Sonoma Book Festival 2011 – The Recap

Great seeing everyone at the festival! Hope to see you again. Here are some pictures from the event.

Laurel Anne Hill, Ann Wilkes, Emerian Rich

There were tons of authors there. More main stream and non-fiction authors than I’ve ever seen congregated in one place. We had an awesome time meeting new fans and old. We also had a beautiful place to read from. Our Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading set was as follows:

Emerian Rich (that’s me!). I read a portion of Night’s Knights. For all you fans of NK, it was the part when Markham is killed by coach robbers and Severina saves him.  It was the only section I could fit a complete scene into the 5 minute allowed time and still be PG. This was something new for me. I’m usually asked to read longer and read the steamy bits!  This was also the first time I’ve ever read outside. Quite an experience… but a nice one!  It’s wasn’t too hot, so no fear of melting under the horrible rays of the sun!
