As you’ve probably noticed, I am cutting back a bit on my blog posts. Much has happened this summer, aside from our family trip to Hawaii, enjoying summer events, and my son starting football (he won his first game this weekend!).
+ On August 7th & 8th I taught some classes at the annual youth conference Fusion Alaska and had a blast. As a newbie, I didn’t expect my sessions to fill up, but my room was bursting and once I had to turn some teens away. I got a lot of positive feedback, and one person said my classes were the best of the whole conference! I love teaching, so hopefully God will provide plenty of more opportunities.
+ Coming soon is the local writers conference we hold every fall! The Alaska Writers Guild is again partnering with the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. This is my fifth year on the conference committee and as always, I’m excited for the event. We’ve got some great speakers lined up, including Jon Fine representing Amazon! For more information, please visit the guild’s website. Registration ends in only a couple weeks, so sign up right away!
+ My plan was to try to have my first Viking novel out by the end of this year, but I finally decided to set those aside for now. I have been working on a few short stories for my publisher and also busy with family and other commitments. I just don’t have time to work on the Viking series. I know a lot of you have been looking forward to that, so just be patient with me a bit longer!
+ I also wanted to make you aware that the next installments of the San Francisco Wedding Planner will be released this week! The first six stories were released in one volume only a couple weeks ago. This next set will be some of the backstory for the main characters.
