Do you know Julie Hutchings?
You know, this babe?
Julie wears many hats. And not because she’s a shifty criminal with multiple identities trying to evade authorities (but she could be because she is that interesting.) Julie is a mom, author, blogger, writer, reader, encourager of people, pep-talker, advice giver, inappropriate joke-teller, and recipient of awkward text messages of my face.
Her first novel RUNNING HOME is phenomenal. She’s also participating in an anthology that I am editing and releasing this fall called The Dark Carnival. And what I’m most excited about, she’s currently writing a story about witches and it sounds like THE BEST NOVEL IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE AND I CAN’T WAIT TIL IT’S DONE.
Ahem. Anywho, what I’ve noticed is how amazing Julie is. She’s entirely honest and true. She’s encouraging when I need it. And damn, this chica is talented. So I asked myself, how can I show her how AMAZING she is?
And I realized, what could be better than a Friday celebration in Julie’s honor?
I’ll toast first.
And then to follow, when I told other people in secret that I was doing a Julie-is-awesome-post, they were just dying to give a toast to Julie too!
So raise your glass and follow along! Get ready to read what people had to say when I asked them the following question:
