This fall, FarmerMan and I are attending nearby fall festivals. We haul our books, tables, and tent and set up in a field or in a parking lot. Our most recent fall festival was the Elevate Artisan Market hosted at an alpaca farm. Some people go to their local chain bookstore to sell and sign books. My hat’s off to them, but I suspect I met more people, sold more books, and had more fun at the alpaca farm.
My booth neighbor
Notice that Donna Butler, a talented woodworker and carpenter, and my booth neighbor, is strategically placed across from the maisie daze fleecery.
My prime location
I had a corner booth. One side of my tent faced the fleecery shop’s alpaca petting pen, and the other side overlooked a field of beautiful alpacas.
All the volunteers at the event wore T-shirts with the tagline, “Spit Happens.” Alpaca humor. A little known fact is that when an alpaca mama is giving birth, she is said to be “unpacking.”
Art festivals are very educational.

(A) Planned Cover
(B) Alternate Cover
Sometimes setting something aside and looking at it later with fresh eyes results in a new idea or a panic.
The advantage of having the cover and the book ready for printing in advance is no last-minute scramble to pull everything together. The disadvantage is creeping doubt.
I can go with either. I’d like to know what you think.
A or B?
