The last book conference in 2019 was in New Orleans from September 11 – 13, Swirling the Big Easy 2019, ended with a Caribbean cruise for five days on the Carnival Valor. We stayed at the history Bourdon Orleans Hotel. This hotel has a history of being haunted. I did not see or feel any ghost during my stay. It was nice to take in the shops, walk down Bourdon Street, and revisit the city I lived in for a while.
I had so much fun mingling with my girls, meeting fellow readers, and some of my favorite authors. There was so much to do with a little time to do it in. While I am no stranger to NOLA, this will be my first cruise and trip to the Caribbean.
The following authors were in attendance Kenya Wright, Sienna Mynx, Maureen Smith, Blue Saffire, Ancelli, Keta Kendrick, Tiya Rayne/KC Connor, Ivy Harper, KT Alder, Theodora Taylor, Eve Vaughn, Phoenix Daniels, Twyla Turner, Latrivia (Nelson) Welch, Stephanie Morris, LaVerne Thompson, Sage Young, Angela Kay Austin, Sydney Aaliyah Michelle, Kassanna, LaQuette, D. Mortier, JanJan Untamed, S.K. Lessly, Lolah Lace, and many more.
A belated thank you to our host Gerrilyn.
