Hey everyone! It’s my month again! You’ve got me the whole month of September.
For me, September means book releases, season premieres, FALL WEATHER!, and so much more. This year it also means band performances interrupted by football games, our first foray into band competitions and overnight trips (though that’s not until October), and helping our oldest get ready to test for her driver’s permit (also not until October – and she’ll be leaving super early in the morning on her birthday for that road trip).
This year, it also means it’s time to buckle down on the writing. I recently quit my day job (officially, I took the fall off, but it’s hard to get back in once you do that) to write full time. Hopefully, that’ll mean more books faster! YAY!
Normally, it also means getting ready for the American Christian Fiction Writers annual conference, but as I’m sure you’ve heard, that was last week. I got to hang out with our own Cheryl Wyatt (though we never have enough time together!), and lunch with Deb Kastner, Ginger Solomon, Heidi McCahan, Kimberly Rose Johnson, and Lee Tobin McClain. Plus I met or saw again so many non-IR peeps – like Tamara Leigh (have you read her medievals?), Dani Pettrey, Karen Witemeyer, Kristy Cambron, Betsy St. Amant, Cara Putman, Deb Raney, Ted Dekker, Kathleen Y’Barbo, Clari Dees, most of the Seekerville gals, Beth Vogt, Becky Wade, Katie Ganshert, Sarah Ladd, Robin Carroll, Rick Barry, Jim Rubart, (and those are just the ones I see super quick as I scroll through the pics on my phone). It’s my favorite week of the year!!! But it’s now it’s 381 days until the next one… (not that I’m counting).
I also got to see my second cousin who I’d never met before and spend the day with her and her family! We were able to identify some people in some pictures I have from around the turn of the last century which is FANTASTIC!
What about you? Are you all about the pumpkin spice everything? I have lots of friends who are!
