Indiebookfest was one of those events in your life that you are glad you didn’t miss. I was worried – okay, terrified – about the storm hitting my home because of my family being there, but everything turned out okay, thank goodness. With the kids back home, my hubby on the other side of the state, and me in Orlando, you can imagine how torn I was feeling – think Hurricane Susan! Thankfully, I met some amazing authors and readers who were determined to still come so at least I wasn’t alone (thank you, Marie, for your ‘I’m in the lobby’ post!). I can’t say enough about how much it meant to have Jessie Collins and Valdora and Jerry Ward there to help me on Saturday! It was incredible and I couldn’t have done it without them!
Thank you again everyone for being there while I was quietly, and sometimes not so quietly, freaking out. Hugs!
The room with the crafts is the one I sponsored. I was so worried no one would come. It was filled to capacity and a HUGE hit! You can see Marie with the items she made. She was so excited! She made a book charm and a dragonling pendant.
It was wonderful to meet super-readers like Linda who drove 4 hours one way with the returning traffic for the hurricane just to see me!
My fans were a huge hit. I’ve got people posting them on FB and coming up to me and thanking me for the swag, especially the fan!
I’m also thrilled to say that all 65 of my handmade Dragon Lollipops were snatched up!
I also have everyone at IBF addicted to FB Live! LOL.
I can’t wait to introduce you to two amazing authors whom I met at IndieBookFest 2016! Hurricane Matthew was having fun with our internet connection so stick with us with the video goes in and out for a moment at one point.
