On Sunday, March 30, 2016 I spent an afternoon with a group of authors in celebration of Women's Month. This intimate gathering took place at an art studio called Art and Frame in Falls Church, Virginia. The food was catered and was very delicious (sandwiches, shrimp cocktail, a variety of cheeses, strawberries and Sangria) - now who could ask for anything more.
Anyway, while jazz music was playing in the background (courtesy of one of the authors husband and her sons - one of whom played a few pieces for the audience during the event), the guests milled around looking at our display of books. After they got their refreshments, they settled in for a treat of each of us introducing ourselves and then reading a snippet from our books.
At the end of our readings, one of the guests commented that we were so diverse that they were very intrigued. Our genres ranged included children's books, christian fiction, contemporary women's fiction and romantic suspense - so, yes they hit the nail on the head. Then we opened up the floor to a discussion about publishing, marketing, attending conferences, etc.
We had a BLAST! And it was great networking with such lovely ladies who ROCK! Here are some photos from the event...enjoy!
