Curiosity Quills Carnival - Starting Next Week

UPDATE: July 7
I need booth workers! If you have a fascinating character from your book, WIP or pre-published manuscript and are interested in hosting a carnival booth, please let me know.

PS~ By booth workers, I simply need your permission to use the character from your book or WIP to "host" each book. If you need something clarified or have any questions, just ask in the comments below!

What booths? Here is what I have scheduled so far:

Face Painting
Scavenger Hunt
Ferris Wheel
Carousel Ride
Duck Pond
Dart and Balloon Throw
Ring Toss
Bottle Throw
Cotton Candy and Candy Apples, Caramel Popcorn
Ticket Booth
Strong Man Booth
Side Shows
Haunted House
House of Mirrors
Roller Coaster

Sound Fun? Interested? I need YOUR help if this Carnival is going to be a success. So what are you waiting for? Sign up in the comment section below! I will be posting details of each booth tomorrow, plus examples of what you can expect at each booth. Oh! the suspense is killing me!!! Nothing will cost you anything but a little time, say 10 minutes? Hurry, hurry! Get your tickets! Sign up.

That's right! There's so much going on next week here at Ink in the Book I think I may go temporarily insane. Shoooo! The month of July will be full of fun contests, scavenger hunts, author interviews, and soooo much more. We hope to have lots and lots of fun. But it won't be fun if no one visits, so mark your calendars!

We also have events still going on with Sapphire Star Publishing!!!!

And a tour set up with author MaryLu Tyndall!!!!

And author HART Johnson will be here with a mini mystery festival!!!!

And author ELANA Johnson will be here!!!

Sounds exciting, huh?

Starting Monday, July 9th, we will be hosting the CQ Carnival! I will be posting all the details on Saturday, but this early post is to find out if anyone might be interested in taking part of the carnival FerrisWheel Ride. Those interested will need to post an article on their own blog. The article needs to be about WRITING. It can be anything to do with writing such as character development, ideas for creative and inventive settings, plot creation, ANYTHING as long as it is about writing.

Then, you will send me the link to the article and I will post the links on my blog.

So, how about it? Anyone interested, please leave me a comment so I can know how to plan for this event. The blogfest starts Monday, but the FerrisWheel Ride isn't scheduled to start until AUGUST 6.

  8. Hi Talynn. I just discovered your blog thanks to Sharon and would love to participate in the Ferris Wheel as well as maybe a booth, though I am not exactly sure what the booth entails. Either way, sounds like fun and a good way to get some motivation for blog posts, which I really could use!
