Utopia Con 2017 Pics + Giveaway

Hello Readers!

If you follow me on other social media sites you probably saw I was off in Nashville, Tennessee signing at Utopia Con 2017. Sadly,  it was the sixth and final year of this con and only the second time I attended. I saw old friends, made new ones, and met some very cool and incredible people. Finally meeting friends I'd only spoken to on social media was the best thing ever! I have some pictures to share with you...



Here I am with Peggy Martinez (left) Author and owner of Lit Cube. She's the sweetest thing ever to exist. I bought a pair of Elizabeth and Darcy dolls from her, and I can't wait to post pics on Instagram to show them to you... if I ever unpack.


The ever so lovely Cambria Hebert, best selling Author of #Nerd series, is so nice! I'd only spoken to her online. She sold out of book one, #Nerd, before I got to her.
*insert very sad face here*


Jennifer L. Armentrout (right), author of so many USA Today and NYT bestselling book series, was sitting right behind me at the Utopia Con Awards. She took home several well-deserved prizes. 
You may have heard of her book series: Lux, Titan, Dark Element, Covenant...




I got to meet Isaac Marion, NYT bestselling author of the Warm Bodies Series. He signed tons of books, did interviews, and hosted a live commentary while a bunch of us watched the movie adaptation of his first book, Warm Bodies. He made me laugh a lot during an interesting dinner conversation. I approve of his quirky personality and highly recommend you follow him on

Also, buy his books: The New Hunger, Warm Bodies, The Burning World.




Here I am with award winning author Tish Thawer (center) and my sister, Krystle (right), who I dragged along to help me at my table. Tish is so down to earth and beautiful inside and out. We talked till 2am after the awards after party.
You should follow her on Facebook and Twitter because I say so.


NYT Bestseller Amy Harmon was my neighbor during the signing events. We sat together at the Utopia Con Awards. Amy is sweet and humble and all around a beautiful person. She was so surprised to have won several awards. I wasn't too surprised she did. I mean, she's fabulous! 

Find Amy on Facebook and Twitter.

I left the con on Sunday morning, very early. I did manage to gather up some Utopia Con swag. You can enter for a chance to win below. International entires welcome. Thanks for stopping by!
