Interviews and More Interviews

Authors Heather and Christopher

Heather and I (Christopher) have been interviewed again, and I thought I should provide links so all of our wonderful fans don’t have to go hunting for them. We have also been working on our 2013 calendar of appearances.

Salado Scottish Festival and Highland Games

Just a few weekends ago we attended the Salado Scottish Festival and Highland Games in Salado, Texas. What a time we had… As we were unpacking our truck to set up our tent at the fair grounds, Heather and I noticed that our tent frame had broken in transit, and without parts it was irreparable. With no tent frame, we rushed to the Walmart in Belton and then the Academy in Temple, before we found a tent we thought would work. After driving all the way back to Salado, we soon realized that this tent would never hold up to any sort of rain or wind (the roof came in layers, you see, with big openings where one layer overlayed another). This would not do… so we rushed back to Temple’s Academy and exchanged the tent. This one also, we found out, was not rated for wind or rain (you don’t learn these things unless you open the box and look at the directions inside… neither the website nor the box mentioned these important facts.) So, we used the roof and sides from the other tent (the broken one).

Heavy winds buffeted us as we set up, so we took extra precautions tying it down for the night. Thankfully, when we got there Saturday morning to set up everything inside the tent, it was still there. However, not everyone was so fortunate to have tents that had not been chewed up by 40 to 50 MPH wind gusts through the night. Even during the day, winds gusted up to between 30 MPH and 40 MPH, with 20 to 25 MPH being the normal range. Though rain threatened, we stayed dry. Lots of folks, family, friends, and new fans alike, stopped by our tent, and many left with a copy of at least one of our works… some bought all four books (and got the chapter book as well). Still, rumors of possible thunderstorms late that night and most of the next day spread, and the hourly report on the NWS website furthered speculation that the next day would be replete with thunder, lightning, rain, and more wind. With a tent that didn’t meet our needs (and one that we would later return), we decided to pack the tent early (so it wouldn’t get wet or… destroyed… before we had a chance to return it). Several other vendors packed up, as well as a few clan tents. However, we learned that the event still went on Sunday, but soon after we left, it started to rain. We would have still been open for business, and we would have packed up a wet tent. Not the first time we have done that, but I wanted to turn the tent in as pristine as possible.

All in all, we had fun, and it was great seeing family and friends there. We will definitely be making the trek back there next year. This was our last appearance this year, but we will be at Dickens on the Strand in Galveston, Texas this year, though as patrons and not authors.
