Springfeild Author Fair

Had so much fun at the author fair at the Springfield public library on Saturday. Mr. Jaquith the organizer of the event was a true gentleman patient and understanding. It was great to meet so many people truly interested in what The Box was about. I had a bunch of fantastic conversations with passersby about reading, writing, following one’s bliss and remembering to live in the now. Not to mention all the wonderful authors at the fair who’s works covered everything from eye surgery to drug dealing.

All my fellow authors were supportive and encouraging and I think any one of there books would be well worth the read, one however stood out particularly for me. It was a book by a charming lady named Luzelenia Casanova called The Masquerade is Over. It is a captivating story that chronicles her own experiences with abusive relationships from childhood through getting involved in and eventually finding the strength to get out of an unhealthy romantic relationship.  I haven’t has a chance to finish it yet and I already can’t wait for the second book she said she was working on. Luze is also working on organizing a charity masquerade ball for October 2014, all proceeds to be donated to victims of domestic violence of all types. I told Luze I would be happy to help her in anyway I could and I am not ashamed to admit that I am doing that now by letting you all know about her fantastic book and her admirable mission.

If you feel so inclined please help Luze in her mission to educate and eradicate domestic violence by looking up her book online The Masquerade is Over.
