Books & Cooks 2014

As those of you who saw my previous post know, I attended this years Books & Cooks event at Madison Library as one of the authors. The event itself was pretty good and I recommend going in a following year if you ever get a chance. During the event I had a small table and display. This is actually not the smallest space I have ever had. Right behind me was the library’s section for books in the same age level as my own and yes I did borrow a lot of books from this section while I was there.


At this event I expected to see a lot of new authors. Before coming I also expected to see an author I knew from the previous days event. What I didn’t expect was that I would actually know two authors there and that the only two I knew would be my neighbors. Closer to the end of the event I went around to the other authors tables. It should come to no surprise to anyone that I found a book I wanted to get. The book was Bash and the Pirate Pig by: Burton W. Cole.


The day didn’t end with myself buying this book. I also got my picture taken with Burton twice as he liked what I was wearing. First this picture was taken:


This one just features myself in my Batman hoodie with Burton and his book.

Second was this one:


This one features much of the same thing only I am not wearing the hood and Burton is holding one of the promotion cards for my Mortal Realm Witch series. So far I think this was one of the strangest things I have had happen at an event, but it was also fun. Burton is a fun author and if you get a chance I definitely suggest checking out at least his Facebook page. He really knows how to have fun with it.

Currently Burton has released two children’s books. Bash and the Pirate Pig can be found as a hardback print book or a Kindle book on Amazon.


The second book, Bash and the Chicken Coop Caper is also available in both editions from Amazon:

I recently created albums for 2012-2013 events and 2014 events. Today I also added an album for events that I am attending in the future, so if you live in Ohio, have Facebook, and are interested, be sure to check that out as well.

And, as always, you can learn more about my books in the following places: The Mortal Realm Witch series:,,
