Fun in Decatur!
Saturday afternoon. I was dead tired. Really dragging at the Decatur Book Festival in Decatur, GA. Would the day ever end??
Then I heard the music.
"Dad! Dad! It's Cynthia's Attic! It's Cynthia's Attic! There's the new book!!"
Two of the sweetest girls came running into our tent, their dad dutifully in tow. They grabbed copies of "Curse of the Bayou," Book Three in my series, and jumped up and down. I remembered them from the year before. So excited when they bought the first two books.
My feet stopped hurting, my calves stopped aching and tirednesss evaporated from my bones. Those two young fans energized me and carried me through the rest of that day and the next.
They made my weekend. Can't wait for Decatur '09!
