KABAM Book Festival 2016

What a trip…and I do mean what a trip. The 4 hour drive was almost a piece of cake. If it hadn’t been for the wind and a trucker who really wanted me off the road it would have been uneventful 😉



So I got to Kingman without any trouble, did I mention wind and truckers? Anywhoo, checked into my hotel and asked where exactly Metcalfe Park was. The lady looked out the window and pointed….I was literally across the street. Within walking distance. So Saturday morning I walked over. The festival was just starting and people were still getting their tables set up. The first table I came to just happened to be my dear friend Victoria Kaer.

 
At the table next to Tori were my friends Alexia Purdy and Katie Salidas

Well this one came out a little dark and you can’t really see these amazing ladies and if I try to brighten it up I lose the book covers. Anyway, My friends Deborah Dorchak and Wendi Kelly. Co-authors of the Bonds of Blood and Spirit saga. Deb lives in Las Vegas and Wendi in Chicagoland. 2 very amazing people and great friends. 
 
 
 
Check out the books..
 
Coming soon to the saga….
 
Storms
 
I actually got to hold it….
 
I was also introduced to Tom Keller, an author from Las Vegas, and I picked up his book “Return of the High Fae” I look forward to reading it.
 
 
 
 
It was a really great time. I went home with more books than I can possibly read in one lifetime…ok not really I will read them all but still.
 
My give away loot
 
My precious….and the only reason I am still speaking to Katie….read the series to understand 😉
Glad I brought a big bag 
 
This was also in the stash I was given and as it turns out Lacey only lives about 15 minutes from me.
 
So there you have it, a fun filled day spent with friends and books. What else is there.

A Weekend in Vegas

Finally getting a chance to post some pictures from a very fun weekend.

The fun started with a 6 hour drive from my home in Arizona to Las Vegas, Aside from a little rain the trip was uneventful.

The first stop was at the famous Gold and Silver Pawn store.

Sadly none of the guys were there so we had to settle for pics with cardboard Rick.

The shop is pretty interesting. I’d never been. Wasn’t really interested but my friend wanted to go so we went.

That evening we had a great time with friends, I finally got to meet Wendi, and other writers at an authors round table. We discussed bringing your characters to life. It was very interesting and informative.

Finally Saturday came. The day I had been looking forward to for weeks.

The Vegas Valley Book Festival. I was so excited to get my Bonds of Blood and Spirit books signed again. But that would have to wait. The first stop was at Alexia Purdy and Katie Salidas’ table.

After I went in search of a couple other people I was looking for I got a message on my phone saying “Come back I need a picture with you!” LOL Ok Katie. So here is Cutie pie and I.

So then naturally I had to have one of both of the girls

After all that fun I was getting a little concerned because I couldn’t find Megan Duncan. I asked Katie if she’d seen her and was pointed in the general direction. Oddly I didn’t even think to get her picture. But I did get a book 🙂
