Frederick Book Festival
This past Saturday all the girls here on Coffee Books Life had the opportunity to meet and greet with a bunch of authors at the Frederick book festival. Panels, prizes, authors, swag and some wine made this event one of the best free events in the area. The day started by getting a tote bag with swag and a schedule with panels hosted by various authors. In a ballroom area all the authors had tables where we could get autographs, pick up swag, buy their books, or just talk about anything and everything.
Some of the authors included: Vivi Dumas, Melissa Schroeder, Mary Behre, PJ Schnyder, Eliza Knight, Loni Lynne, Elisabeth Staab, etc. The list goes on and on.
Our girls went to some panels including: Romance mash-up- how most books fall under more than one category of genre and how an author promotes a book that doesn’t fall into one place.
Blogger panel- Hosted by Joyfully reviewed; we asked questions to make this blog the best it can be.
Romancing the Hero with wine and chocolate- Ok…to be honest the wine and chocolate was for us but we had a great time naming some of our favorite heroes and what it means to be a heroic character.
Overall, it was a tiring but amazing day and we got lots of signed goodies that we are giving away to one lucky reader! WHOOT!
We have a Frederick Book Festival tote bag signed by almost all the romance/paranormal authors in attendance! They include Melissa Schroeder, PJ Schnyder, Vivi Dumas, Eliza Knight, Loni Lynne, Elisabeth Staab, Jean Murray, Cat Miller, Rachel Rawlings, Lynne Silver, Tee Morris, Philippa Ballantine and many more. A Santinis poster signed by Mel! And see that basket of goodies, that is included as well! A lot of the swag is signed! This is a pretty good load if I do say so!
