At the ACFW Booksigning in Dallas, Texas. I sat next to Colleen Coble who is a mega-successful author. It was fun to get to know her better.
I got my picture from Myra Johnson--a good friend--and if you click on the link above it'll take you to Myra's blog and she's written some wonderful, touching thoughts about her experience at the conference.

I had a wonderful time last week at the ACFW Conference in DAllas. I'm exhausted and overwhelmed and glad to be home. But I loved it.
The link above takes you to the ACFW website. This organization is the reason I finally figured out how to get a book published and I'm incredibly grateful to it.
Plus, just spending four days with 450 Christian Women Writers is just a beatufiul, fun experience.

My Mother-in-law Marybelle had this picture out today. She's been going through some old stuff. So I asked if I could have it. The littlest girl in the picture is my friend Janell. The link in this blog's title will take you to her blog.
This is her family. I suppose they all have this picture already, but I thought they might get a kick out of it anyway.
Janell is one of two people on earth who can ask about my brothers and sisters--there are eight of us--and actually know what I'm talking about, who I'm talking about and care what I say. And I can do that with her. That's a different and precious kind of friendshaip when you have those roots with someone.
Anyway, looking at this picture made me smile and I thought I'd try and lure HER bloggers over to see it. Maybe it'll make them smile, too.

Sushi for One?
by Camy Tang
Camy Tang's debut novel Sushi for One? is a hilareous, high energy, fast paced read.
I loved the sass and the frustration of poor harrassed Lex the OSFC (Oldest Single Female Cousin).
But what sets this book apart from lots of fun reads is the Asian flavor Camy brings to the story. It brings a touch of the exotic, takes you away to this best-of-both-worlds American-Asian family and brings the book to life in a way few authors I've read can do.
I had a great time with Sushi for One? I highly recommend it.
