ICRS Atlanta 2011, Part I

ICRS in Atlanta has been fantastic! And having my daughter Kelsey with me has made it all the better. Here are some glimpses from the past couple of days...

Catching a smile on the ICRS floor today with Jeane Wynn of Wynn-Wynn Media

Laughing with Tricia Goyer and Julie Quinn (B&H Publishing) at Tricia's booksigning.

Grabbing a  hug from sweet Deb Raney, who I'll see again in September at ACFW when we teach a class together

LOVE having Kelsey here with me. So fun!

A highlight was meeting Linda Attaway (Mocha with Linda) and chat with her for a few. What a great gal!

Met with my German publisher and (pictured below) is the cover of REKINDLED that just released in Germany one week ago. In German, the title reads "When a Stranger Returns." Love that!

Me with Aaron, Diane and Sylvia during my booksigning. Such fun seeing everyone!

My Dutch publisher, Albert deVos, and I met for a few minutes to chat about my books selling in the Netherlands. Appreciate the trust his company has shown in publishing my stories over there.

Had fun at the Christys tonight with Liz Curtis Higgs who emceed the ceremony (she was fabulous!) and with Julie Klassen who won the Christy for Best Historical Romance for The Girl in the Gatehouse. Congrats, Julie! Here's a press release on all the 2011 Christy winners.

Getting tickled at dinner at the Christys with Dwight Baker of Baker Publishing. Does this man look like a safe dinner partner? I think not...


Kelsey with sweet Liz after the ceremony

Hugging Brandilyn Collins after the Christys. Doesn't she look lovely! If only she were sweet... (grin)

And finally, Kelsey and me with Randall Wallace, who was the dinner speaker tonight at the Christys. Talk about an over achiever. This man has done it all. And so humble. You can read more about him here...

And now, to bed, and then back to Nashville tomorrow...

  2. It looks like you and your daughter had fun! That's great that you two are close and get to do some fun things together. Glad you had a good trip to GA and, as they say, "ya'll come back now, ya hear!" : )

  4. It WAS a great show this year, and the Christys were the best! All in all such a fun week. Now it's back to reality and writing. Well, until next week when I head to Idaho for my annual writers retreat with some other dear writing buddies. This will be our eighth summer to meet together. Can't wait!!!
