What an exciting and interesting day it's been!
My husband and I are in Somerset, NJ, at the Catholic Writers Guild conference (which is running alongside the Catholic Marketing Network trade show). Conveniently, all the conference rooms and sales floors are right here at the Double Tree hotel, where we have a room.
The morning started out with a Rosary at 7:00 a.m. followed by a beautiful and holy Mass, and then there were all sorts of informative talks throughout the day about writing, getting published, and marketing books. We've learned a lot already; hopefully we'll be able to put this valuable knowledge to good use when we get back home, and it will lead to finding a wider reading audience for Finding Grace.
Stealing Jenny and In Name Only. They're wonderful and I would recommend both. In my opinion, they are more satisfying and inspiring than similar "chick lit"-type books--because unlike most popular mainstream women's fiction, they are infused with Catholic and pro-life themes throughout. And they're a really good deal as Kindle downloads, if you want to check them out.
Stay tuned--there'll be more on the conference tomorrow!
