The “Gathering of Authors” event held in Bishop Hill, Illinois, has been over for a week now and I’m just getting around to writing about it.
I am so glad that I was invited to this event, and so glad that I attended.
It was definitely a learning experience for me, and it was a great learning experience at that. I met some truly talented and amazing people at Bishop Hill.
There were about 15 authors at Bishop Hill, most of wich attended both days of the event, some that could only attend one of the two days.
Some of the highlights of Bishop Hill include; Hearing Lawrence Santoro read from his current project and picking up his book, “Just North of Nowhere.”
I also met Andrea Jones, author of “Hook and Jill,” which is a novel that takes place in Neverland, after the stories we are all familiar with. Sounds very interesting – check it out here.
And of course, I got to hang out with J. A. Konrath who graciously helped me out and continued to teach me more about publishing and writing. He also introduced me to some people that I may not have met otherwise.
All in all, I had a great time at Bishop Hill and hope to be invited back again next year.
Oh, and the public is invited to this event – as all of us authors would like to have someone other than each other to sell our books to! So plan on coming to Bishop Hill next year and plan on meeting some great people and having a good time!
