I just returned from the Bahamas, where I joined the Book Splashers on a five day cruise full of fun events where readers, bloggers, editors, authors and cover models all had a chance to meet and mingle. It was such a unique event to be a part of. I met so many incredible readers who gave me an awesome list of “must reads.” I also had the opportunity to meet and talk to so many incredibly talented and accomplished authors and industry professionals. They were all so kind and generous in sharing their wealth of knowledge. (along with the occasional fun and wild story!) It was a privilege to have the opportunity to be a part of this event and thank you for the “Favorite New Author Award” at the Bookie Awards. Being a part of an event that celebrates how crazy we all are for writing was an honor, being recognized was icing on the cake.
A big thank you to Felicia Lynn and L. J. Voss for organizing this wonderful event and for letting me be a part of it. And thank you to all the wonderful sponsors; For the Love of Books, Big Peach Travel, Concierge Literary Promotions, Lily Rose Editing, Vicki Green, Dawn Walters, FuriousFotog and Eric Battershell Photography, for helping make this event as awesome as it was. And thank you to Royal Caribbean for not kicking all us crazy book lovers off the ship!
