Author of a Fiction Novel Joins the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 09-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Jill Curb, author of a fiction novel The Hourglass will be joining this year's AJC Decatur Book Festival, a community-based, non-profit event and largest independent festival in the country. Being renowned as one of the five largest festivals in the country, DBF continues to gather world-class authors as well as hundreds of thousands of festival-goers to enjoy book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children's area, live music, parade, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and others. These activities will be happening in and around the historic downtown Decatur square.

"We always knew Atlanta had a thriving writing and book community, but it needed a centerpiece to bring all the parts together," Tom Bell points out as he recalls the history of DBF. It was when Daren Wang hatched a hare-brained idea to establish a festival celebrating the spoken/written word that brought the other dreamers and believers together. Tom Bell — founding program director, Linda Harris, Richard Lenz, Alice Murray, Bill Starr and Judy Turner then began brewing the magic.

The DBF got rave reviews shortly after 18 months of hard work and dedication in volunteering full-time, until its commencement over Labor Day weekend back in 2006, which was attended by over 100 authors and 50, 000 people. The success of the event was contributed by the combination of supportive local businesses and restaurants, eager and able volunteers, and the ability to walk easily from venue to venue.

Jill Curb lives with her family on the West Coast. She is an attorney and a television production executive. Being a writer, she has always loved storytelling, and it has been continuously ignited by the natural curiosity and ability of children to learn through reading. It also became her inspiration to write this well-thought fictional piece. The book The Hourglass will definitely take the readers into the author’s depth imagination that centers two young brothers who are set to battle against evil in order to save their family, especially their mother who holds the key to saving the world. It involves giants and talking animals in a hidden paradise. Charlie and Cameron take a twist of relying on animals as much as humans, specifically a stray dog in order to keep things together to survive before time slips away. Will the two succeed?

BookBlastPro will represent the author at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The festival-goers and other authors will have the opportunity of getting first-hand information about Curb and her piece, The Hourglass. They will also get bookmarks and an opportunity of photo documentation which will be released after the event. The book selling will be announced at the event.

AJC Decatur Book Festival — Bookzilla, Jill Curb’s book and the rest of the fun activities will make this event a literary powerhouse that will delight the attendees and will make this annual event a huge success, as what Tom Bell expressed: "That's what the festival does best."
