Jan Bozarth at FaerieCon 2011

FairieCon is coming up Nov. 4th-6th and registration is now open; I was a speaker and presenter last November in Baltimore. It was so much fun to see tens of thousands in fairy costumes and “eating up” anything and everything fairy. I spoke to girls, moms, and dads about my books and things to come in the Fairy Godmother Academy realm. They invited me to come speak to kids on the east coast.
