What I Learned This Week – 9/20/15

Last weekend I went to the Kerrytown Bookfest for the very first time. It was the 13th year that the festival has been held.

Why was it my first time?

Because a year ago I didn’t even know that it existed. And while I don’t live in Ann Arbor where it is held, I did work there for many years for a big box bookstore, may it rest in peace.

Heck, I didn’t even know book festivals like this existed at all a year ago. Boy, do I still have a lot to learn go as a new author!

Anyway, I bought way too many items there and decided to show them off to you.

I also got to chat with some of the coolest authors, such as Andy Lockwood, Kimberly J. Fuller, and Bethany Neal. I met author M.G. Buehrlen. Unfortunately, she was sold out of books by the time I got there (it must be really good). Instead, I purchased her calming essenital oil, appropriately named “Tiny Bottle of Calm: Let’s Calm the Eff Down, Ppl”. I am happy to try this oil in my never-ending search for something to help manage my anxiety. And a product you can use when you actually feel the anxiety as it begins to creep over your body? That seems very useful.

Although my son had to stay home sick, I was able to win him some super sweet swag. Here is a pic of him showing off his new book and T-shirt featuring Perla Garcia and the Mystery of La Llorona, “The Weeping Woman”.
