As promised, I’m back to tell you a little bit about the NOLA conference!
First of all, the New Orleans convention center was over a mile (yes, I said ONE MILE) long. Second, it was packed with people from the front to the back, and all in-between. There were readers, writers, authors, editors and librarians running around everywhere.
Most authors whose books were debuting soon got the opportunity to autograph copies for the swarming fans, but my book was still in the F&G (fold and gather) form. I stood at Lee and Low’s booth and answered a few questions, but I also took the time to wander about and meet some of the other publishers.
For example, since I penned three books for Rosen Publishing (Getting a Job in the Food Industry; Getting the Most Out of MOOC; and The Right Medical Degree for Me), I found Rosen’s booth and introduced myself.
Next, I found Cavendish Square’s booth and introduced myself as the writer who had penned the educational book called Playwriting. I never located the publisher called The History Press, which published my very first title, African Americans of Chattanooga. HOWEVER, I definitely made my way to Random House Book’s booth, where I introduced myself as the writer whose picture book, The Oldest Student, would debut sometime in 2019.
In case you’ve forgotten, Hammering For Freedom debuts on September 25, 2018. You can preorder by clicking the Amazon link to the left.
