#UTOPiAlove GoFundMe Blog Hop


As many of you know, I’m a four year veteran and a HUGE fan of UTOPiAcon – the book conference that takes place every June in Nashville. This year was beyond epic, and I’m still buzzing from all the positivity, information, and inspiration. And I can not wait for June 2016 to attend the FIFTH anniversary. 

As we jump into this anniversary year, we want to give back to the organizers who have given so much inspiration and support to us. A conference of this magnitude–of this level of MAGIC–is valuable, and also expensive to produce properly.

Utopia has been the birth place of so many books, partnerships, blogs, teams, and friendships. It so genuinely enhances the lives of it’s attendees, but – even more importantly – it helps authors and bloggers bring great things into the world. 

So we wanted to share a little of that with YOU!

Without Utopia I would never have…

That’s the fifteen second version. For lots more reasons, check out this blogtalk radio interview I did with the fabulous Jo Michaels. And check out the other folks on this bloghop to learn about the many ways Utopia changed their lives for the better too.

Over the past few months, we’ve learned that organizers, friends, and even family have come forward and given from their own personal funds in order to help move Utopia forward another year and we want to pay them back. We want to FIGHT FOR OUR WRITE and do our part to help.

So if you’ve ever been touched by Utopia, or if you love any of the authors, bloggers, or readers who have, please take a moment to give a few dollars. This will insure the inspiration continues.

We hope you’ll be led to give from the heart, but to sweeten the deal we have some MAJORLY EPIC incentives!
