Last week my dear hubby and I took a break from the pressures of daily life and responsibilities helping my dad convalesce and we went to Pensacola Beach for the Silken Sands Writers' Conference. An added bonus (and the only reason I would drive seven hours each way) was that I got to spend time with my crit partner and former naughty chick, Savannah Stuart.
Aside from seeing Savannah and doing the whole conference thing, I even got to meet current chick, Casey Crow, who is just as adorable as her posts!
I got to listen to some awesome workshops, hang with buddies Savannah, Cynthia Eden, Manda Collins and Jeffe Kennedy as well as had a sumptuous lunch with Carina Press Managing Editor, Angela James at a beach side restaurant with a view of scantily clad young men playing volleyball. I won a pink voodoo doll that Cynthia Eden totally coveted, had a gorgeous room with a balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and came home with dozens of books I can't wait to dig into. I met all sorts of great folks and even had some quality time with the hubster.
