At Morristown Festival of Books once again! Talk 1 was on romance - a conversation between Meg Cabot and Tessa Bailey! So fun it was like hanging out with two girlfriends. Can't wait to read No Judgments and Fix Her Up! #morristownfestivalofbooks #mfob #mfob2019 #bookfestival #authortalk #romantsy

Delia Owens gave a talk about her book 'Where the Crawdads Sing' at the Fayetteville Public Library (Northwest Arkansas) today. It was a very interesting discussion. I was able to get my copy signed, too. 😀 #ifallarkansasreadthesamebook #authortalk #rplbooksandbrews

Adding to my unintentional Paris / France theme yesterday was this #gburgbookfest talk with author Lynne Olson and critic Bethanne Patrick. Olson just published the tagged book. It sounds absolutely fascinating and I already tracked it down in Scribd Sweet like a macaron!

tpixie Cool in many ways! I‘m just finishing up The Alice Network which is about women spies during World War I! It is a fantastic read! (edited) 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie Oooh. I have that one—great suggestion! 6mo
tpixie @BarbaraTheBibliophage so glad you got to go to this event!! Last year I went to #NatBookFest and it was amazing! 6mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie I‘d like to the #NatBookFest also. But I‘d stay in DC overnight rather than drive/Metro it all in one day. Not sure when, though. It always seems to be over Mr. B‘s birthday weekend. 6mo
tpixie Yes it‘s over Labor Day weekend. Someday I want to do the NYC #BookExpo & #BookCon I was hoping to this year, but a colleague at work left this Spring, so I‘m holding down the fort until a replacement comes in August! Can‘t go to NatBookFest this year - my daughter is due to have twins in October. I‘d hate if I were gone and they came really early! Oh well, it‘s always good to have wants!! 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie I‘d love to do those NYC book shows. But it‘s just SO expensive to stay up there. Maybe someday ..: 6mo
tpixie @BarbaraTheBibliophage yes - money 💰 is a sad deterrent! 6mo

Have a great new day everyone. 😀🌈📚
I‘m doing an author talk at a library soon. If you were going to a book talk, what would you like the author to chat about the most?
#Littens #AuthorTalk #Library

Cinfhen I like learning the inspiration behind the story 😊 1y
kezzlou85 I always like to hear about an authors inspirations for their books and what sort of books you love. 💜 hope it goes really well. 1y

LizzieChantree @kezzlou85 Great ideas. Thank you! I hadn‘t thought of mentioning what books I like to read too. ☀️ 1y
Bklover What @kezzlou85 said! What are your favorite books? 1y
LizzieChantree @Bklover The first book that gave me a love reading, was The Hobbit. I thought it was such an amazing story and read it in school. Now I enjoy all sorts of genres, but my favourites are romance and humour. It‘s probably why that‘s the genre I write in too. The stories make me smile and I hope they do the same for anyone who grabs a copy to read. Everyone needs a little extra sunshine, ☀️💗 1y
Bklover Your book sounds fascinating! When does it come out? 1y
LizzieChantree @Bklover Thank you! It‘s available for pre-order from Amazon now. The release date is the 9th July. If you read it, let me know what you think. 😀💗🌈📚 1y
