During this week of Thanksgiving, I wish all my readers glad hearts, full tummies, the companionship of their loved ones, and the delight of a great book. I don’t believe we have any author talks this week but I found some great conference updates and a new retreat. Scroll down to see who’ll be there.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
Happy Book Birthday
Congratulations to local author Maria Ashworth for her new holiday picture book release!
