I had attended the one held last year, and had a great time. The second annual event was greatly anticipated, especially when the UPPAA decided to hold it later in the year. This time, as soon as I heard about it, I printed off flyers - one for the library, and one for myself to use as a shopping list.
Once again, my wallet and checkbook left the mall considerably lighter, and my boyfriend had a box-load of books to carry to the car. Much thanks to all the authors who participated; it was good to see all of you. Special thanks to Tyler Tichelaar for the box, the extra book for the school library, and all your hard work. Also, special thanks to Mary T. Kremer for her book donation.
Many of the authors in attendance this time were not at last year's event. Quite a few are self-published through Globe Printing in Ishpeming or are published through small presses. As with last year, I will do my best to offer where these books can be obtained.
My Marquette, a nonfiction book, and Spirit of the North, a paranormal romance, by Tyler Tichelaar (his web site, where you can find his hefty collection of books)
