There were over 40 authors signing at the Queen City Indie Con Event. I did not have a chance to meet them all. Tia Catalina, Donya Lynne, and Aleatha Romig were also at the event. Plus I picked up the next books in a series I enjoy by Tia Louise. I also got to reconnect with Vanessa Marie, who has a book releasing on 11-11, also. Yea! If your name isn't on the list and you would like me to check out your books, leave a comment and I will.
Authors I’m going to check out:
Erin Moss Holzman
S. K. Logsdon
Amy A. Bartol
Esther M. Soto
