Author Brings Rouges at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 18-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Tommy Bell, author of the piece Rouges 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.
Tommy Bell pens Rouges, an enthralling fiction piece that brings readers to the depth of their imagination. Rouges presents a story set in the 90's era. It commences when these four men meet in the Chicago gay night scene. Meet Zane, a sex addict who comes all the way from Virginia to visit his ex, and then falls in love with the city. Here comes Manny, a serial dater who later finds out that he actually truly cares for someone. A German macho who confidently claims that he is God's gift to the world. Lastly, a prankster born-again Christian completes the list. Four men, four different stories. And when they cross path, together they battle the challenges of life and each of their relationships. And it looks like murder! Intense, astounding and edifying-every reader will find it impossible not to enjoy. Definitely a must-read only from Bell!
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 Bell and his piece, Tommy Bell. 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, Tommy Bell'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."
