I had such a great time at For Love of Books and Florida in Sarasota, Florida. As always, I come back from these events feeling refreshed and motivated. I meet readers and authors and industry pros, learn new things, and end up with book ideas. I’ve been in such a rut lately, overwhelmed with stuff, and this trip was just what I needed!
A huge thank you to Kelly, Red, Jen, Cary, and everyone else who made this event as awesome as it was. The For Love of Books and Alcohol blog/group/queens are amazing and they put together a fantastic event. I will definitely be checking out another one before I see them in Dublin, Ireland in 2019!!
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for my very first signing as an author, coming up on June 4th in Jacksonville, Florida. I attended Sassy in Savannah back in October as a reader, and it was so much fun. I loved getting to meet authors and chatting about their books. Now, I’ll get to the on the other side of that for Sassy in Jacksonville, put on by the same organizers.
Check out this line up!
I’ve got my books and swag ready, and my event banner is on its way. I can’t wait to share my experience with you all afterwards. And pictures! I’ll be taking lots of pictures!
And what else makes this experience awesome? I get to meet a reader and friend, Marissa! We met about a year ago while I was doing a takeover, I’m pretty sure it was before Our Moon was even released. Anyway, I posted one of those meme games, the “Google your name and post the first meme that comes up” one…anyway, hers was “Marissa spelled backwards is Ass I Ram.” I just died, and to this day I use that game and tag her so I can experience the humor all over again. So we’re friends, fellow book and coffee addicts, and since she also lives in the Southeast, I invited her to come along as my assistant. I can’t wait to meet her in person and see what kind of trouble we get into. 😉
