2015 Readers' Favorite Awards - Miami, FL
I have to say I had the time of my life at the Readers' Favorite Awards in November 2015 in Miami, Florida. Just meeting so many authors who've worked so hard to accomplish so much totally inspired me and made me want to write even more! I hope to have Riptide in the running for 2016 and will try for a gold with Undertow...and perhaps Rising Tide again in another category. I can't wait to go again last year. Networking, TV interviews, and best of all, meeting so many talented, driven authors. And the chance to meet such huge success stories incarnate, such as mega successful Mark Wayne Adams!! I was truly blown away. This was a first-class even all the way with top quality prizes, such as the medals and stickers, for the authors. Simply magical!
I hope to see all my author friends at next year's awards! Enter now to be in the running for these prestigious, International Awards! Click the picture to enter.
