I have a special place in my heart for this event and organization--The Life of Bud won Best Children's Book for 2010 at the NTBF. This year, like in 2010, Ashley was able to stop in and sit with me during the dinner and listen to the guest speakers (she attends the University of North Texas in Denton). But, back in 2010, I was a newbie author, who had 1 book to my name, knew no one at the event, and was just trying to navigate my way in the crazy world of being an author. This year, I was introducing new authors to others at the event, trying to help others market their books, knew many of the people there, and was very comfortable talking about my books (which I now have 4!) ... which made me realize that in 5 years of being published, I have come a long way and am enjoying every minute of it!
Enjoy the following pictures taken during the 2013 North Texas Book Festival.
