Author’s Luncheon-Interesting andFun

author lucnhI don’t know if you’ve ever been to an “Author’s Luncheon” where you actually get a chance to sit with authors and talk to them, and hear about their books–and get to ask them all sorts of questions…but if you haven’t, you don’t know what you are missing.

Yesterday was a fabulous day. Had lunch, literally, with seven authors. They were such down to earth and interesting people. It’s one thing for someone to tell you they read the book and liked it…that normally makes you want to buy it, right? But let me tell you, sitting at the same table with an author, gives you this up close and personal connection.

I got to meet and talk with Merle Temple, Steve Bradshaw, Marie Moore, Londa Hayden, Rob Sangster, Lisa Turner and Frank Tuttle. To tell you it was fun, is an understatement.

They were delightful and after meeting them and hearing how they came to write the particular book or the genre; talk about the characters and settings really brought the books alive.

The venue was at a museum in Collierville, TN called Morton Museum.

If you ever get a chance to go and have lunch with an author, be sure and do that, it is well worth your time.

Tomorrow will introduce you to the authors.
