I'm a Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) member and attended my first conference this year.
I learned a lot at the conference and met fellow children's writer L.R. Pinto.
She published a magical and adventurous children's book called Amanda Apple, and it's available through Amazon. If you're not following her on twitter, you should be!
It was definitely a fun learning experience for me, and hopefully not my last seminar.
This is late, but I'm posting it anyway. I was having problems getting the pictures from my camera
The Travel and Adventure Show came to town in Long Beach, and I decided to take the family for a day of 'adventure'
It was a Fun and great day seeing all the destinations and possibilities for future vacation spots. There was something for everyone, including taste testing, shows, rock climbing and segways..or as my daughter and her friend call them- Sagways, ...Oh, and giant hamster balls too. Also, I grabbed some pretty cool freebies while there and NOW I WANT TO TRAVEL THE WORLD!
Meeting Travel Channel's Samantha Brown was the highlight of my day! She's so awesome and I loved seeing her in person. She was friendly and greeted everyone with a warm smile, and gave really great travel tips that I will use when I go to my favorite destinations!!
If you're not following Samantha Brown on Twitter, I suggest you do. She gives great tips on travel, and her adventures are always entertaining.
