I just came back from a fun and busy whirlwind weekend at the South Carolina Book Festival in Columbia, South Carolina!
I attended four panels on Saturday...

Southern Kitchen panel (L-R); Griffith and Cheryl Day (owners of Back in the Day Bakery of Savannah, GA), Nathalie Dupree, and moderator Will Balk
... and three panels on Sunday:
(Not Too) Cozy Mystery panel (L-R): moderator Marcia Rowen, Elizabeth Huntsinger, Susan M. Boyer, and Carole Morden
Other Worlds: Young Adult Fantasy panel (L-R): moderator Amy Carol Reeves, Jana Oliver, Megan Miranda, and Lori Goldstein
Farm to Table panel (L-R): moderator Nancy Brock, Francine Bryson, Perre Coleman Magness, and Renea Winchester
In addition to all of these awesome panels there was an exhibit hall where I was able to get author autographs, talk to more authors....
Honey the Dixie Dingo Dog is a Carolina Dog- a dog indigenous to North America
... and hand out my snazzy new business cards!
Oh, and I purchased some books to add to my reading mountain, I mean, reading pile....
All are autographed copies!
