Byte-Size Blair | October 20

We’re back with Byte-Size Blair, our weekly wrap-up of all things social media. If you’re not already following us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, give us a look.

We had a great time at Southern Festival of Books despite the torrential rain. Distributed authors from NewSouth Books (Clifton Taulbert and John Pritchard) and Hub City Press (Jon Sealy and Lee Zacharias) were a big hit, as were new titles from Bob Garner, Randy Russell, and the minds behind Badass Civil War Beards. Here are our top five social media updates from the past few weeks.

1.) First of all, thanks again to everyone who came out for our 60th! Feel free to tag yourself in any of our photos from the event, all viewable on Facebook.

2.) Sharknado? More like Sharkicane! A rare up-close feeding frenzy was spotted on Cape Lookout last week. To be honest, we much prefer the area’s wild horses.

3.) Bob Garner is touring the state with his latest book, Foods That Make You Say Mmm-mmm, and the Herald-Sun gave it a great review!

4.) Have you entered our messy desk contest yet? The winner gets cash and two runners-up get gift certificates!

5.) Throughout October, we’re selling some of our favorite spooky titles for 30% off on our website. Plus, orders over $30 get free shipping! That’s a lot of folklore-bang for your buck!

In lieu of an adorable animal photo, we give you this scene from Southern Festival, during the most torrential wave of the weekend-long downpour. Thank goodness all the readings and panels were happening inside!
