MTCAN Report

I met so many people and had so much fun at MTCAN! The organizers of the event did such a fabulous job for us that now I feel like a VIP--a Very Impressed Person. I got to schmooze and rub shoulders with the likes of Elizabeth Ludwig, Janelle Mowery, Charlotte Holt, Janice Thompson, Kathleen Y'Barbo, Martha Rogers, Linda Kozar, and Sharen Watson. Great company and great friends!

The combined ministries of Cec Muphey, Gail Gaymer Martin, Cyndy Salzmann and Kathy Ide, as well as the musical entertainment--Darla Reid, Brenda White, Gail Martin, Karen Slagle and Julie Zick blessed those assembled. Christian Comedianne Karen Mayer Cunningham was a hoot!

Despite a smaller than expected crowd due to inclement weather, the event still managed to raise over $1450 for Grace~Full, a single parent ministry. Not bad!

I see great things ahead for MTCAN, and I've put this event on my calendar for next year. I hope you'll do the same.

The shadowy blur in the background (behind the great display my daughter Tracy set up) is me.

Marcia, it sounds like you had a great time. There's nothing like hanging out with so many talented authors, is there?

I hope your signing went well. Your table looks lovely. Kudos to your daughter.

Thank you, Keli! I did have fun.

I'll pass the word to Tracy. She's always such a great help to me.

Well dadgum, I didn't know you'd started posting on your blog again. See. I told you that you never tell me anything. Sheesh.

I had a good time too. Even mentioned it on my own blog. What the ladies with Grace-Full are doing is a wonderful thing...and I'm so glad I was included in this event. I hope to be there again next year even if it's only to cheer on my buddies.
