Author Brings the Path of the Forgiven at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 12-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Abbey Elliott , author of the fiction book Path of the Forgiven 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.
Abbey Elliott is fond of fiction. She is a creative person who draws ideas from her imagination and the world around her to formulate her work. She lives in North Central Michigan; she is married and is a mother of three. She wrote Path of the Forgiven, to relay the different struggles that people encounter. The book contains a relatable story that centers the lives of Quinton Foster and Malory Rice; their journey towards overcoming the pains of their past; and how God's power works on them. Will Quinton get his life straightened around? Will Malory continue to cling to God when her past catches up with her?
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 Elliott and her piece, Path of the Forgiven. 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, Abbey Elliott'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."
