This has been a busy Fall.
October 29 Talmo, Georgia First Baptist Church
On Saturday, October 29 Leda and I as well as Mark Rood attended the Fall Festival “Trunk or Treat” at Talmo Baptist Church in Talmo, Georgia. We had been approached several weeks ago by the organizer during the Art in the Park event and asked if we would attend. We agreed we would be at the occasion whose hours were 4:00 to 6:30 in the evening. Although if started out slow for book sales, we wound up selling 14 books in the 90 minutes we were there. We felt like it was a successful adventure.
There were only 8 vendors at the event and the church offered free hot dogs, chips, drinks and a huge assortment of cupcakes! Although it was a small community, the response to our books was very favorable and the church was grateful we agreed to attend. Our most popular book this time was the “Camelino” book. We sold 5 of the books and had several persons interested in the “Ordinary People, Extraordinary God” series.

September 17-18, Maysville, Georgia, Art in the Park
This was our third year attending this festival and it proved to be our best event ever. We sold 20 books on Saturday and 17 books on Sunday for a total of 37 books for the weekend. We also sold Inspirational cards, greeting cards and animal prints. We sold a cross section of all our books, but the “Veggie” books appeared to be or best seller, again.
