In my last post, I talked about being invited to a secular writing conference in Los Angeles, and accepting the invitation with some trepidation due to an uncomfortable previous experience with a different mainstream conference.
Well, the Genre-LA event didn’t live up to my negative expectations after all. Oh, there were still some people who seemed to be there just to toot their own horns and sell their books. And a few folks, when they realized I was a Christian, politely ended our conversation and moved on, or avoided me altogether.
Yesterday I announced that Erynn Newman won my Promising Beginnings Contest, for which the prize is a full scholarship to the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference this April--registration fee, economy lodging, and meals during the conference. Although Erynn was thrilled to have won, some personal matters prevent her from being able to attend the conference this year. (I'm so sorry, Erynn!)
The new winning entry is: A WIFE OF VALOR by Rebecca D. Bruner
