My Favorite Things about Autumn—ACFW

Queen of the Waves—Click to purchase on AmazonOne of the best things about autumn to me is the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) conference every September. I get to hangout with really cool Christian writers. Have you read Janice Hanna Thompson, Carrie Turansky, Ginny Aiken, Margaret Brownley or Lynette Eason? And the worship at ACFW is incredible, too. Thanks, Rachel Hauck and team.

I learn so much from the writing craft workshops, featuring instructors such as T. Davis Bunn, Steve Laube, Nancy Kress and Susan May Warren. I also add a great many books to my To-Be-Read pile for the year.

I enjoy chats over coffee, lunch and dinner with people I only get to see once or twice a year. Yeah, I’m talking about you—Betsy Duffy, Laurie Myers, Morgan Doremus, Edie Melson and Deb Raney.

A highlight for me this year was the Abingdon Press Author get-together. I feel so privileged to work with Abingdon, my editor Ramona Richards, publicist Jeane Wynn of Wynn-Wynn Media and the fabulous Abingdon writers.

The first Quilts of Love book by Carolyn Zane has released. If you love romance, if you enjoy crafts or quilting, pick up a copy.

What do you enjoy about autumn?
I’d love to hear from you.
