A Summer of Festivals
WINONA, INC. – The Book has made the rounds this Spring and Summer of 2018—
We were in Castleberry Hill in May.
I got my hair cut and added a streak before attending Creative Con in June.
The AJC-DBF is the largest independent book festival in the country and I was a scheduled speaker on Sunday followed by a personal one-on-one book signing. Joined by my stepdaughter and most able assistant, Yolanda, who took pics, shot the viddy, passed out books to customers and kept the WINONA, INC. pile nice and neat, I asked myself a million times, “what would I do without her??”
My peeps who attended said that I did well. And that’s good because in spite of practice, I still went blank at the podium a few times and was forced to wing it. I’m good at winging it, though. 😉 It helps to know your subject matter and, I know Winona. Backwards, forwards and sideways. Someone always asks if Winona is me. I tell them no, no, hell no. I don’t have the nerve to do the things that she does!!
As always, I thank all of you for your encouragement and support. Here’s to a HAPPY SEPTEMBER, a wonderful Autumn, and a lot more WINONA, INC.! A brand new episode begins TOMORROW—WHAT’S A LITTLE BLACKMAIL AMONGST FRIENDS?— celebrating the return of resident rock-goddess Lourdis, followed by seven days of total fabulousness during NEW YORK FASHION WEEK. So grab your wig and LET’S GO!
