Highlights included meeting authors RL Stine (!!!!), Gwenda Bond, Obert Skye, and so many others. The more big-name authors I meet, the more impressed I am at how down to earth and nice so many of them are. Being a part of this incredibly supportive community is such an honor.
Maybe my favorite part of the weekend was sitting on a panel called "Authors are Fangirls, too." My fellow panelists included Carey Corp, Lorie Langdon, Kathryn Ormsbee, and JC Morrows. We discussed all sorts of important topics, such as our celebrity crushes, casting for our novels, creating playlists and Pinterest boards for inspiration while writing, and which show we'd walk onto if given the chance.
We had all sorts of fun and decided that, regarding specifics, what happens in the Fangirl panel stays in the Fangirl panel.
Chris Evans and Chris Pratt may have come up.
Maybe more than once.
Here are some pictures from my amazing weekend. I can't wait to do this again!
