I was invited by Indie Book Awards president to participate in a wonderful conference located in Washington DC from July 20-25th. Met many authors and publisheres. There were thousands of exibitors and shoppers. I have never been in such a huge building as this one (Walter E. Washington Conference Center in DC) Had time to see many monuments, too. Traffic was unbelievable, but we walked almost all the time when we went out of the hotel and conference center.
