      Sorry I am this late getting into the TBF discussion.........

      I have a couple of years experience with booths at TBF........one year was
      the one when Dotti sold 200 books.........the booth I know about might have
      sold $250 worth of product between about 12 authors........the sales
      weren't the only thing dismal, it rained the whole weekend.........

      Then last year the Texas Authors Group had 2 10x10 booths.......it was a
      horrible location.......we were just off by ourselves along with 4-5 other
      booths and got no traffic.........I talked to no one who sold much product
      even where they had traffic........Dottie, you are just a marketing genius
      to have sold 200 books in the rain at that book festival........

      I did talk to a few librarians last year........a few more were teachers,
      but that might have been a combined 5 percent.........the rest were retail
      market and would have no sway when it comes to school visits........

      Please keep me posted on the booth........I am interested if the Texas
      Authors Group doesn't do a booth this year......

      Also, all events aren't to sell product, some are for awareness........any
      visibility is good visibility...........Rita
