Hello everyone! As some of you know, Christina and myself (Carmen) were able to make the quick 3 hour drive up from Kansas City, MO to Des Moines, IA for the New Adult AViD Event featuring J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout), Cora Carmack, and Jay Crownover! I found it pretty funny that the ad for this event says "It's Raining Authors", because we were definitely rained on alright. For us here in Kansas City, we had quite an active day of tornados, but decided to brave the storms and drive on up. However, we didn't exactly make a clean get away. During the event, Des Moines was also under a tornado watch and had a pretty powerful storm roll through too. So, needless to say, the ad was definitely spot on!
It was held at the Des Moines Public Library - which was very beautiful! They were very organized with this event as well.Unfortunately, Jay Crownover had a flight delay and was unable to attend the event, but it was still very entertaining!
Christina was able to record some of the panel and a few little extra tidbits on our journey for you guys, so you're able to see Cora Carmack and J. Lynn answer a lot of questions from fans and talk about new things coming up in the future for them. (See video below)
Here are some of the photos from the event as well!
