We had an awesome time at the SW Florida Writers Showcase yesterday! Authors Christopher Cobb, Michael Warriner, and Antonio Simon Jr. were in top form, greeting fans and having fun! There we met friends old and new, such as fellow author Charles Cornell and a mystery jester lady who was kind enough to pose for photos! Thanks to everyone who came out to see us, and a big thank-you to the organizers of this fantastic event!
UPDATE: We've been informed that the BookFest has been temporarily postponed as the venue was damaged in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. We will keep you posted as to when and where the BookFest will be held.
