Final 2 days on Equestrian Book Tour
On Friday, September 25th, I traveled with my husband, Bob, and son, Josh, to the suburbs of Philadelphia. Josh has lived in downtown Philly for 11 years and knows the whole region well.
Our first stop was at Horsatack - a new , HUGE, tack shop on the corner of Germantown Pike and Dekalb in Northtowne Plaza, East Norriton Township, PA. With a wonderful selection of books (they should be stocking mine soon) as well as riding apparel and equipent, it's the perfect "go to" place for a day trip for any horse lover! Visit them online at http://horsatack.com to learn more about their inventory. Or call the manager, Sam Fletcher, at 610-278-7590. I met Sam and found him very friendly and helpful!
On Saturday, September 26th, I attended the Infinity Publishing Writing Conference - Express Yourself Gathering of Authors held at the Valley Forge Convention Center, now the Clarion Hotel. It was wonderful to see old friends (this was my third Infinity conference) and learn insightful marketing techniques and other helpful tips. During the dinner, authors Brian Jud (right) and LinDee Rochelle interviewed John Harnish, Infinity Conference Director. He was accompanied by his Chow mix, Aurora (sorry if misspelled!) John reminisced and shared the history of the conference - this was its 10th anniversary.
Infinity was the first Print On Demand publisher, a natural growth from their printing company especially when they updated their machines to digital and local authors began asking them for their services. Visit their site at http://www.infinitypublishing.com and their online book catalog at http://www.buybooksontheweb.com
I met other authors and made new friends, and had a fantastic time!
