Okay, so I went to Book Bash in Orlando and all I can say is WOW!
It started out in the lobby of the hotel when we checked in. We saw authors milling around and several checking in, one of whom was Jacinda Wilder and her husband. We volunteered to help Ana Ivies pack swag bags in her room. The next morning, we went to Book Bash and joined the throngs of book fans eager to get the autographs of their favorite authors.
My first signing was the author of Rock the Heart Michelle Valentine
Next on my list was the author of Devoured Emily Snow
I enjoyed chatting with her and later saw and spoke with her at Crave and Angstfest. She’s a sweetheart!
I then made my way around to see Laura Kaye
I was so thrilled to run into a member of my own street team, Esther, and was so tickled to sign a shirt for her and for her friend 🙂
Working with Laura, all the way from California, was the author of Love Realized Melanie Codina
Melanie and I are very close and she even mentioned me in the dedication of her book. She was gracious enough to sign her book for me in exchange for a copy of mine 😉
I then spotted an author, Nicole Edwards
She is very special to a mutual friend of ours and I just had to stop by for a chat. She is an amazing person and I’m honored to share Becky’s top shelf with her.
My next few stops were with Aleatha Romig, Ivan Rusilko, and Jamie McGuire
They were all amazing!!!
I then had a special mission for one of my street teamers, Becky.
I needed to get all three books from C.J. Roberts
I saw a few more people and then was headed back to the room when I ended up in the same elevator as Kristin Ashley
She was an absolute doll and posed for pictures with my friends and I.
It was an event I’ll never forget and I’m honored to have met such amazing authors. My dream is to be among their ranks at Book Bash someday.
