This past weekend I went to Penned Con in St. Louis. It was my first year to attend in any capacity, but I guarantee it won’t be the last. What a fantastic event put together by the incredible duo, Amy and Rick Miles. They put a LOT of effort into making this event a successful one for the readers, authors, and the charity, Action for Autism. Thanks to everyone who attended, Penned Con raised over $10, 000 that will go to Action for Autism and will provide scholarship funds to help families with children on the Spectrum afford the multiple therapies so many of our children need.
Here are some sights from the event:
Hello St. Louis! Did I get lost going into the city. Yes, yes I did. Did I have a navigation system? Yes, yes I did. Thank you for asking. 😉 However, if you put in 4th Street instead of 14th Street, it’s pretty much a sure thing you’re going to end up at the wrong place….like a hotel that was closed for business. Thank the gods for smart phones so I could check the address again. lol
Our table in the lobby is all set and ready to go!
It’s safe to say that a fun time was had by all and we raised a tidy sum for worthy cause. I didn’t get to do much author fangirling, and that’s alright, because I was super busy doing a heck of a lot of reader fangirling!
