When we arrived, the warm welcome we received made us feel right at home. Throughout the day, the activities were nonstop: the DJ was bumping old school music, folks were singing karaoke, line dancing, playing bingo, etc.
All the authors (from left in the photo below: Dionne Peart, Me, Dr. Hattie Washington, Renee Daniel Flagler, Nanette Buchanan) had a great time singing along with the music, dancing and drinking our coolers (Jamaica Me Happy) as we enjoyed the delicious meals. What can I say...the fried fish at lunch was da bomb! And dinner was very delicious too!
Overall, it was a great day. We had a chance to read from our novels, meet new readers, and laugh and chat with them. We networked with each other and traded writing tips and tricks. I was also impressed with some of the authors who could churn out two novels a year. And guess what? Well, now I'm inspired to get my projects off the ground! It was the reality check that I needed.
As we made our way to say our goodbyes to Sharon Lucas, all we could say was, "This was hit!" Until next time, check out some photos from the event:
