Happy Halloween and #CBF2016 Recap!

Happy Halloween!

Sorry it’s been a little while since I’ve posted, I’ve been getting into a new groove over here and I’m happy to say I’m just about organized.

October 16th was Carolina Book Fest, and it was amazing! This was my third signing, and meeting readers and authors was still as exciting as the first time. I got to see some familiar faces, and some new ones, too! It’s super cool being able to put real faces to names I’ve only seen on Facebook.

Ok, and fangirl time…

I spent some time talking with Catherine Gayle and she’s just the sweetest person ever. If you like sports romance and haven’t read her Portland Storm series, start right now. Even if you don’t like sports romance, she’ll make you like it. Amazing stories, seriously. Check out her books on Amazon.

I also talked to Sawyer Bennett, who is just freaking awesome. She was actually the first author’s table I went to when I went to my very first signing as a reader, and I totally stuttered and spazzed and may have muttered something like, “I like your books. I’ve read them all.” But I’m not even sure I opened my mouth because I was star struck. Anyway, to have a conversation with her and talk books and writing…just wow. I redeemed myself to myself. And you can’t go wrong with Sawyer’s books, so check out her Amazon page and one-click any one of them. You won’t be disappointed. Ah-mazing.

My table was right beside Ariel Marie. We’ve been FB friends for a while now, but never met. So that was super cool. Our husbands also became BFFs at the event. Some serious separated at birth stuff going on there… Ha!

Hubs was a great assistant and we had a blast all weekend. I got to spend some time with Kim, one of the amazing organizers of the event. I also hung out with Jeannie, another one of my FB friends, while our husbands chatted about football. And at the Monster Mash, we met Thomas and Dominique (check out Thomas’ book here!). Great times, great people!

So, at Authors With Southern Charm in Charleston this summer, I was across the aisle from Steffy Rogers. We chatted some, but didn’t get to spend too much time together. We weren’t placed as closely at this event, but we caught up!

This is us at Roxbury, a nightclub in Charlotte. Yep, we had a Night at the Roxbury. It was a 90s themed club complete with 90s music and it was so much fun. We were there with a few other authors and readers.

Seriously, I had such an amazing time at this event! I hope I can make it next time!!
