Jacksonville Library Book Festival

Jacksonville Library Book Festival

Nancy and Andrea were fortunate to have been chosen to exhibit at the inaugural Jacksonville Library Book Festival in 2017.

On a beautiful Saturday in March, 150 local and national authors spread out in hallways and balconies in Jacksonville’s spectacular main library. The event was well-organized and the library staff was warm and efficient as they checked in authors, helped us find our spaces, and get the tables set up. They even checked on us from time-to-time during the day.

And, like almost any multi-author event, we met some wonderful people — both readers and other writers.

Forgetting and Remembering: Writing Prompt

Forgetting and Remembering: Writing Prompt

 

When someone dies, you don’t get over it by forgetting; you get over it by remembering, and you are aware that no person is ever truly lost or gone once they have been in our life and loved us, as we have loved them. ~ Leslie Marmon Silko

Testing Colors and Fonts

Testing Colors and Fonts

After choosing brand elements, they need to be reflected in our materials. That includes a website, made from a template I’d not used before. So, while building the site, there were several test posts designed both to see such elements and to share them with the rest of the team.

This post shows the various headline colors, sizes, and fonts so we would know which to choose. (They are generally created in the template navigation but can be “applied” from WordPress.)

While writing a WordPress post, you will see a drop-down menu in the upper left corner. That drop-down can be used to assign various formats to parts of your post. One of the reasons for creating a guide post like this one is so you can see what you are choosing — they don’t look like much from the draft side!

We’re sharing lots of these process pieces with members so you can get a feel for how the parts fit together.

Sand Between Your Toes: Writing Prompt

Sand Between Your Toes: Writing Prompt

Many of our members are fortunate to live on this island full time. We often refer to Amelia Island as our little piece of paradise. Meanwhile, on Centre Street, shoppers can find t-shirts, plaques, or mugs to keep them gratitude-focussed: if you’re lucky enough to be at the beach, you’re lucky enough.

Do you have a favorite beach memory? Care to share?

The Greenway

 

We are fortunate to have several miles of wild trails winding through the heart of the island. Dog walking. Biking. Watching the turtles and the birds. There are bunnies galore and the occasional gator. It’s a great place for island authors to come and recharge. It’s part of what makes the lifestyle here so conducive to growth.
