First, don't forget to leave a comment on the Symphony of Secrets post and the Truffles by the Sea post to be entered in the contests for copies of those books. I will post winners when I get back in town.
Why am I out of town you ask? For ACFW board meetings and pre-conference meetings. I arrived in Minneapolis Wednesday early afternoon and have been running to meetings ever since. Until my body collapsed Thursday afternoon for a couple hours.
You see, this year, ACFW is having the large booksigning in a very public place -- ever heard of the Mall of America?!?!?! I've spent a lot of time there in the last couple days. We've always had a booksigning with the conference, but this is the first time it will be in a truly public forum. And you can't get much more public that the Mall of America. We'll take over two rotundas and a hallway since we'll have around 100 of Christian fictions big authors participating.
And my job as publicity officer is to spread the word to as many people as possible in the Twin Cities area. So I've been meeting with groups, the Mall, Barnes & Noble, etc. to generate their excitement and get leads.
I have my work cut out for me. Please pray that I'll have wisdom and favor as I work with the press, churches, groups, colleges, etc. And that I'll have the right people to help me with all the work that's just been generated!
And if you love Christian fiction, the book signing on September 20th at the Mall of America is going to be incredible!
