Yesterday I spent the day hocking books at the Collingswood Book Festival, which is in its 9th year, and runs up and down the main street in Collingswood – Haddon Ave. Let me start off by saying that I had an absolutely fabulous time – it was well-organized, fun, and all the people involved were super friendly and helpful! So, a big thanks goes to them!!
But in addition to the festival itself, everything else about the day was ahh-mazing. I met some really cool fellow vendors, in particular the gentlemen at the booth next to me, Jim, who owns Fenham Publishing, and had some really cool horror/supernatural books for sale, written by his own grandfather (who was friends with Houdini – how cool is that??) I highly recommend checking out his site!
The crowd was by far, the best crowd at any festival I’ve ever attended as a vendor, as well. Granted, this was my first Book/Literary event. Up until now, I’ve attended primarily craft festivals, selling homemade bags, or knit hats, or shirts, or whatever I thought I wanted to do at the time. I sold baked goods as well at more recent ones, and found that to be more fulfilling, however it still had nothing on yesterday. I felt…at home. I love writing. I love books. I love reading. I majored in English Lit in college for a reason, and had no real idea what that reason was until yesterday. Whenever someone asked, “are you the author?” my heart literally fluttered. I am a writer. That’s who I am. And I finally found a subject on which I can really wax poetic – baking. I bake, therefore I write.
So, thanks to all my friends who came out to say “Hi” and support me – you guys are the best!! And thanks to all the people I met yesterday who stopped by the booth! I loved chatting with all of you!! If you purchased the book, I hope you enjoy it! If you’d like to purchase it, you can do so right now by clicking on the image below:

Anyway, thanks again to everyone who had anything to do with any part of yesterday. It was such a wonderful, fabulous, fantastic, amazing and all-around happy day. I’m so grateful to be where I am right now. Thank you, clarity. Thank you, consequence. Thank you, thank you silence.
