On November seventh, I went to a book fair in Park Station in Pinellas Park, Florida. There was a food truck and author readings. Not as many customers showed up as I would have liked, but I got to meet a lot of interesting local authors, including:
Bria Burton writes short stories of various kinds, many of which have been published in magazines and anthologies.
Bradford Ward writes stories about a silverfish, a cockroach, and a stinkbug to teach children science.
Russell James keeps a blog featuring many writers of paranormal and fantasy.
Patricia Noll wrote a book explaining how to be happy. She also manages a blog to go with it.
There were also many more who didn't have websites or I lost their info. Some of the books I am now thinking of buying include:
First Magyc, Guardians of the Path, by Nicole dragonbeck
Individually Wrapped, by Jeremy Bullian
The Elements of Song, by Karen L. Parker
I saw this black can outside of church one rainy day a few weeks ago. I had no idea what it was for, so I looked inside.
Apparently it's a trash can.
These were all taken in the past two months from all over the neighborhood. Click on the "read more" link to see the rest.
On November 7th, I will be at the Tampa Bay Book Fair with copies of The Spider, The Witch, And The Spaceship. I'm still not sure where yet.
Another poem popped into my head. This one I imagine to the tune of Hey There Delilah by Plain White T's - with parts missing.
Another poem popped into my head. This one I imagine to the tune of Hello by Adele - with some parts added.
Back on DeviantArt.com, I discovered some more great artists, including creators of surreal, abstract, and creepy pieces.
Hello, my name is Dan. I am an author, artist, explorer, and contemplator of subjects large and small. I like bacon. I like pizza. I like bacon pizza. I enjoy long walks on the beach, but prefer the mountains. I am a huge fan of Jesus. When I grow up, I want to be just like him and create my own universes.
