What a weekend this was. I had a great 20th birthday on Friday and got to see a friend I haven’t seen in forever. Sunday I heard from a potential podcast co-host (here we go again…). It’s always hopeful when I get in contact with one. I know I left out Saturday. I did that on purpose.
I wanted to talk to you about Saturday the most of all.
On Saturday, I had the opportunity to go to IndieVengeance Day 2014. What is IndieVengeance Day, you may ask? Well, it’s an author signing event where independently published authors get to sign books for everyone that stops by, and you get to talk to them. I have a blast.
There are two conversations that really stick out for me — the conversation with Scott Morgan and the conversation with Amber Jerome~Norrgard.
I talked to Scott Morgan about writing. He said that it’s easy for him to get published now (I know, so encouraging, right? Stay with me), but fifteen years ago, when he was a nobody, it wasn’t easy for him at all. I told him about the book I was writing, and he sounded really interested. Of course, that may have been for my benefit, but hey, if he’s interested, who cares? I even bought a book from him. One that helps with character development. Yay, I need all the help I can get!
The conversation with Amber Jerome~Norrgard was a little more personal than that. She and I have gotten to know each other a little bit through Facebook, and I am so thankful. I asked her about her book that has been mentioned on a podcast she used to host, and she said that it has been put on hold again. Unfortunate, but completely understandable. The name of the book is called Searching for Ellen. I really want that book. It’s about her search for her biological mother.
My friend Matt went with me on Saturday. He got a couple books that he felt he could really connect with. I’m glad he was able to find those.
All in all, I bought five books. I wish I could have bought from every single author… I just didn’t have enough cash!
It was a great day. I won’t deny that for a second. I’m so grateful I was able to go.
