I taught a couple of workshops on Saturday (which I'll highlight on my editing blog), and I listened to several great speakers. Even more than a writer, I'm a reader and a huge fan of many authors. I met Sandra Dallas (alas, no picture), and I also attended a workshop by Richard Paul Evans (thanks Nichole Giles for the picture!). He is one of those brilliant marketers, and I feel like I have to write down every word he says.

Alison Palmer of Tangled Words and Dreams recently posted her review of Alma here! Alison frequently reviews books on her site, and she is also an author. If you teach kids, she has books to fit your needs. Her next book Simply Singing Time will be out in October. Thanks Alison!
