I'm beside myself, dear stitchy and reader friends. The "Miami Bookfair International 2009" will be here next weekend and my knees are weak. Name the author and he or she will be here! I have to go, even if it's by myself. I'm only a 2 hour drive from Miami going along Alligator Alley from Naples.
Let me tell you who a few of the authors are who will be there, you'll just die!
Joyce Carol Oates
The author who writes "Dexter"-Jeff Lindsay
A. Manette Ansay
Well, there are 3-4 pages of authors!! Go see for yourselves: http://www.miamibookfair.com/
So, of course, I'm going. I just couldn't think of anyone to go with me. I asked Libby, of the made up witch fame, but she couldn't go. And, I asked Elaine, but she isn't well enough....and Elaine said, "There's really noone else who reads at your intellectual level, Deb. So, you have to go by yourself." I'm a little scared, because, as I've told you, I'm somewhat of a reclusive, artistic type...but I have to push myself out of my house and I have to go!!! I especially want to see my very favorites M. Atwood, Joyce C. Oates, and Wally Lamb. If only Anne Rice were coming! :[ But, I'm beside myself as it is.
Please go to the site and see all the goodies there! More on my Gemini split personality and neurotic behavior later.... :P
BTW...I do have another blogsite if any of you are interested. It's my book site called: http://boundtobebookish.wordpress.com Please stop by sometime!
