Kansas Book Festival - "I Do" Memoir & Corner Confessions

  • Topeka State Capitol

The '2017 Kansas Book Festival' is on September 9, 2017 (9am to 5pm) at the Kansas State Capitol in Topeka, KS.  Both the "I Do" Memoir & 'Corner Confessions - A Novel' will be available...  And perhaps a backstory or two from both of these books, too!

The "I Do" Memoir is filled with humorous tales from 15+ years of personally being a professional wedding videographer - I've seen A LOT of things!  Think of it as 'America's Funniest Wedding Videos' in book form.  If you like 'funny', you'll like this book!

As for 'Corner Confessions', a few of the stories are from real people although the names and particulars have been changed.  The other stories have been pieced together or constructed by what has been described as a 'vivid imagination.'  With that description, you can only imagine what you will read in these confessions....  It's a hard book to put down!

                                                                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Everyone has that one secret… that one skeleton in their closet… which will never see the light of day. No psychiatrist, priest, spouse, or best friend will ever hear this secret, yet the urge to share this information can be found in most people’s natural psyche… People want to share their experience with others… They want to tell someone their deep, dark secret. Although this secret rides on the subconscious – scratching at the surface to be revealed, it’s most often too embarrassing, or horrifying, or scandalous…

What better way to get that secret off the mind, and out of the closet than to tell someone who is a complete stranger? Someone who will not judge what has been said, and what has been done? This method is safe, anonymous, and there is no accountability or judgment – and if there is, the keeper of the secret can simply walk away.

Meet 14 individuals who have decided to clean at least one skeleton out of their closet by confiding in a complete stranger whom they meet at a local coffee shop. Unassuming and safe with no judgments passed, learn about these secrets first hand, as if you were a fly on the wall listening in during their confession.

EVERYONE HAS A SECRET. WHAT’S YOURS?

A story about stories, Corner Confessions is an intriguing tale of secrets and the humans who keep them….and of the sheer and utter relief one feels once unburdened by them. The confessions are riveting and the characters relaying them are fascinating, from the self proclaimed town liar, to the middle aged unobtrusive super hero. Ms. Hall has the ability and talent of being completely conversational and engaging so that her readers feel as if they are hearing these confessions in person over tea and crumpets rather than simply reading words on a page. One is quite easily drawn into the web of the stories she weaves.
