ACFW Conference!

I’m super excited about the ACFW conference this year. It’s always uplifting, fun, and educational, but this one will be the best ever.

The place will be packed with people I can’t wait to hug. I’ll be able to hang out with my Be Still...and Let Your Nail Polish Dry devo sisters Andrea Boeshaar, Sandra Bricker, and Loree Lough. I get to finally meet Debra Collins who writes such romantic stories I can’t help but smile when I see her name. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’ll be a published author some day, and I’ll have to stand in a very long line to buy her books.

My agent Tamela Hancock Murray will be there. She’s extremely popular with her authors and people who are interested in having her represent them, but I hope to get a hug and have a few minutes of her time.

Editors from three of my publishers, Barbour Publishing, Summerside Press, and Abingdon Press will be there. It’ll be fun to see old friends from Barbour and finally get to meet my Summerside and Abingdon editors face to face. After a ton of e-mails with them, I feel like I know them already.

I’ll also enjoy just hanging out with one of my local writing friends, Tara Spicer (writes as Tara Randel). We’ve been through a lot together over the years, and now we’re experiencing the joys of sticking it out.

Hey Debby!
I just read this blog and it made me teary eyed, and I've already put my make-up on. I'll have to go re-apply before heading out to take care of my last minute errands before jumping on my plane in the morning bound for Denver!
I am so excited about meeting you.See ya tomorrow! ~Debra

Make sure you have waterproof makeup at the conference, Debra. It's a very emotional experience.
