The ACFW Conference starts next week. Each year Laurie Tomlinson hosts a mix & mingle, so attendees can get to know each other before we arrive. Here are the questions and my answers!
Name: Cara Putman
Location: Lafayette, IN
What you write/tagline/trademark: Contemporary Suspense and WWII Historicals — Stories that reemphasize that God never leaves us no matter how bad life seems.
Place in the book world: I’m getting ready to sign the contracts for books 22 and 23.
On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: I spend the week squealing and hugging. It’s like a grand family reunion.
The unique talking point that will get you going for hours: College football! (Go Big Red!), my faith, and good books.
Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My husband and four kiddos. The kids range in almost 15 down to almost 5, and they keep our family hopping!
Conference goals we can pray for? My goal is to serve with an open heart. Please pray that my eyes will be open for what God has for me next, but that He would also help me see the people who need a prayer and hug.
Anything we can celebrate with you? That one of my new contracts is with my dream publisher and editor!
One or two ways we can help you build your platform? You can like my author page on Facebook and sign up for my email list by clicking here! (I will NOT share your email with anyone and will only send an email with the very most important news.)
Are you coming to conference? You can join the fun, too!
In case you’re new here and have no idea what this is all about, it’s just a little link up with some questions that help us get to know each other before conference. Laurie Tomlinson loved the opportunity to meet people before she meets them in person, especially the first year in Indianapolis when I was a newbie There is a little link-up at the bottom of her post with links to different people going to conference and their own get-to-know-you questions.
Here’s what to do:
– Copy/paste and fill out your own answers (you don’t have to answer all of them!) in a post on your own website and paste the URL to that specific post (not your homepage) using this handy link-up tool. Just click on the blue button below that says “Add your link”. If you don’t have a website, feel free to answer the questions in the comments below!
– Make sure to link back to this post after you fill out your answers so any of your readers who are conference attendees can participate, too! The more, the merrier.
