S1E5 When a teen messes up this podcast by being awesome

Our adventure at the American Fork Indie Author Day

Season 1, episode 5
51 min / Published

Well, my son Simon and I were able to take part in the American Fork Indie Author Day last Saturday.

It was very enjoyable and I must say, insightful in many respects. Though the library didn't have as many teens show up as I'd hoped, my true intent was to be there, have a new experience, and mix with 'my people'. Yes, I wanted to meet readers of Chronicles of a Hero, which I did--and thank you for traveling so far to see me, you beautiful people--but I hoped to learn something new.

I did.

After all the conversations, and directing my attention at every child that passed my table--I learned that it'll always be a teen that walks up, gives me a smile, and does a sudden Karate chop to my plans. After the whole event passed, it was a teen girl who approached me, gave me a smile and with her mother and grandmother standing there...showed me how this podcast is lacking.


So sit back, have a Sugar Free Dr Pepper with me and Simon and enjoy today's episode of Life of Fiction.

P.S. Check out the show notes---I uploaded a set of pictures from the event. You might enjoy them 😃
