Friends, Fun, and Fan-Girling at RWA in Denver

I did it! I traveled outside of my cozy, little introvert bubble and got out there to meet real people in the real world! I've been part of the online romance community since 2011, but I've met very few of them in person. Mostly because I feel confident when chatting on Facebook, but am terrified in person.

Well, good friends are great at helping you grow–and my bestie, Mallory Crowe, is no exception. She coaxed me into going and took care of me while I was there. Although I was nervous on day one, I soon came out of my cocoon and turned into a happily flitting social butterfly.

Me!

And, let me tell you, being among two-thousand strong women who have devoted their lives to happily ever afters was incredibly empowering. The compliments were freely flowing, and we all really were like sisters. The huge successes like Brenda Novak, Jill Shalvis, and Barbara Freethy not only talked with us small fish but were interested in what we had to say.

Everyone was so kind and supportive and FUN! I am definitely going again next year… and the year after… and the year after.

It just goes to show you that sometimes our biggest fears can turn into our greatest accomplishments. I extroverted, and I am all the better for it.

Check out the pictures I snapped with my friends in Denver and learn more about them and their books, too. I'm so excited to share this with you! Are you fans of any of the authors I got to meet? Which authors would you love to meet in person?

Remember, the things that frighten you most can turn into the ones you remember best. Get out there, and live that life!
