Back from Conference

The ACFW conference in Denver was wonderful. I renewed so many friendships and met so many wonderful writers. Also, a few good things happened to me. I would rather not talk about them until I know more for sure. I will tell you I was asked for a full manuscript and two publishers wanted proposals. That is really good.

Debbie Macomber was the key note speaker and she was so good. I learned not to give up, even if someone tells you your book is trash. So far I have not been told that.

I met several writers and authors that I had met at Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers and October Fest. Then I made new friends, one in particular has asked me out to lunch when we are moved. It was a wonderful experience.

The flights coming and going were both bumpy. The weather did not cooperate with me this time. Coming from Atlanta to Tri Cities was extremely bumpy. We were in clouds most of the way both times. I did meet some wonderful people in the airport and on the plane.

It is good to be home and now I have some writing to do and packing and selling a house. It will be busy for the next few weeks. I won't have many spare moments. My bed felt so good last night!

Everyone have a wonderful day.


  1. Katt, Thanks so much for your kindness to Sandi. She is a special friend. I am excited for both you and Sandi at the results you had at the ACFW Conference. I so wanted to be there but all in God's timing.
    I am happy for you in your move to Benton KY. Yes, move close to those grandkids. They grow up so quickly and you both have worked so hard to be where you are today. Perhaps one day Sandi and I can do a road trip and come visit.

  2. You are welcome, A.J. to visit anytime you want. We are so easy to find. I love the conference. Next year it is in Indianapolis, closer to me. Sandi is almost ready for her proposal and she is looking at my third chapter. I am very excited. Everyone was so nice, except one lady that told us to go to the back of the line at dinner Saturday. She was not nice at all. Love you.
