What a privilege on this writing journey to meet so many wonderful and talented people.
Every month, I get to spend time with some pretty fabulous folks.
These would be my "peeps" at ACFW-MN NICE...my writers group.
Last Sunday evening I met Charlotte Hubbard/Naomi King. She is the same person!
She spoke to our group about selling a series...writing a series...WOW! I learned a lot. She has many many characters in her books. AND...she keeps them all in order. No easy task.
The back of one of her books states.... "Welcome to Willow Ridge, Missouri! In this cozy Amish town along the banks of the river, the Old Ways are celebrated at the Sweet Seasons Bakery Café, and love is a gift God gives with grace..."
We have many Amish families starting to live in my town, and so I am going to enjoy these Amish books.
Dear Charlotte, It was a pleasure and privilege to meet you. Thank you for your time to come and speak with us.
My takeaway from your lecture: "Create a hook that an editor can't say no to."
(among other things that I feverishly wrote down while you spoke!)
You are a delight.
I wish you many blessings as you continue to bless others with your God given talent for writing.
