My Unforgettable Experience at Chicago Spring Fling 2024

Hey there, romance lovers! Shay Baby here, and I’m still buzzing with excitement from my recent trip to Chicago Spring Fling. Let me take you on a whirlwind journey through the amazing weekend I had!

From the moment we arrived on Thursday, it was clear that this was going to be a trip to remember. Midnight Ace from Midnight Ace Bookbar was there to greet us, and together, we embarked on an adventure filled with literary magic.

My festivities kicked off with a bang at the Bookseller, Blogger, Librarian Podcaster Networking event. The energy was contagious, and I found myself immersed in engaging conversations and laughter-filled moments. And yes, I may or may not have indulged a bit too much at the Spa in Space Fragrance Bar, courtesy of Midnight Ace and my dear mom!

Friday was a whirlwind of interviews, workshops, and master classes. But the highlight of the day? The BJ Pajamas Party hosted by none other than Beverly Jenkins and Brenda Jackson. Decked out as a Unicorn (because why not?), I danced the night away surrounded by fellow book lovers.

A special shoutout to The Luv team for bringing an extra dose of excitement to the event! Nancy and Polly, you created a monster by granting me access to do the first live stream on LUV. It was an absolute blast, and I couldn’t have asked for a better platform to share the magic of Chicago Spring Fling with the world. TOO MUCH FUN doesn’t even begin to cover it! I broadcasted all weekend, capturing every unforgettable moment and spreading the love of romance literature far and wide.

Saturday was equally thrilling, with a book signing that was nothing short of LIT! Kate Clayborne stole the show as the keynote speaker for the luncheon, and let me tell you, her books are absolute must-reads.

And then came the Gala, where the legendary Beverly Jenkins took the stage and left us all in awe with her powerful words. The night was filled with laughter, dancing, and a sense of camaraderie that made me feel right at home.

In the end, Chicago Spring Fling wasn’t just a conference—it was a community, a family, a home away from home. The connections made, the memories created, and the sheer joy of being surrounded by fellow romance enthusiasts left an indelible mark on my heart.

Before I sign off, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the incredible hosts of Chicago Spring Fling, Pamala and Shannyn. Your dedication, passion, and hard work made this event truly unforgettable. From organizing workshops to planning the perfect pajama party, you went above and beyond to create an atmosphere of warmth and inclusivity. Thank you for being the heartbeat of Chicago Spring Fling and for welcoming us all with open arms. You two are the real MVPs!

Until next time, Chicago Spring Fling. Thank you for an unforgettable weekend!
