ICRS Signing

This afternoon I will be flying out of Denver back home. Daughter Amberly will be heading out at the same time. Yesterday we had a very successful signing on the ICRS convention floor, with a long line that had to be cut off in order to start the signing right after us. (Which also had a long line waiting--for Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of Billy Graham.)

The ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), plus members of The Writers' View got together for dinner at Bubba Gumps' Shrimp. Amberly and I had a great time talking to different folks, including Kimberly Woodhouse, who's a lot of fun. (See Kimberly's Web site for her book Welcome Home, Our Family's Journey to Extreme Joy, about her family being on Extreme Makeover, Home Edition.)

It's been a terrific six days, but I'm ready to get home. I have a book waiting to be finished, plus another retreat and our family reunion, all this month.

What a pretty team. Gotta love Amberly's duds. So cool!

Looking at the two of you side-by-side, the resemblance is really striking!

Such a pleasure meeting your daughter. How proud you must be and how excited to be sharing the limelight and book cover with her. :) It was great seeing you, even though we only chatted briefly. Will be seeing you again in September, but likely only for 1 day of the conference (Saturday).

Congrats on the successful signing.
