Back from Minneapolis

I had a great time at ACFW last week. I sat in James Scott Bell's morning class, and it never ceases to amaze me that he always comes up with a new "nugget" of wisdom that is so applicable to my writing.


On Saturday, there was a book signing at the Mall of America, featuring 126 (I think that was the final count) Christian authors.



In the background you can see the gigantic media add for "Waiting for Daybreak". I'm in the foreground (wearing black) beside Lyn Cote.











This is a bigger picture of the ad.










This is a picture of "Promise to Remember", announcing that it was up for Women's Fiction Book of the Year.

BTW- Promise to Remember got third place. Woo hoo! Deb Raney won the category with "Remember to Forget". She also won 2 other categories that night for different books, and she's had movies made from her books, so I'm happy just to be on the same list with her! (Did I mention that she truly is one of the absolute SWEETEST people I've ever met?)

I've heard wonderful things about the conference. I wish I could have gone. The photos streaming in from various blogs and ACFW website shows that it had to have been a fantastic time.

I'm excited to attend my first ACFW conference next year in Denver!!!

Thanks for sharing pictures.

Congratulations, Katie! It was wonderful to see and talk with you at the conference.

BTW, when I did my own "drive-by" book signings after the conference, I saw Waiting for Daybreak on the shelves of bookstores throughout Minnesota!! :-)

I loved a Promise to Remember also!

I recently found the work of James Scott Bell and enjoy it too.
