I spent this past week in Las Vegas at the 20BooksVegas conference. It’s a huge, very well planned and organized conference specifically for indie authors of all sorts.
I will admit to not always being the first person to volunteer for conferences. A large part of this is simply that conferences tend to be full of people (go figure) and, much like Mr. Darcy, “I have not the talent that some people possess of conversing easily with those that I have never seen before.”
Of course, Lizzie would tell me I needed to practice.
She’s probably right.
I did a little of that at the conference and though I took a lot of selfies with friends old and new they all appear to be on said friends’ phones. So, um, if you’re one of them, shoot me an email with pics? :)
I DID get to meet Valerie Comer and her husband. It was lovely. Even better than that, we went to see Cirque du Soleil on the strip and that was magical. I also got a chance to meet Carol Moncado (who used to admin here with us) and so many other amazing authors that I’m not going to name any more lest I leave someone out and then have to hang my head in shame forever.
