Book Bash 2013

(I know I am behind in blogging about this but BETTER LATE THAN NEVER RIGHT!!!)

Some of you may already know and have seen my posting on Facebook but for those of you who don't I attended the first ever BOOK BASH in Orlando, FL on June 29, 2013. OMG!! It was so much fun!!

I don't know how I missed the announcement and postings leading up to the event but somehow I did and I didn't find out about it until the DAY BEFORE!! Once I knew about it I was dying to go because a lot of the authors who were attending are some of my absolute favs!! However when I went to see about tickets it was sold out!! EEEKK!! Determined to go I hit up every social media outlet at my disposed and at 11pm the night before I scored a ticket!!!! Yay!!!!

I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to a fellow Beautiful Disaster fan, Kelli!! She is the admin for the Team Travis Maddox fan page on Facebook. It is because of her that THIS Twilighters Dream Came True!!! I got to go, meet some of my favorite authors, get my books signed and even got a picture with each of them. :)

Below are some of my favorite and treasured pictures. EEKK!! It truly was EPIC to meet these amazing ladies!! I still can't believe it!

One other really cool thing that happened while I was there was I ran into Ana from the Owl Always Be Reading blog.

I hung out with her and met her awesome friends which definitely made the day more enjoyable! I look forward to running into them at the next book signing! :)
