I don’t know about you, but I just love hanging out with others in the Romance book world. This past weekend, I had the chance to do that again for the first time in 18 months! I was a featured author at the Space Coast Book Lovers conference in Cape Canaveral, Florida and it was awesome! This is a well-organized and well-run event that I highly recommend.This conference is so unique. First, it is reader-focused, so if you love reading books, you’ll love this one. Second, it has some awesome events that allow readers and authors to hang out in fun ways. There’s a meet and greet, an escape room, painting, crafts, and more. In fact, I held a line dance class! Third, it has a superb book signing event. I sold out of two titles – Heart of Frankenstein and Passion of Sleepy Hollow. Luckily, I had all 28 other titles there so there were still plenty to choose from. This year we had a wonderful, funny and touching keynote speaker, Elicia Hyder, who really captured the feelings of those in attendance. And last, SCBL has a fantastic themed after-party with gorgeous decorations and great costumes. Of course, at that party we had to do some line dancing. In addition, it’s held at a hotel with a pool and waterfall. What’s not to love? If that’s not good enough, Cocoa Beach is just down the road, and if the weather is good, we get to see rockets launch.
But the best part of this conference are the people. From the organizers to the volunteers to the other authors and readers, the community is full of happy, warm, lovely people. It actually makes it hard to leave. I am absolutely going back in 2022 for my third year. This conference can’t be beat! Just sayin’ 😉
