Hello Llaget’s Book Worms,
If you’re looking for something awesome to do this weekend, I know just the thing! This weekend will be the AJC Decatur Book Festival and I will be a part of it. The AJC Decatur Book Festival is the largest independent book festival in the country and one of the five largest overall. Since its launch, more than 1,000 world-class authors and hundreds of thousands of festival-goers have crowded the historic downtown Decatur square to enjoy book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children’s area, live music, parades, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and more. The entire festival is from Friday the 29th through Sunday the 31st, but you can expect to see me on Saturday the 30th. I will be presenting The Boy with Hearts for Hair on the Emerging Authors Stage at 1:20PM and will hold a book signing immediately afterwards.
When: Saturday, August 30, 2014
Where: Decatur Square (116 Clairemont Avenue, Decatur, GA. 30030)
Stage: Emerging Authors
This is going to be a lot of fun for the family. I hope to see you there! =)

Hello Llaget’s Family,
I hope all is well. In this newsletter, I have a few things I would like to share with you. So here they are in no particular order.
Oakley Elementary School Visit
I had a great time visiting one of the most AMAZING schools in Georgia, Oakley Elementary. I got a chance to read, The Boy with Hearts for Hair, answer questions, create a dialogue about self-acceptance, and pass out COLORING SHEETS from the book! Thank you to all the teachers and students for inviting me into their classrooms. And thank you to Ms. Lockridge and Ms. Cammllarie for making this event possible. Click on the picture below to see more.
Recently, my good friend Jill interviewed me for her website, Real Answers-Real Authors. I was excited about this interview because Jill deals with a lot authors and inspiring authors. Her website provides plenty of resources and answers many questions one may have on creating a book. So if you have a book in your heart and considering publishing, I invite you to read the interview and also look around her site. (Click here for Interview.)
National Library Week
From April 13th to April 19th, 2014, it will be National Library Week. As many of you know, libraries are very important to me. I will be participating in National Library Week by visiting Forest Park Branch Library this Monday, April 14, 2014 as part of their “Spotlight on Local Authors” event. I will be there at 7pm to do a book reading/signing for The Boy with Hearts for Hair. Please come whenever you can, as there will be authors throughout the day presenting. Call Forest Park Library at (770) 347-0160 if you have any other questions about this event and/or other things going on for National Library Week.
Okay, I believe that’s all for now. Have a great weekend!
