Girls Write Out
Wednesday, September 21, 2011

If you've ever talked to Colleen on the phone, let me just say, she's enthusiastic. You usually can't tell if she's crying or insanely happy, so you try to get your bearings while she gets it out.

Yesterday, she calls me at work and screams in my ear, "Oh Kris, you have to get on a plane and get out here right now!"

I am freaking. I'm thinking Diann's surgery didn't go well. She needs moral support. Where can I get help for the kids? I will have to tell my boss I'm leaving for a while...all this runs through my head while she blurts the rest out...


Really? I'm having a heart attack and this is about my bath fetish? LOL Colleen and Denise are at ACFW and I should be there too. (It's in St. Louis this year.) But it's been so busy around here, I haven't had time to think or finish my rewrite, so it seemed very unprofessional to go at this juncture. But I'm really lamenting my friends being together when I'm not with them. I miss Colleen's enthusiasm. I miss Denise's voice of reason and mostly, I miss Di's fellow goofy ways. We are all soul sisters, and I'm so grateful.

But let this be a warning to you. Colleen Coble cannot be trusted on the phone!

The picture is the new cover they'll start from. The other one just didn't depict the story, though it was a great cover. Thank you all for your feedback!

I did. I really had to catch up!

I haven't even left yet. LOL It won't be the same without all of us there. :-/

So Colleen and Denise will be rattling around in that huge suite alone? Look what we're missing, Kris! Yes, Colleen is definitely Tigger.

I do too Jel, thank you!

I talked to Diann today and she sounded in good spirits. She needs our prayers still. Don't give up on praying because God can do all things, and she is ready to feel good and eat~

Man oh man ACFW sounds like so much fun.

I don't remember the other cover (sorry) but one comment on this one. You are right it is great, but sitting on the shelf I believe the dress should be a bit higher or cover more. I know I sound old, but the customers I am thinking of will not like it. I can think of several church librarian that will have a problem with it. Sorry, just what I noticed.
