Examiner Christian Fiction editor Dee Stewart who writes as Miranda Parker for Kensington Books will appear at this weekend’s Decatur Book Festival. The Atlanta Georgia Peach Authors invited her to be a guest author on their Real Housewives of Literature Discussion Panel to be held on Saturday, September 1, 2012, 5:30 PM ET at Decatur Conference Center Auditorium.
“I’m a huge fan of DBF. In fact I’ve been a volunteer for three years and stage captain for two years. This year you can also find me managing the Old Courthouse stage. The atmosphere, the food, the discussions are always mind blowing. It is the most fun your family can have this Labor Day Weekend,” Parker states.
Parker along with the Atlanta Georgia Peach Authors: Marissa Monteih, Jean Holloway, Gail McFarland, and Electa Rome Parks will share the joys and challenges of working in the publishing industry, how these friends banned together to tour together, support each other and leverage each others band, and to answer the question which author feels most connected to which Bravo’s Real Atlanta Housewife.
“In this industry with so many books out, having your book noticed is next to impossible, especially when you’re a new writer. Yet, these women befriended me last year, welcomed me into their world, and gave me exposure I couldn’t gain myself. I’m excited to share the stage with them.”
Decatur City Commissioner Kecia Cunningham will moderate the panel.
