I spent one very awesome weekend in Aiken, SC. The Aiken Children's Book Festival was going on and I was a guest author. I just want to give a shout out to Fran for doing such a superb job at organizing everything (maps, food, hotels, communication, etc...). And I want to give a smooch to two cool authors I met: Melissa LeGette and Annette Laing. They made my day even more enjoyable.
