This has been a crazy week! I flew to Atlanta on Monday for the ICRS conference. I flew back on Tuesday. Wednesday, I was at the RWA conference for the Faith, Hope and Love Chapter’s mini conference. Today, I’m home and recovering. Over the next few days, I’ll show you some pictures from my travels.
Monday night, I met with an old friend, Alison Wise. She and I grew up together at church and were roommates after we both graduated from college. She lives in Atlanta now. So we had dinner at McCormick and Schmicks. I had wonderful salmon! Much better than the pretzel dog I had at the DFW airport earlier that day.
I met several authors at B&H and had a lot of fun with them. B&H Publishing Group is like a real family. Everyone is so incredibly nice. At breakfast, Tuesday morning, I met Peter Marshall! He was such a kind gentleman. My family has read his book The Light and the Glory and From Sea to Shining Sea. He has a new historical fiction series for kids ages 9 and up. I also met Debbie Macomber. I’ve met her a few times when I’ve bought her books at RWA conferences but this time I ended up signing a book for her. Kind of a surreal experience. She’s very gracious. I know she was really there to get Peter Marshall’s books and meet him but I can pretend, can’t I?
Tomorrow I’ll tell you about the signing on Tuesday. You won’t believe who showed up!
