Where do I even start? COME TO PENNED CON NEXT YEAR! This was hands down one of the most fun conventions I've ever been to as a writer, or a reader. I met more awesome people than I could possibly hope to list here. Even more amazing? The convention raised over $11,000.00 for the Action For Autism charity! Thanks to everyone who was there and helped make it an unforgettable experience.
A few quick highlights:
I told Colleen Hoover I was going to get a T-shirt made of the photo we took with Tarryn Fisher in Oklahoma. She seemed skeptical, so I showed up to our panel wearing it. Oh yeah, did I mention I had a panel with COLLEEN HOOVER? :)
Not just Colleen. Mark Coker of Smashwords (who's an encyclopedia of publishing knowledge) was on our panel, along with these two awesome people, Jasinda and Jack Wilder. Jasinda gave a stellar, inspiring keynote speech at Penned Con. Go get The Missionary. It's a visceral look at the terrifying problem of human trafficking. It's dark, but there's more to it. You will not be disappointed!
Tara Sivec. Passion and Ponies. I've had a few people tell me how hilarious this book is, but I just didn't understand until
