Out of Town and Talk like a Pirate Day!

I'm flying out to Minnesota early Thursday for the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) Conference. I'm very excited to meet for the first time several fellow authors that I've only met online and I hope to be able to encourage other writers in their craft and hopefully calm some nerves. Many aspiring writers attend this conference to pitch their book proposals to Agents and Editors and it can be quite nerve wracking. I'm very thankful to not be in that position!

On Saturday I'm signing The Falcon and the Sparrow at the Mall of America with over 100 other authors! It is the biggest Christian Book Signing in history and should be very exciting. here's the information:

What: ACFW booksigning
Who: 127 Christian novelists
Where: Best Buy and Bloomingdales' Courtyard and connecting hallway, Mall of America, Bloomington, MN
When: Saturday, September 20, 2008 1-3 p.m.
Why: To meet your favorite authors

In my absence, and in honor of Talk like a Pirate day (Sept 19th), I'll be posting a list of pirate phrases. For those who can decifer their meaning, I'm offering a prize. More on that tomorrow!
