We arrived at the Hyatt Regency Thursday evening and settled into a comfortable room overlooking a small courtyard with fountains of water shooting into the air.
The conference, a huge event, was fun, informative, but also overwhelming. I'm still trying to process everything I experienced. A few highlights:
- Jeanie and Clella, two of my Kindred Hearts, drove a couple hours each (one way) to have lunch with Mom and me. We had a great time chatting and laughing.
- I met my agent, Tamela Hancock Murray, for the first time in person, and ate breakfast with her and some of her other authors.
- I pitched my novel to two publishers and one wants to see the proposal.
- Free books!
Tomorrow we head down to the southern Ohio hills for a few days of internet-isolation and relaxation before Saturday's family reunion.
We're making memories with every mile that clicks over on that little Vibe's odometer.
