My Adventures in ... Indianapolis (Ann Katz Festival of Books)

Last week, I was fortunate enough to be the final speaker at the Ann Katz Festival of Books in Indianapolis. While the book festival goes on every year on the north side of the city, this final night of speakers and authors was something new. It was a Local Author Fair with numerous Indy-based book writers, and then a speech on "Getting Your Book Published" by me. The whole thing went well and I would encourage anyone who lives in the area to check out the event in future years. And I offer a special thanks to the wonderful folks at the JCC and the Saturday Evening Post who treated me so well.
