Anatomy of an Imaginarium Book Signing

The inaugural Imaginarium is in the books and I had a blast. Held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, Imagianrium brought together writers from all genres and disciplines. Things started out a little slow on Friday, but picked up like a downhill roller coaster. The event is the brain child of Stephen Zimmer of Seventh Star Press and he and all the volunteers did a fabulous job.

I spent the weekend at the Hydra Publications table with  Dave Creek, Rachael Rawlings,Stuart Thaman and Tom Wallace. I also participated in panels until my voice gave out. Literally gave out. If you did not attend, I highly recommend you do so next year. I learned quite a bit from all the other talented authors, publishers, screenwriters, filmmakers and songwriters who were on hand. Not to mention getting to hang out with great folk like Jay Noel (who was our house guest for the weekend), AJ Scudiere, James O. Barnes, Frank Hall,  Chris Brown, Violet Patterson, Jerry Benns, Jill Campbell, Marianne Allen and T. Lee Harris.

Random things I will remember? Studly dancing at Howlers, Jay’s picture with old Elvis, the fire alarm to start the event, Dancing Cat, the joy that is Rebekah McAuliffe, seeing Andrew Cooper get a tapeworm, Fireball Whiskey from a friend, among many others.

Here are a few photos from the weekend:
