Sitting in a hotel, about to fall asleep, because tomorrow I fly home to Hawaii. Yesterday, I had my first book signing. Leading up to it that morning, my stomach was in knots and laughter was easy, but it came from a nervous place in my chest.
I was so pleased to be sitting near some amazing authors who had done signings before. They helped me with a lot of little things that I had never known or thought about.
That’s one thing about being an author. I’ve met some of the most amazing and giving people.
And I loved the conversations with them as much as I enjoyed meeting readers. Both sides of a very inspiring and delightful coin.
Living in Hawaii, it takes quite a bit of effort to get to these events, but I have to say it was worth everything it took to get there!
Keynote Speeches from authors as inspiring as they are talented… from Marina Adair’s inspiring story of love to Denise Grover Scott’s tremendous story that rang true in my head and chest and helped me see that my own struggle is shared by others.
Romance books inspire countless people and those same stories inspire the authors who write them.
When I get home, I will add more to my blog, but I just wanted to let you know that I’m going home with a brand new focus and inspiration.
