… thank you, Patty, for sharing your experience at HallowRead. Looking forward to having you participate as an author this year! … Rachel
I love autumn, Halloween, books and writing…
and when I heard about the first HallowRead event being held in historical Ellicott City, Maryland, in October, 2013 – I made sure I got my ticket!
Excited and curious to discover what awaited me on my arrival, our wonderful hostess, Rachel Rawlings greeted me with a friendly smile and handed me a welcome bag filled with goodies from authors. I was encouraged and invited to spend the evening strolling around the historic town and making myself at home, while meeting the guest authors. With a warm welcome indeed, I immediately met two authors that invited me and a friend of mine to stroll along and stop at one of the fabulous local restaurants to grab a delicious, wee bite of dinner.
I didn’t attend the late evening ghost tours (as I prefer pumpkins and scarecrows to ghosts), but I was told by others that braved the ghostly adventure, that they had a fabulous time on the guided tours.
On Saturday, I bundled up my sweater and goody bag, and strolled through the decorated town to attend the fun filled panels. The panels were extremely enjoyable and informative, and it was a grand opportunity to meet other people, and authors interested in the same genres. Not only were the authors friendly and helpful, but they were glad to share their individual writing adventures and successes, and give advice to others interested in pursuing a writing career.
I can’t express how eager I am to visit this wonderful event once again, (and at its new location in Havre de Grace, MD), but I’m thrilled to share that this time, I’ll actually be one of the attending authors, now published in both adult and children’s stories. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there.
I wish to take this opportunity to send a special thank you to my friend, and dear hostess, Rachel Rawlings, for organizing such a wonderful event each year. HallowRead has been a huge inspiration for me to continue to pursue a life long dream. – I’m delighted to share with others, “HallowRead” is definitely one adventure you’ll be glad you didn’t miss. Hope to see you there!
