Quote from Captivated

"I stood close to the edge looking down at what I thought was my death. Then, I somehow ignored the water and only saw him. He looked like a dark angel on a cloud of mist holding his arms out to me. I closed my eyes and inhaled deeply. Then I jumped." Mindy - Captivated, An Affliction Novel

This is amazing guys! The Tucson Festival of Books invited me to participate in the event! I will have a booth set up on March 10th  from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Soooo, if you are going to be there, stop by and say hi! 

Here's a little info about the festival...


About the festival

By Festival Staff / March 18, 2010
2nd Annual book festival drew in more smiles

John Humenik can proudly announce: “This year’s book festival was an even bigger success than its debut of 50,000 people and 450 authors that attended last year’s festival. More people, more smiles, and a greater energy.” With over 1,000 volunteers running the festival, a variety of authors and events successfully took place for parents, teens, and kids:

Character Parade for kids of famous children book characters the Wild Thing and the Hungry Catapillar.

The Lindley Lopez Literary Circus performing a circus acts of literary themes.

A Science Pavilion, with science writers Gary Smalls, Robert Glennon, and Kate Jackson, a science writing panel, and science zone with Insect Discovery and a DNA Forensics Murder Mystery.

A TV Culinary area for travel, garden, and cooking and home improvement. Cooking demonstrations by Canyon Ranch’s Scott Uehlein, and Janos Wilder from Janos.

Popular local Tucson restaurants Zivaz, Brushfire, Pastiche, and The Fat Greek and Create fed and pleased crowds.

The festival saw and heard more than 450 authors:
Children’s author Michael Buckley, The Sister’s Grimm and Nerd Series who also works on the Cartoon Network Series “Horrorbots,” Mark Frost, television/film writer, co-created and co-produced Twin Peaks, Jordon Hill, famous storyteller, told stories of the Jewish tradition, and popular novelist Curtis Sittendeld, best-selling author or Prep and fictional novel of Laura Bush American Wife was in attendance.

Bill Viner was happy to see more people and more smiles for a second year in a row:
“It’s great to see how many people returned from last year, and how much bigger the turn-out was this year. Everyone had a great time!”

Once expenses are settled and bills are paid, there will be announcement about how much was raised for literacy groups in Tucson. 

Festival Heard Many Great Performances 

Thank you to all the wonderful entertainers who donated their valuable 
time and creative talents to the 2010 Festival of Books. This year's 
entertainment focused on youth and local performers from dancers, poets, 
singers, and drama performances to jazz, classical, acoustical and rock 
musicians representing cultural groups from around the world. The Tucson 
Festival of Books is a celebration of literacy, the literacy of the 
written word as well as the literacy of language through music, song, 
and the spoken word. Thanks to all the performers whose talents 
entertain as well as increase the literacy of our community.
