I just got back from the 2008 American Christian Fiction Writer’s conference, and my daughter Adele and I had a wonderful time.
The great thing is that we were able to be in the Twin Cities (MN) area, where I grew up and most of my extended family lives. Because of that, every time we had a few hours free we drove up to Brooklyn Park to visit my mother, who broke her foot the day before the conference. I consider it a privilege to have been able to help her out during this time.
Personally, I met with two agents, while my daughter met with three. I have one request for a proposal, and my daughter has two. This was excellent, especially considering three of those agents don’t generally represent fantasy.
But I find myself pausing.
