I’m not even gonna tease you with a build up. I’m too damn excited. Joining the amazing Denise Grover Swank as one of our keynote speakers for the fourth utopYAcon is the dream-leading Kim Holden, author of Bright Side and All of It.
Her speech, titled “Do Epic,” which is the mantra and lifestyle of Bright Side’s heroine, will be Holden’s first ever keynote. The wife, mama and writer is stepping outside her comfort zone and tackling many new firsts these days, and she’s reaping the rewards of that bravery. The growing, thriving and supportive community she has attracted due to the powerful and positive message that the tear-jerking new adult romance, Bright Side, has created, is nothing short of a movement.
Holden’s star is rising quickly, and we couldn’t be happier that she will be sharing her message with you live at #utopYA2015.
If you haven’t read Bright Side yet, you’re gonna wanna before this speech in June. And, I’ll just go ahead and warn you now that you’ll have a book hangover for like, a year. Have tissues ready. Warn your loved ones that you’re about to grab every bull by the horns and find a whole new tribe of friends, too (yes, there’s even a Facebook support group). All of It is also a love story, but one with a magical twist of fate that had me…well, I don’t want to give anything away.
