When Ms. Desiree Holt asked me to attend the 2015 Wild Wicked Weekend in San Antonio, Texas, I had no idea how much fun it would be. Catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, and spending time introducing my friend Jackson Young (singer/songwriter, cover model, voice-over actor) made the event one of the best reader/author conventions I’ve ever attended.

Jackson and Desiree became immediate best friends, and she even tagged him to do a skit with her.

The book signing was fun because Jackson and I shared a table, and he sold his CDs. I will admit – I was a little jealous of the lines he had waiting to buy from him.

Jackson did a spectacular job of speaking at the Salute to the Military Lunch. He received a richly-deserved standing ovation.

 

 

Would I recommend Wild Wicked Weekend 2016? Oh my gosh, yes! I can’t wait for next year’s event, so let’s all start saving our extra quarters, and I’ll meet you there!

    It was so great to see you and Jackson at WWW. I’m glad you had such a great time! I know I always do and this was my third time attending – have attended from the first one. Also really appreciated Jackson’s recitation. Looking forward to seeing you both at RT in May in Dallas.

      Margie, it was wonderful, and I can see why you’ve made it an annual must-attend. Jackson’s recitation was moving, and it’ll be fun to see you in a couple months.

      I’d love to see you there, Gail. So much to do so close to the hotel. Plus ghosts in the hotel, if you want to stay in the old part!
