No, I didn’t have a book signing (though I helped with a couple friends’ signings). Since my book isn’t out till October there’s really nothing to sign. But I had a badge to get in to ADVANCE, and we markered AUTHOR on the bottom of ours.
In many ways, walking around the floor at ADVANCE was like a kiss from heaven. Isn’t that how it feels when you see the beginning fruit to a dream. And I am so on the beginning side of this. The thing that amazes me about the Christian authors I know is how much openess and encouragement there is.
We spent Tuesday night brainstorming the next book for one of my dear friends. It was a hoot! But no one in the room sat there and said, “I want that idea.” Instead, it was all about helping this author come up with a fabulous idea and foundation for her next suspense.
And I think I have an agent. Pretty cool! But I’ll say for sure after I sign the contract 🙂 The lawyer in me says nothing counts for sure until there are two signatures. But I am very excited about working with her. I think we’ll be a great fit.
And, Joanna, I got to visit with your dad, too. That was awesome!
