Home Again, Home Again!


I’m home and full of ideas for a few new stories. The conference had some highs and lows, but overall an excellent conference!
What started off as a low at dinner on Friday night turned into an amazing high. The guest speaker stated he was a channeler. For me the speech was a tad sad and depressing. My friends love him, so I felt this is all personal taste. My parents always taught me to be respectful so I stayed and am I glad I did. After he was done my friends said let’s go up and talk to him. I didn’t have much I wanted to hear from him, but a dear friend of mine did. She wanted closer for a very difficult situation. As I stood in line I told her she may never get closer. I just felt it was best for her to be prepared that closure isn’t always available. Boy did Roland Comtois prove me wrong. He gave her so much closer he had me in tears. He also gave another friend some much needed information.
As for me he told me my dad needed me. I hadn’t spoken to him in over a month. I called and left him a vm and he called me back yesterday. Turns out my father had thrown his back out two weeks ago and was suffering. We spoke last night and I feel much better.
One of the highlights of my Friday night was meeting Julia Barrett in person. She is beautiful on the inside and out. She’s an amazing online friend so to see her, talk to her and give her a hug (or five) was incredible for me. Love ya J!
Another online friend I had the honor of finally meeting in person was Penny Watson. Folks she’s so funny and gorgeous in her tiara. I enjoyed her Promo workshop, her tiara and her ability to sell all her Christmas books at the book signing. (okay, so I was a bit jealous). ;)
That’s it for today. Tomorrow I’ll talk about Saturday and my agent appointment.
Happy Monday!

  4. Hey sweetie - lovely to finally meet you in person. I hope your dad feels better soon. Penny's a hoot, isn't she? We definitely must do this again and I want to hear about your agent appointment!
