U is for UPDATE

So, I said I would let ya'll know how the Boot Camp went. Success! It was so fun! We had 130  or so teens sign up --(with this being our first one and Easter and several school proms on the same day we are so pleased with the number of attendees).
The authors all gave fantastic classes and the kids were enthusiastic and already so excited for next year!

                    Me and  author--blogtastic Elana Johnson-- she's awesome. (and a fellow Sagitarian!)

          Me and author, Kiersten White-- she's a terrific speaker for teens! (She's fabulous and adorably tiny!)

Me and author, J. Scott Savage-- the character bible genius.

                            Me and author, Kristen Chandler my radio interview buddy.

                                           Just some of our recruits.

My wonderful Writers Cubed "Cubies" and our fabulous guest authors! If you haven't read their books-- look them up and get them now! (= These giving and gifted writers have some serious good karma coming their way!

A shout out of thank you to all of our wonderful authors. I enjoyed getting to know you and we "Cubies" are so grateful for your time and talent.

We got really positive feedback from our attendees. It felt good to be a part of something that has inspired and excited so many young aspiring writers.
After we recover from this year... we will think about next year. Whew!

Looks like you had a blast. Wish I could attend another conference of some kind. Hopefully soon.

I've passed an award to you. Come to my blog and claim it, if you'd like.
