But the best part was seeing all of my writing friends! Here are some pics to recap the weekend.
|So fun meeting online friends in person for the first time! Me with Amy Drown and Jill Buteyn.|
|Fangirl moment! I got to chat with Becky Wade several times. Love her and her books!|
|Love these ladies! Me with Jennifer Major, Jeanne Takenaka, and Gabrielle Meyer.|
|I got to play the Tin (wo)Man in a My Book Therapy rendition of |
The Wizard of Oz. Here I am with Dorothy, aka Susan May Warren.
|Me and the Cowardly Lion, aka Jim Rubart, getting into character.|
|Me with the agents of Oz, Amanda Luedeke and Chip MacGregor.|
|Waiting for pitches...|
|I got all dressed up for the gala, since I was a Genesis finalist. |
I didn't win but it was such a privilege to be there!
|Me with some of the My Book Therapy crew.|
|Me and the Jills (Jill Kemerer and Jill Buteyn), two other Genesis finalists!|
|Love me some Katie Ganshert! I got to have lunch with her one day.|
Heart of gold, that one.
|Me and Gabe! We've been at every major writing event together so far in|
our careers. It's awesome walking this road with her.
|Jessica Patch and I get silly around each other.|
|Snapped a pic with Bethany House editor, Raela Schoenherr. Sweetest girl ever!|
|Poor Ash may have had on a cast, but that didn't stop her radiant smile! Love her!|
|Rachel Hauck won Mentor of the Year. She totally deserves it. She's made a huge |
difference in my writing career this year.
|My GLAM girls!|
|Me with Joanne Bischof.|
|Me and Jess being normal for once. :P|
|Great group of ladies right here.|
|My craft partner, Melissa Tagg, and I hamming it up for the camera.|
|We can be normal...|
|Gabe and I participating in genre night. She dressed up historical and |
I dressed up like Stacy, a character who participates in a televised
singing competition in my book The Song Inside!
