Welcome to Miami! (Readers' Favorite Awards 2017)

Readers' Favorite knows how to host an Awards Reception! It was a true honor to be the recipient of a Silver Medal for my first novel, Groupie. How could I pass up the red carpet event in MIAMI?!

My husband and two dear friends accompanied me on our first trip ever to this amazing city. We stayed in South Beach in order to get the full experience...Miami did not disappoint! A fantastic boat tour gave us a chance to see the city from the ocean, as well as plenty of mansions and yachts. We even made a short trek to Homestead Racetrack to watch Nascar time trials- another first for me.

The book events were the highlight of course. We attended the Miami Book Fair, which comprised blocks and blocks of tents with authors, publishers, advertisers, and merchants. A true dream come true for us book nerds. Not to mention this was all under the sunny, warm weather in November. Ahh.

The Friday night Readers' Favorite Meet and Greet proved to be a fabulous opportunity to meet some amazing award winning authors and their spouses. It was such fun to see all of us gathered and I made friends from Arizona, Texas, New Jersey and Illinois, to name a few. This experience truly bonded us and I've been in touch with these new comrades several times since the awards and plan to keep in touch for the future.

Saturday night culminated in the Awards Ceremony where we each got to take the stage and receive our HUGE Olympic-style medals. The support and vibe in the room was fantastic. So much talent in one place was humbling to say the least. I had pictures taken on stage, in front of the red-carpet backdrop and was even interviewed by the media.

So thankful for this amazing opportunity and hoping for a chance to do it all again one day!
