What Every Writer Needs to Know
Award-winning author, event producer, and founder of The Book-In-Hand Roadshow kicks-off the 2014 Gold Country Book Festival with a lively presentation about book parts. “People usually focus on writing their book and don’t think about the other written elements until the story is done,” she said. “I’ll talk about the different book parts and show you why it’s important to work on them as you go….really…it will make your life easier and you may discover a gold nugget in the process.”

MEET THE BIH AUTHORS... A roadshow favorite, Tony Barcellos joins Ingrid and Christina at The B-I-H Roadshow Booth.

ANTHONY BARCELLOS grew up speaking Portuguese on his grandfather's dairy farm in Porterville, a small town in Tulare County. He now teaches math full-time at American River College. Tony said, "You know you’ve opened the floodgates when your sister says, ‘I’m afraid you’re going to get into a lot of trouble’.”

Land of Milk and Money is the story of the Francisco family, Portuguese immigrants from the Azores who settle on a dairy farm in California's Central Valley. The    legacy of one generation becomes a point of contention as the members of the next generation begin to compete to inherit and control their heritage, which includes herds of cattle and tracts of farm land. A courtroom confrontation over the family matriarch’s will is at center stage as the contending factions discover that the old lady had plans of her own for securing her legacy.
