If you follow me on other social media sites you probably saw I was off in Nashville, Tennessee signing at Utopia Con 2017. Sadly, it was the sixth and final year of this con and only the second time I attended. I saw old friends, made new ones, and met some very cool and incredible people. Finally meeting friends I'd only spoken to on social media was the best thing ever! I have some pictures to share with you...
Here I am with Peggy Martinez (left) Author and owner of Lit Cube. She's the sweetest thing ever to exist. I bought a pair of Elizabeth and Darcy dolls from her, and I can't wait to post pics on Instagram to show them to you... if I ever unpack.
The ever so lovely Cambria Hebert, best selling Author of #Nerd series, is so nice! I'd only spoken to her online. She sold out of book one, #Nerd, before I got to her.
*insert very sad face here*
Jennifer L. Armentrout (right), author of so many USA Today and NYT bestselling book series, was sitting right behind me at the Utopia Con Awards. She took home several well-deserved prizes.
You may have heard of her book series: Lux, Titan, Dark Element, Covenant...
I got to meet Isaac Marion, NYT bestselling author of the Warm Bodies Series. He signed tons of books, did interviews, and hosted a live commentary while a bunch of us watched the movie adaptation of his first book, Warm Bodies. He made me laugh a lot during an interesting dinner conversation. I approve of his quirky personality and highly recommend you follow him on
Also, buy his books: The New Hunger, Warm Bodies, The Burning World.
|Here I am with award winning author Tish Thawer (center) and my sister, Krystle (right), who I dragged along to help me at my table. Tish is so down to earth and beautiful inside and out. We talked till 2am after the awards after party. |
You should follow her on Facebook and Twitter because I say so.
NYT Bestseller Amy Harmon was my neighbor during the signing events. We sat together at the Utopia Con Awards. Amy is sweet and humble and all around a beautiful person. She was so surprised to have won several awards. I wasn't too surprised she did. I mean, she's fabulous!
I left the con on Sunday morning, very early. I did manage to gather a some Utopia Con swag. You can enter for a chance to win below. Thanks for stopping by!
