Alabama Book Festival 2017

Apr 27, 2017 | Latest News | 4 comments

Southern Yellow Pine Publishing participated at the Alabama Book Festival on April 22, 2017. I was there with two other SYP authors, Pat Stanford and Ken Johnson.

I had a great time on a gorgeous day meeting cartoon characters, costumed authors, and droves of folks strolling the aisles at the festival.  Four different venues featured a variety of author readings, workshops, and activities.  We were fortunate to have a booth just steps away from the main speaking area and the shortcut to the food court, so there was plenty of foot traffic our way.

It was tough smelling that fine BBQ from the food truck all day.  I could not resist the roasted corn and enjoyed a piping hot ear! They also had a gourmet popsicle truck.  I couldn’t resist that, either.

The highlight of the day (aside from schmoozing up to Clifford the Big Red Dog) was getting to visit with my son, who attends a nearby college.  He brought chicken fingers!  Things slowed down considerably once game time arrived.  The annual University of Alabama A-Day game was Saturday as well.

    Hey, Rocky! Thanks for the mention. I’m just now getting around to looking at other friends websites.

    Hi Rocky. The festival sounds like it was great fun, something I would’ve enjoyed. I started a new horror novel reviewing blog and was wondering if you wouldn’t mind giving me a free copy of Clemenceau’s Daughters in exchange for a review. The url is – the review will be the very first on the blog.

      Hi Bruce. Just saw this…recovering from surgery and all. Would love for you to do a review of Clemenceau’s Daughters for your horror arm. Send me your email and I’ll shoot you an electronic copy. Thanks, Rocky
