I love festivals. Whether it’s a convention or a carnival, I love it when people congregate to show their appreciation for a common interest, or simply to celebrate and have fun.
This is a fantastic annual outdoor event that draws thousands of lovers of books and more. I’m proud to say I’ll be with TRW again at a brand-new book festival in November called Inspire! The Toronto International Book Fair.
I’ve yet to go to either the RWA Nationals conference or the RT Book Lovers Convention, but one day I hope to, if only to meet my wonderful colleagues who write for Harlequin Superromance.

This was on a slow day.
One day. I’d also like to go to a Renaissance fair. Call me a romantic, but I love the idea of medieval-themed gatherings. Walking around a fairground with a roasted turkey leg in hand is on my bucket list. And since the airing of the Outlander TV series, I wouldn’t mind seeing a Scottish Highland games event, either. Who doesn’t want to watch burly men in kilts hucking logs across a field in a caber toss?
