Pay It Forward Retreat- 2015

Have you ever been surrounded by a group of people who shared the same goals and dreams as you? At least once in your life, you need to.

I had the privilege of meeting some amazing people at the Pay It Forward Indie Author Retreat in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was hosted by Danielle Allen and Kendall Gray, two amazing indie authors that are not only talented, but hilarious and fun too.

I met my friend and writing partner Jules Dixon and roomed with the anti-romantic, awesome F. Bradshaw .

I *stalked* Stacy Kestwick (author of Wet– Loved it!) and had the best dinner conversation about piercings with Eric R. Asher. I’m telling you, it was the best weekend!

And not only because there was booze involved (although that did add to the fun). No, how I felt leaving Sunday afternoon changed me. I learned so much to help launch Playing House. I left invigorated and confident in my work, which I’ll admit, I hadn’t been feeling so much.

It was exactly the push I needed to get those final revisions done. Within that week, I had Playing House sent off to my editor and we set the official release date (Sept. 1st!!!!)

Life is good, people. Life. Is. Good
