So in a few short weeks (June 27-30) I’ll be packing up my bags and my books and heading to NASHVIILLE, TN for UtopYA <<< That takes you to there web site.
Now a UtopYa is a conference for female ‘Young Adult’ writers and readers to learn from a panel of experts about the genre. Exhibitors, like myself, will have tables set up with books to sell and SWAG to give out to those readers who attend. This link shows you some of my SWAG.
The event is sold out, and has been for some time. Over 300 people will be milling about at this event, all ready to talk about what they love: reading and writing.
I’m supper excited about attending, except for one thing: I’ll be flying out there. By. Myself.
So what, you ask is so bad about that? THIS:
I haven’t flown on a plane since my kiddos were born. I know, I know, I’m more likely to die in a car crash than a plane, doesn’t make me any less scared. So while I’m THRILLED to be AT the event, getting there and back home is going to give me an anxiety attack.
Gulp. Who is going to hold my hand while I squeeze the daylights out of it? Sorry random stranger that happens to sit next to me. You’re gonna be in for a bumpy ride.
