Today, I want to share about another convention I've been to multiple times and absolutely love. I attended for the third time this past February and meant to do a giveaway and recap. I kept either not having time or forgetting about the post. However, I now believe I didn't post about it because I was meant to post about as part of my birthday celebration, considering the first time I went to the convention, I bought the ticket as a birthday gift for myself.
I got to hang out with a ton of new authors, including the hysterical Jocelyn Drake and her lovely husband (who has a surprising talent for rap). I also had the chance to reconnect with some old friends, including Kiernan Kelly, Aria Kane, JA Souders, Carrie Ann Ryan, Brynn Myers, Damon Suede, and of course, the spectacular Taylor Law. Plus, I got the chance to hang with an awesome couple (who wished to remain anonymous) who ended up helping me out when my hotel situation fell apart. You two are awesome and greatly appreciated.
I got to geek out over Arrow, the Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow with Sean Michael during the book signing, which rocked. And during lunch one day, Tere Michaels and Charlie Cochet convinced me to put aside my dislike of cliffhanger endings and finally read Charlie’s Thirds series. Of course, I ended up falling in love with the characters and the world of the Thirds. So I will just have to deal with the cliffhanger-ish endings from now on with this series, because I can’t resist the series now (highly recommended, btw).
This is just a small glimpse into the awesomeness that is Coastal Magic, and I can’t wait to go back next year (though hopefully the weather will cooperate).
Now I recognize that not everyone can make it down here for Coastal Magic, but never fear, because I will bring the Coastal Magic to you! I am giving away an awesome swag bag (identical to the one in the photo above) to one lucky commenter (US only). There are all sorts of awesome goodies that I collected throughout the weekend (including physical books!) inside that will not disappoint.
