ACFW 2017: It’s Conference Time!!!

 

Okay friends…I’ve been a little radio silent on the blog lately…and social media.  The new school year and travel has thrown off my routine a bit. I’m hoping to get back to regularity in my writing routine after I return from the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference. This year is my second year attending conference, and I can’t wait for a few days to immerse myself in the writing world.

So this post is  part of a fun little mixer hosted by Laurie Tomlinson in order for conference goers to connect a little before we arrive. Thanks Laurie for making this happen!

Here’s how to play:

– Copy/paste the questions and fill out your own answers in a post on your own website and paste the URL to that specific post (not your homepage) using the handy link-up tool on Laurie’s page. Just click on the button at the bottom of her original post that says “Add your link”. If you don’t have a website, feel free to answer the questions in her comments!

– Make sure to link back to Laurie’s post after you fill out your answers so any of your readers who are conference attendees can participate, too! The more, the merrier.

– Click through the links on her page to get to know other conference attendees!

Here are my answers!

Name: Amanda Cox

Location: Chattanooga, TN

What you write/tagline/trademark: I write stories that dig into the intricacies of our connection with God and with one another.

Place in the book world: Unpublished with a couple projects looking for their publishing home

On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: Uhh…. Well if you are a hugger I’m game. But I am not a hug initiator…nope….

Something VERY serious: How do you take your Starbucks? All the coffee. Anywhere. Any kind. But I do have a special fondness for the seasonal Caramel Brûlée Latte 🙂

The unique talking points that will get you going for hours: Kids, pets, Character arcs. Honestly, I’m not a big talker, but I could listen to other people all day. (Unless I know you really well, in which case I can have a tendency to never shut up….I don’t talk to adults that often…so….)

Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My husband and three kids (ages 2,4, and 6). My sweet senior golden retriever and our new addition, a bengal kitten.

Conference goals we can pray for? Making new connections with writer friends. Boldness. A creativity renewal. I just feel a need for fresh life to be breathed into my writing life.

Anything we can celebrate with you? Since conference last year, I’ve completed a novel that had been bouncing around in my mind. Looking forward for the opportunity to pitch it this year :). Mostly because I just love talking about this story :D.

One or two ways we can help you build your platform? You can like my author page on Facebook, and/or follow me on Twitter.

I hope to meet you all in Dallas next week!

    1. I’m excited too! Last year I went as a loner, and met people along the way. Which was fun in its own terrifying way ;). Looking forward to going and knowing a few people this year!!

    1. I should come join you all! I’ve contemplated it, but haven’t made the leap yet. I really would enjoy having face-to-face time with other writers. I hope we get a chance to meet up while in Texas!

    1. The caramel brûlée has vanilla and caramel flavors with the taste of the the caramelized sugar you get on a creme brûlée :D. Yum! They normally have it around Christmas time. Hope to see you in TX!!
