Sabrina York’s Snag My Swag: #AWWTA Edition

AWWTA in Nashville

I had an absolute blast at A Weekend With the Authors in Nashville! There were so many amazing readers and authors there, plus it was a great environment to relax and get to know each other. Imagine having drinks with your favorite author, or beating them at a wild game of Cards Against Humanity!

As I try to do, I collected some swag for my post-con giveaway. This time I won a raffle basket at the conference (which I am giving away to you, of course), but what thrilled me more was that it was a basket donated by reader Karen Henderson, who donated a bunch of prizes to support the cause of Operation Troop Aid. The raffle raised over $2000 for the charity thanks to Karen and the others who donated!

Event Highlights:

There were so many, it was tough to pick. Here are a few:

Number One. They gave me a microphone.

excited baby

Victoria Vane and I discovered that we were next door neighbors in the hotel…on the last night

I got to be a model for a day with Randy Sewell

Deb Diem shared with me. We won’t tell you WHAT she shared, but she did.

Kandi Silvers and I talked bunny fashion

I did not grab Donna Michaels’ ANYTHING

There wasn’t even one zipline

I blinged readers at Author Speed Dating! Too Fun!

Cindy Wolcott and I closed down the costume party

I got to FINALLY meet Beverly Ovalle, Lori King, Natasza Waters, Tamara Hoffa, Kate McKeever, Violet Howe (You’re wearing violet, Violet!), Jo Grafford, Charity Parkerson and the amazing Pam Ackerson!

Not to mention my beloved street team members, Lyn Nore, Sandy Sheer, Janet Overstreet and Jodie Bivins! Plus I got to hang out with Deb, Melissa, Veronica and Rosalie!

Linda Rae Sande, Victoria Vane, Betty Bolte and I fought over a cardboard man. (He was worth it)

Kayce Lassiter whooped my bottom…

In Cards Against Humanity

Penny, Pam and I enjoyed Cruise2

I got a selfie with Hildie McQueen

I sat near Paige Tyler at the book signing. But I couldn’t SEE her because of all the fans at her table

I got a crick in my neck watching Maranda Raven do her PA Magic

Chandra Crawford and I talked about plotting strategies!

Melissa and I chatted about automotive repair

From the safety of the sidelines, I watched Elle James get thrown from the bull.

Lexi Post and I reminisced about our college days at ISU.

I discovered that Tara Cromer mentioned me in the acknowledgements in her first book, Finding You!


It was an awesome event. Tons of activities, over 70 authors and awesome readers, but still small enough to give everyone time to relax and really get to know each other.

Thank you Sandy Sullivan, for the wonderful weekend!
