Shannon and I started the day with Starbucks, muffins and chatting.
The Opening Session with Steve Berry (I JUST finished The Jefferson Key, a Cotton Malone mystery), Tess Gerristen, and Diana Gabaldon (I've read most of each lady's books). All three were interesting and funny. More on their comments later - when I feel like opening my notebook/
Soon we'll have the keynote luncheon with Madeline Hunter.
After that I'll be going to the PRO Retreat.
And, yes, there are free books - many free books. I've been thrown into "that briar patch!"
