I have signed up for my first Christian children's writing conference: Write2Ignite! I don't know whether I can finish my revisions by then, but I am certainly going to try. I am not planning to shove it under any bathroom stalls (oh the stories I've heard) but rather to get to know Christian children's writers in the Carolinas and it would be lovely to say that I'm done. Of course, we know that until a book is published, the work is never done. In any case, if you are a writer in the Carolinas, and have a Christian mindset, check out this conference. It is very reasonably priced and I expect it to be small and intimate.
I'm carpooling with a woman whose work I've admired for many years -- Janice Green. She makes Bible quilts. When I first heard about her, I thought it was a brilliant idea. Like Dominic, she also sells coloring books.
I don't know much about the Christian market, since the bulk of the work I do is in the secular market, and I am changing directions as y'all know. It's gratifying to see overtly Christian movies like Fireproof or Courageous ended up in theatres across the country. Oh, how I long for Cecil B. DeMillesque great Biblical epics.
So, if I disappear for a little while in my revision cave, don't worry. I'll come out eventually. Know that I am working slowly and steadily on my book.
