Photos from Decatur Book Fest!



Oh, my! I have to say, I am so glad I went to the Decatur Book Festival. It was a bit overwhelming but completely worth it. I met so many amazing people I would never have seen otherwise and had a great time. I admit that I was totally star-struck when I met Michelle Zink, Jackson Pearce, Robin Benway, Lisa Klein, and Nancy Werlin. They were super nice and I really hope I didn't make too much of a fool of myself. (Being the little bumpkin I am!) ;)

Anyway, I promised you all some pictures so here they are!! :) I strongly encourage you to check out the authors' websites and publications. They're all awesome!


One of my writing idols, Michelle Zink!
