2014: My Year in Review

I give to you all the things that made 2014 the best year of my life. I met so many amazing authors and bloggers. Some of which have become friends. I went on my first tour, visiting festivals and book stores throughout the southeast. I published two novels. Saw the TFIOS cast. Ventured milestones and created memories. I watched the people around me grow, and I like to say I grew a bit myself. Thank you to everyone that made my year so incredible. Here's to a fabulous 2015!
