This is a rare sighting, indeed! Two of The Familiar Stranger's endorsers sitting together: Eva Marie Everson, who spoke at the conference, and Randy Ingermanson, who taught a few workshops.
Do you ever wish you could go to a writing conference for free? Like maybe attend the national ACFW conference without leaving your home or spending a cent? Well, I think buying the MP3s of the conference would be well worth your money, but here's a little bonus for you non-ACFW members: The 2009 ACFW Afictionado E-zine, chockful of informative articles. I am partial to the recap of Workshop 21, and I'm sure you will quickly see why. :)
A woman who lives in Ridgecrest, CA knew she'd be having surgery soon, so went into the Christian bookstore to load up on reading material. She asked the salesperson for any recommendations.
"Here." The person handed a book over. "We don't know anything about this author, but we've been getting great feedback on the story."
And Barb, my parents' friend from when Mom was pregnant with me, found herself holding The Familiar Stranger. :) How cool is that?!?
