP up a new idea for a WIP, than WHEN you're sitting at your table WAITING for the next surge of readers!

Bring paper or a device to WRITE down your ideas. My latest table partner came up WITH a great new story idea based on the patronage. I know he's do WELL WITH it!

Sometimes I sketch out scenes or WRITE poetry WHILE I WAIT.

WATCHING others interact can give an author the break she might need to WORK through a block or spark a new WIP.

A WRITER WRITES everywhere! Be ready for the WEAPON of opportunity to strike and tame it!

And WE WOWED the readers at the Ohioana Book Festival! There were so many visitors, I barely had time to run across the hall and say HI to Julie! Stupendous turnout! And my presentation at the kids' corner was awesome as WELL! I just WISH I had felt better to go to the after party - rain and cold made me WANT to curl up in bed, so I did. Oh WELL, I'll definitely be there again next year!
my half of the table =)

I got to meet THE Margaret Haddix! 
She was at the table next to me!
A cute pixie!
My photo props were a huge hit!
got to meet fellow CQ author Vicki Leigh!

How awesome to meet fellow authors. That makes a book signing even better.

That's awesome! I'm so glad Ohioana book festival went so well. I hope you're feeling better now.

Isn't that the truth! I write every where I go. I write on my phone, pad of paper, napkin and when I don't have anything to write on, I say the perfect line or thought over and over until I can write it down:)

M. Pax has a great blog. I love her posts on the ghosts towns she finds. The pictures are beautiful.

Looks like lots of fun at the book festival. I'm planning on being part of one in October if things work out.

Great bloggers here today, Tara! And I loved your pictures from the festival. Your poster was huge and I'll bet an eye catcher.

These book festivals mean so much to me as a fan. When you meet the author up close. its like Wow, I'm meeting the creator!

Cheers Hilary

I love all the cute photos of you at your booth! too cute! Also, I shamelessly write everywhere, including lunches and breaks at work. They think I'm crazy. They are not incorrect.
