Author Takes the Cloud Riders at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 16-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Penny Clauss , author of the fiction piece Cloud Riders 2: The Overlands Visited 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.

Penny Clauss started writing when she was in high school. It was when she wrote about her mother on Mother's Day when her teachers encouraged her to write. It was not until she had established her medical profession that she started to pick up her pen again and pursued writing. Being an avid reader, she obtained inspiration from so many pieces that she had read and now she shares her own insights of faith in many inspirational writings. She has written articles for a small town newspaper, articles for an online Christian professional publication, and has published poems in different venues. And now she brings her readers a well-written fiction piece Cloud Riders 2: The Overlands Visited. The story centers the Ka'star and Ailyean who set out to fulfill their destiny. Along with their companions, they venture from the Overlands mountain top kingdoms to the Clans of the Underlands. They then discover that their places of birth have been betrayed and their people were oppressed. A realization come to their mind about powers that are set to destroy their freedom. Will Ka'star and Ailyean keep their freedom for the people?

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 Clauss and her piece, Cloud Riders 2: The Overlands Visited. 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, Penny Clauss'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."
