Wickedcoolflight’s first flight took off in the summer of 2010. Back then, two of the crew lived in Hawaii, while the other crew member was in Las Vegas. When WCF began, it was more as an outlet for author and crew member, Teresa Crumpton, to get her name out there. In fact, for six years it was primarily her author blog. That was then, and this is now. In 2016, the blog changed, and is still changing and becoming what the crew envisions it will be.
In April 2016, as Teresa was preparing to publish her first novel, she twisted her bestie’s arm to go to RT with her (she didn’t have to twist hard). At that RT, Teresa talked Fly Girl into doing some reviews for the blog, especially now that Fly Girl had a shit-ton of books to read. (She still has a pile from that event!) During that event, we received this off-the-wall book that neither Teresa nor Fly Girl would read, but we laughed our asses off about it. NICUnurse had called Fly Girl while we were in Vegas, and we told her about this book. While Fly Girl and Teresa couldn’t contain their laughter (Teresa came close to hyperventilating), NICUnurse said she’d read it. We gave her one stipulation: she couldn’t pass the book on to anyone else. We had to keep it. Later that year, NICUnurse wrote her first review for WCF about that book.
A few months later, unbeknownst to NICUnurse, Fly Girl and Teresa were making plans to bring her into the blog, and Teresa was moving to change the blog from her author blog with a few book reviews, introductions, and Interviews, to partner with her friends. By 2017, the blog was truly underway.
Great job. Well done!
