Christy Reece and I met initially online via Facebook. That was before I was a big twitterer. Then I discovered the wonders of Twitter and didn't spend near as much time on Facebook. But I still wanted to chat with Christy. So I bugged her, and bugged her, and bugged her -- along with many of her other friends -- and she took the plunge and joined us on Twitter. Yay!
We met in person at Elisabeth Naughton's release party at RWA National 2010. I remember I was in the process of rewriting my first novel to my editor's requirements, it was due shortly after nationals and I was...nervous. Christy was so encouraging, so positive. And it only took a few words of reassurance from her to make me feel like I'd make it. And I did--met the deadline with a very polished new version of the novel.
I'm very grateful for Christy's words of wisdom that carried me through and always look forward to her fun and upbeat comments online.
