I look forward to the DBF every year, but my level of excitement rises or falls with the author lineup -- some years are better than others. Still, I nearly always meet some excellent writers I would otherwise have never been aware of.

These are the authors I'm excited about this year.


Workshop with Amanda Kyle Williams and Peter Farris.


1:45-2:30 -- How to Write Short: Word Craft for Fast Times - Book Launch! featuring Roy Peter Clark.

4:15-5:00 -- Haldol and Hyacinths: A Bipolar Life featuring Melody Moezzi.


12:00-12:45 - Do Book Reviews Matter? featuring Teresa Weaver, Gina Webb, Lev Grossman, Charles McNair.

12:00-12:45 -- A Deadly Combination: Mystery + Comedy featuring Bill Roorbach, Susan Boyer.

12:00-12:45 -- The Returned - Book Launch! featuring Jason Mott.

1:15-2:00 -- Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father featuring Alysia Abbott.

2:30-3:15 -- The Lost Daughter featuring Mary Williams.

5:00-5:45 -- Beneath the Surface featuring Joshilyn Jackson, Gillian Royes (even though they stole the title of my novel).

As for Sunday, I'll probably just skip the first three and hang out at Brick Store Pub.
