However, it was good to meet and mingle with all the other authors and get an opportunity to share our aspirations. I was surprised how upbeat everyone seemed to be despite the disappointing turnout. There were authors of every imaginable genre: from the occult to the spiritual; from mystery to romance; from picture book to chapter book; from Cuba to Cambodia. Too bad all these fine people didn't get to share their livelong ambitions with the public this day.
But there will be other days and other times and in this trade, like many others, you live and learn.
No one said it would be easy.
