*Last weekend was one of the best weekends of my life. I'm still on cloud nine after my first experience at NCTE.
*The convention was held here in Minneapolis and I was fortunate enough to attend all four days.
*I actually had the honor of presenting with the Nerdy Book Club on a panel Friday afternoon.
*Not only did I learn an incredible amount of thought-provoking information, I had the opportunity to meet so many Twitter friends and authors.
*Here is a glance of my first time at the convention...
