When I arrived and checked in, I was greeted by a wonderful group of folks who assisted me with locating my table and even carrying some of my stuff. Before I even got to my table, I saw so many familiar faces of my author friends from New Jersey and from the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia ("DMV") area. Right away, I knew that the day would simply be fabulous. This included being an audience member of various panels and even being on one myself ("Keeping Women's Fiction and Romance Alive").
There was so much energy in the place: meeting new authors and avid book book lovers, swaying to the sounds the DJ was playing (yep, there were times when I forgot where I was - lol).
Overall, it was a great day. Check out some photos from the even!
