I'm hoping some of you can help me -- what is a typical/standard fee for storytellers at regional conferences/festivals? And what part of the country are you answering about?

Hello Everyone;

Please check your freindship request and either accept them or reject them. But please don't let them sit idle. If one hundred people do that, if keeps others from making new friends. Just go to your friends tabs, the little silloettes at the top right of your page, under your name and click it. I expect if you haven't found it by now... you may have many pending new friends.

Just a tip.

Buck, the book is out!!! Order your copy. OMG. It's HUGE. 8.5X11, nearly 400 pages, and 30 chapters of tons of useful information. You're gonna love it. I guarantee!

Warmly, Dianne

We have talked about this before... I still want the first book off the press. Signed of course and you can stick a hundred dollar bill in there for me to use as a book mark! Hope you get to go home soon... Hope you have no damage.
