Thanks to Laurie Tomlinson for this fun way to get to know other writers that are attending the ACFW conference at the end of the month. This will be my second year at ACFW and I am so excited! I cannot believe it's already been a year. Looking forward to getting to know lots of new writer-friends and seeing some of the fabulous and talented people I met last year.
Here’s what to do:- Copy/paste and fill out your own answers (you don’t have to answer all of them!) in a post on your own website and paste the URL to that post (not your home page) using this handy link-up tool on Laurie’s page. Just click on the blue button below that says “Add your link”.
Here are my get-to-know-you answers:
Name: Connilyn Cossette (you can call me Conni)
Location: Waxahachie, Texas (which is pronounced Walks-a-hach-ee) a little town south of Dallas.
What you write/tagline/trademark: Biblical Fiction "Digging for Truth through Biblical Fiction"
Place in the book world: Agented by the super-amazing Tamela Hancock Murray of the Steve Laube Agency (whom I met/pitched to at last years ACFW) and well..... I have upcoming news but can't share just yet, hopefully soon.... :)
On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: I am not usually an initiator but I am a joyful receiver of hugs, bring them on.
The unique talking point that will get you going for hours: Books, Biblical History, Adoption, Music, Art, Homeschooling.
Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: Only my crazy cross-eyed cat. I'm bringing my husband and two kids along for the trip!
Conference goals we can pray for? To relax and enjoy, to put my introverted self out there without fear, and to meet lots of new writer friends! Oh, and for safety and sanity on an 11 hour trip in the car with our kids!
Anything we can celebrate with you? Not yet, but get the confetti ready..... ;) however, I was recently a Top Ten Finalist in the Family Fiction Short Story Contest (You can read my story here at FamilyFiction.com).
One or two ways we can help you build your platform? Yes, please! You can like my author page on Facebook, follow me on Twitter @connicossette and sign up for my new email list by clicking here! (I will NOT share your email with anyone and will only send the very most important news. Be the first to hear the upcoming announcement!)
I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone. If you would like to participate in this fun mix-and-mingle, head on over to Laurie Tomlinson's page for details.
