people in Lethbridge, Alberta love books! I was just at their second Word On The Street Festival this Sunday. Here I am with author Murray Pura at the panel on writing romance.
We spoke about the special demands of writing romance, and what ingredients make for a compelling love story.
Murray has written many things, but he spoke about the special challenges and joys of writing Amish Romance, which apparently is very popular these days.
Later I went to sign books and found the cutest signs had been made for the event…
The weather in Lethbridge was perfect. There was music, roaming performers, food, drink and best of all…lots of talk about books and reading.
I ran into talented YA author Janet Gurtler at the event. She’d done a reading from her RITA nominated book: I’m Not Her.
Word On The Street is that this is a really cool event and I was proud to be a part of it!
