So I had all these grand plans for fully partaking in Wordfest last week. I told them I would volunteer, host two events, and generally be anywhere and everywhere as much as my schedule would allow. My husband even offered to take some time off work so I could immerse myself in the festival experience. Alas, fate had other plans, and they came in the form of hand, foot and mouth disease.
So needless to say, I missed out on most of the fun times I had planned, but I was still able to make it to my Sunday hosting gig as most of my rash had disappeared by then, and I was no longer contagious. Michael Koryta, Jay Hosking, Andrew F. Sullivan and Michael Helm were my artists, and together we made up the Sunday Mystery and Suspense Showcase. We had a super fun time onstage, and the gentlemen enjoyed making fun of me backstage (no one wanted to shake my hand, for obvious reasons) so my Wordfest story had a happy ending after all.
I’ve posted my review of Michael Kortya’s book, and I’ll be posting my reviews of the other three artists later this week, so stay tuned!
