ADVANCE: I think I just might be an author!

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!

Cara,

Remember me from 1st grade in Columbus, GA? I live in Montomery, Al now and work some in Mobile. I just had dinner with Robert and Sarah Brenner and Stephanie and Nathan. Robert just flew in today from Indy and showed me your card w/ your blog site on it.

I didn't see an email to contact with here, so hopefully you'll get this. Email me at nathanbradfield@gmail.com

I added a link to your blog on my blog, Church and State. What kind of law do you specialize in?

Woo hoo, Cara! Congrats on the agent deal. So happy you had a great time at ADVANCE. I just read Colleen's post about it on her blog at Girls Write Out. It does all sound like a dream :-).
