Just wanted to let everyone (Especially if you're in the Alabama area, or are willing to travel) about a really great event taking place October 8th and 9th at The Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center. One of the speakers is going to be Author Rachel Hawkins. Rachel Hawkins is the author of Hex Hall. You can find my review for Hex Hall HERE.
Here is some more information on this event TAKEN DIRECTLY from the website: ACW 2010
The Auburn Writers Conference
The Auburn Writers Conference reaches a wide array of literary enthusiasts by cultivating an environment that welcomes all writers, readers, and interested others.

Hawkins is a former teacher who left teaching to take a chance and get serious about finishing that book she'd always wanted to write. Her first book, Hex Hall , was the result of that leap of faith. Hex Hall is her first in a series from Disney Hyperion. She's a graduate of Auburn University and lives in Alabama with her husband and three-year-old son. She's currently working on the sequel to Hex Hall.
So if you live in the area or love to travel for events such as these, you still have time to Register. :0)
