Gilmore is the author of two books, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen and The Improper Life of Bezellia Grove. Salvation was released a few years ago, and was set in my old stomping grounds (sort of) of Ringgold, Georgia. I went to college in Chattanooga, Tennessee, right over the state line from Fort Oglethorpe and Ringgold, Georgia. In my last year of school, I moved to Ft. O and lived just minutes from Ringgold.

The Southern Festival of Books will take place October 8-10 in downtown Nashville at Legislative Plaza. In addition to book events such as author readings and signings, there will also be tents set up with book vendors and publishing houses from all over the south. Also, look for children's entertainment, musical guests, cooking demonstrations, and food vendors from unique Nashville area restaurants.
Also, each week leading up to the Festival, there will be a Twitter contest. Winners get a ticket to be first in line for the author of their choice during the author's signing time. I won the first week by being the first person to guess that week's author using SFB's Twitter clues!
