National Black Book Festival Pictures

A couple of entries ago, I mentioned that I was on my way to Houston for the National Black Book Festival. Even though I was not as impressed with the event as I'd hoped to be, I still had a great time meeting fans, other writers, and those on the pulse of the writing world.

One of those "pulse people" was the wonderful Marlive Harris of The who provided the snap shots you see here:

My sister and I were sporting our fabulous RELEASE ME t-shirts.

I had the pleasure of sitting next to authors Electa Rome Parks and Christian Fiction author Fon James.

I also met members of several great book clubs in the Houston area. The people of Houston are always so welcoming. They definitely made the trip for me.
