Barbara Tiller Cole: On The Eve of a Landmark Event!

On The Eve of a Landmark Event!
Decatur Book Festival--Jane Austen: Then and Now Events!!
By a Very Excited Barbara Tiller Cole
Bags are being packed, plane tickets and mapquest directions being printed, books have either already sent or being packed in cars, excitement is hardly being contained.  16 Authors are headed this way! And another 12 are participating remotely.  Volunteers have dusted off their Regency outfits, banners and table and chair covers are getting their last stitches.  Nerves exist for a few (me included). 

The Plaza sits ready for out tents there in Decatur, Georgia.  See if you can imagine them as they will be set up to the right of the first column on the right (in the picture above). 

I can't wait to see everyone!  So many of you are coming in addition to our authors.  Please drop by and see all of us.

If you would like to see the final schedule for the book signings and book readings at the tent, I could not figure out how to upload it to this site.  You will need to go to the Darcyholic Diversions Facebook page as they are uploaded there.  Or, if you are not on facebook leave me a message here including your email address and I will send them to you.  

Today's post is a summary post.  I am including links for all of the authors that are participating in DBF who are participating.  There are only a couple of the 8 who have not yet taken a part.  If you are coming or if you are not, I know that they would all appreciate your remembering a little bit about them.

First of all, I will share links with the DBF authors that still have Active August GiveAways:
