Thursday Thoughts

Last year, New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers told me that I was the calmest person she'd ever seen before pulling off a huge conference like Book 'Em North Carolina.

I do admit, something happens during the final two weeks and I do become very calm.

I know I've worked on the event for an entire year (see this Monday's post for details) and at this point, what is going to happen will happen.

Will it be perfect? Of course not. Nothing is ever perfect. But it will be awesome. Something magical happens at these events and I have no doubt this year will be no different.

Last year, an unpublished author attended and literally ran into a publisher - they began talking and long story short, he asked for her manuscript. One year later and she'll be back and selling her new book on Cooking with Carolina Wines. I hope you'll look for Ginger King at the conference!

You're amazing, and I'll bet Book 'Em NC will be every bit as wonderful this year as it was last year. Hope to get to your beautiful part of the country again one day soon.
