American Christian Fiction Writers Conference – ACFW

 I’ve been having so much fun meeting old friends and making new ones that I’m afraid I haven’t taken many photos. Internet access is also difficult, but here are a few that I’ve managed to download. Later, I want to add a cool photo I took of The Arch emerging from the fog behind the state building. Tracie Peterson gave the opening address yesterday…very entertaining. Hopefully, later I’ll get a close-up picture. I’ve gained notoriety for locking my roommate out (long story), but Brandilynn Collins had fun roasting me from the platform. Now, just about everyone knows my name!! And my books in the conference bookstore have sold out!!!

I met Ashley online a few months ago and we’ve had a wonderful time getting to know each other in person.

If you visit my FB page, you’ve seen this pic of Patty Smith Hall , Ruth Logan Herne, and new Love Inspired Historical  author Sherri Shackelford admiring my grand daughter’s photo. 😀

  • Thanks, Sandra, for the info and pics of conference/writers! It is always good to see what you guys look like! lol Congrats on your book selling out at the store there! I can’t wait to read it when I can get a copy.

  • thanks so much, Jackie. I had hoped to get more pictures up yesterday and let people know that the ACFW award ceremony was being broadcast live. Since I’m traveling today, I’ll get photos of some of the award winners up on Monday

  • That’s an interesting marketing technique you’ve perfected, Sandra! LOL — congrats on being sold out.

    I watched the award ceremony online last night. It was fun to put faces to names.

    Safe journey home.

Great to "see" you here today! I look forward to reading your comment.
