Well, I've been here for a year, and Joooood hasn't kicked me out yet! WOOHOO!!! Throughout the year, I've come in contact with some wonderful authors, read some AMAZING books, and written more reviews than I realized haha. I am so honored to be a part of this awesome community, and, narrowing down from that, this review group, full of some of the best people I know.
I couldn't decide what to make my one year post about for a while, but I've figured it out! I'm going to tell you about the first time I met any Platypires in person! Who was it? It was these two:
I had been following them since the page started, but had known Jooood for even longer. But I had never MET her. And Mel? She is amazing! To me, it was like meeting celebrities, and I came so close to getting sick from nerves. I met the lovely Kyle, first. That's the photo bomber up there.
So, there I was, having had met The Hooligans the night before, and knowing that meeting Mel was coming up in the morning at the Houston Author Bash (2014). I managed to hold my copious amount of coffee where it belonged in my gut, and discovered that beyond their obvious coolness, these people were SO SWEET! We all got along immediately, and it was like we had been friends all our lives!
Then, later, I was helping Jooood out with some stuff, and she finally talked me into becoming a reviewer. Now, my reviews aren't suave and sofisticated. They're not long and eloquent. Rather, they are short, sweet, and to the point in general. I don't like to read long, drawn out reviews, and that's why I don't write them. And yet you've all accepted me as a natural part of the team. So, thank you to the Platypires for keeping me around (despite the fact that I've BARELY been around the last few months, what with pregnancy and spawning and all), and thank YOU to thr readers and authors who embraced me as one of them, as well. You all rock, each and every one of you!
Here's to an even better second year!
