Together at last!

As most of you know we just returned from the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference. It's been 3 long years since we've been together and we were ecstatic to be together again. We ate, we laughed, we brainstormed, we painted each other's toenails. Well, I painted Colleen's when she realized her toes were naked 5 minutes before the Book of the Year Award Banquet.

I did my share of goofy things. Big surprise. Got off elevator with a crowd of people and chatted with Rachael Phillips all the way to her door only to realize I was on the wrong floor. Too embarrassed to admit it, I turned back toward the elevator, acting like I'd walked her to her door and was heading back to mine. I rounded the corner and punched the button, shaking my head. A moment later, here comes Rachael. She'd gotten off on the wrong floor too and was too embarrassed to admit it to ME. (Side note: Rachael was offered her first fiction contract at the conference! Yay Rachael!)

Then later the same day I left Cheryl Hodde in our room and she said she'd meet me downstairs in a minute. I got on the elevator--what is it with elevators?--and waited, lost in thought through the ride. A half minute later the doors open I took a step, but there was Cheryl waiting to get on. "How did you get down--?"

Oh. I forgot to push the button.

But I did manage to accomplish a few things while there, scatterbrained moments aside. I met wonderful new writer friends, spent time with agent Karen Solem, Thomas Nelson Publisher Allen Arnold, editor Becky Monds, and publicist Jeane Wynn. That and my Girls too. Where else can I find all these wonderful people in one place?

The only thing missing was you!

We have changed Tonya. Colleen is a little bitty fraction of herself! It's scary how cute and little she is, but what a wonderful time we had.
