Papillion Book Fair 2023

I had a great time at the Papillion Book Fair in Papillion, Nebraska. It was my first author event, so I had no real expectations. I had my nose to the grindstone trying to complete “Until We Sleep” so I could offer it at my table. Between that and getting supplies for the event, there was no time to worry. Turns out, there was no need to.

The day started with a gully-washing rain and thunderstorm that went directly over us—lightning, booming thunder … I really couldn’t have asked for a better entrance. My fellow authors and I took shelter until the rain passed. It finished just in time for us to get set up before the fair began. It was well-attended. I had a constant stream of people passing by. I made some sales, signed some autographs, and enjoyed talking about books and stories. So many people came by that I couldn’t leave my table. So, I didn’t get a chance to go around and meet some of the other authors.

Here are some photos. Thanks to everyone who came out and bought books and said hello!
