What an insane weekend! I am full of happiness and gratitude. I am grateful for the support and encouragement I’ve had from the beginning. My parents and siblings, my friends, my husband, my Hollins friends, and now the HCS Publishing family. Every step of the way I have been surrounded by amazing people who uplift me.
The launch was fun and the weekend taught me a lot. This was the first time I went to a convention as a fellow artist wishing to make a splash. I met some wonderful people all about supporting each other, and was reminded that this is what it’s all about. Making a splash is great; and when you collaborate with others and make an even bigger splash, it’s even more rewarding.
I made some great connections I am looking forward to developing, and was invited to a few more events going on this year. It was a whirlwind of crazy and I loved every minute of it. Mostly, I just can’t say enough how grateful I am for the support of those who have helped me get to this point.
My future with HCS Publishing is going to be incredible!
