November 2nd, I took a road trip down to the tip of Florida. I was selected to join 9 other Florida authors whose books were released in 2013. We sat as a team, sharing our stories, and taking questions from the audience on the writing and publishing process.
Now, I have to be honest when I say I was extremely excited and nervous to be on a panel with such accomplished authors. I actually saw the exit for the Florida Keys, and immediately began speculating the story I could spin to tell my husband why I wasn’t coming home that night.
My beautiful cousin Clara came down to support me in this venture. She was to become my official photographer and videographer. We spent an awesome day together, followed by a delicious meal with wine, appetizers, coffee and several desserts. It was a day I will never forget.
A big thank you to the Society of Children’s Book Authors and Illustrators, Books and Books, and Gaby Triana for having me!
Here are some youtube videos and pictures to enjoy…
