Waynesboro Book Em Event
Sunday, October 22, 2006  5:01:00 PM

by Willie Tee

I met fellow author Terre Sadler, who resides at Chesterfield County, Virginia like myself and within a short distance of my residence. Terre wrote the attached blog concerning us meeting each other at the Waynesboro Book Em Event.

The Book'Em event in Waynesboro was a success and a tremendous learning experience for me! It was the first time I had ever been "face to face" with readers and had the opportunity to tell them about my book. I would have been a "fish out of water" if it hadn't been for my new friend, Willie Tee! We shared a table, and Wille has been marketing his books for quite some time, and is an expert in all of this. He was gracious enough to teach me alot - and I learned even more just from watching and listening to him as he sold his books. I think we both did fairly well - but I give him all the credit for ANY book that I sold! It was a real blessing to be able to spend the day with him and get to know him. Be sure and check out Willie's books, Winds of Destiny and the sequel - Winds of Destiny-The Keepers of the Secret. Both are available through and And, you can read more about him at <>.

I experienced another "first" during the weekend, and that was participating in a panel discussion with other writers at the conference. It was a question and answer format - that was a bit disorganized at first, but we all pulled it together somehow and it went just fine. I am used to public speaking - but have never done it in relation to my writing. So, now I have an idea of what to expect. I had the privilege of getting to know Sharon Baldacci (author David Baldacci's sister.) She is a best-selling author also and was there promoting her book, A Sundog Moment. I had met her briefly the weekend before at the James River Writer's Conference, but was able to spend some time with her at the Book 'Em event and found her to be warm and inviting and I look forward to seeing her again sometime in the future.

While in Waynesboro, Marilyn and I were able to spend some time at their annual Fall Festival Art Show. The weather was glorious! And, it was nice to relax and amble along the streets, stopping at each vendor to enjoy and appreciate their work. It amazes me how many people are so gifted in expressing themselves through painting! I also couldn't escape the connection of what they were doing, and what I was doing at the Book 'Em event. I'm sure that they would agree that creating the art work - like writing my book - was the EASY part. The selling and marketing required are the things that make the experience like WORK!

So - now it is back to the grind! Back to writing and implementing the things that I have learned from all of this. I hope to have a new website up and running soon - and of course, it will include a link to this blog. Be sure and check here daily, as I will be posting entries on a more consistant basis now that I have finished with this event. I am so glad that I am pursuing this dream of mine. It is not an easy thing - but it is definitely rewarding.

"Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake." Marie Beynon Ray
