I’ve always loved books, as far back as I can remember. But book festivals? I never even knew there was such a thing. Then I became an author, and still didn’t know about them. Finally, I decided to actually get serious about my writing and my books; that’s when I found out about book festivals. A part of me likes to think that I would have loved attending them, had I known about them earlier; but most of me knows that the introverted guy that actually runs my social life would have balked at going, and would have probably read a book instead. Knowing what I know now, I can say I would have gotten hooked if I’d tried it. I’m definitely hooked now that I know a little more about them, from the other side of the table.
