New Mexico...It's Freezing!

Good Morning...I can't believe I'm actually up already. After traveling most of the afternoon and evening yesterday I arrived here at Glorieta, New Mexico. I'm tucked away at a conference center outside of Santa Fe surrounded by fall colors. There was even frost on my windshield this morning. Yes, I've already been out of my room, crazy right!

This morning at 6:30 with coffee in hand, I dragged myself across the campus to secure appointments with editors from a variety of different publishing houses. I get to visit with some editors from Tyndale, AMG and Beacon Hill. This is the time where I have to sell myself, my book writing capabilities and hopefully cast a vision as a writer who people will want to read. It's easy to get caught up in the frenzy of it all...if this morning is any example it's going to be a crazy couple of days.
For the next four mornings I am going to be writing an story that will be published in a collection of other articles...more on that as it develops. I'm excited about having another publishing credit and what's even cooler, the story is about my grandmother. That's a tribute to her legacy!

It's fun to see some people I recognized from last year and I already have a lunch date with Diane who I met last year. She has a great blog, you can check it out on my blog roll. It's called Words In High Def...let me know what you think.

Yea!! Go get a book deal, I'm dying to read the rest of the book, I know how it ends but I can't wait to see what's in the middle. I really do love what you've written so far!!! Stay Warm!!!
