So Much Fun! Capital Indie Book Con

The first Capital Indie Book Con or CIBC presented by Clockwork Dragon was a fun and eclectic event. We met tons of other authors, the amazing and friendly readers who braved checking out a first year event, and everyone left with mass quantities of excellent books to read. FVP plans to return next year…Watch for info, readers, and definitely put this next one on your calendar to attend!

 Note from Editor: I’m sorry I was so busy meeting cool authors and checking out the books that I failed to get more than half of the booths in photos…I even missed Clockwork Dragon and our fabulous guest author: Jennifer Brozek ! Sincere apologies for my poor reporting. -sjk
