At Morristown Festival of Books once again! Talk 1 was on romance - a conversation between Meg Cabot and Tessa Bailey! So fun it was like hanging out with two girlfriends. Can't wait to read No Judgments and Fix Her Up! #morristownfestivalofbooks #mfob #mfob2019 #bookfestival #authortalk #romantsy

Final stack of books I had signed today. Only purchased 4 on site (Max Tilt, Night Gaunts, Bobby Kennedy, The Masterpiece). Please note that Ann M Martin was not in attendance, but BSC ghostwriter Peter Lerangis was (meeting him was the highlight of my day).

tjwill Awesome! 1y
Reviewsbylola I didn‘t realize BSC had ghostwriters!! Off to google. 1y
Zelma @Reviewsbylola She wrote the first 32 (give or take). Then moved on to other books and projects. 1y
bookandcat @Reviewsbylola yes the dedication page always shows who was the ghostwriter (author acknowledges...). Ellen Miles did all of the mysteries, Nola Thacker was a popular one, etc. Martin did all of the outlines and helped proof all manuscripts, but she could not keep up with a more than a book a month publishing schedule. David Levithan was n intern at the time and was in charge of keeping the "BSC BIBLE" updated so books stayed consistent. 1y
