FOUR THINGS ALREADY HOPPING
1 2009 started with a road trip with Christian Writers Guild Managing Editor Andy Scheer and Admissions and Marketing Manager Paul Finch to a reception in Grand Junction, way across the other side of Colorado. It was gorgeous driving through the mountains for hundreds of miles to get there. Not so gorgeous coming back the next day when we had free parking most of the way (snow and traffic).
But we were wonderfully hosted at the Canyon View Vineyard Church by Karla Kassebaum and The Lord’s Write Hand writers group. They were most kind and responsive as Paul shared about the Guild, Andy and I conducted a thick-skinned manuscript critique clinic, and I did a little Q&A. Q & A.
Signing for Karla and her daughter Hannah.
2 I came home to meet again with former Washington Redskins coach and now NASCAR race team owner Joe Gibbs as we try to put the finishing touches on his motivational book Game Plan for Life. It is set to release this summer from Tyndale.
3 Tonight I will appear on the History Channel's Seven Signs of the Apocalypse, 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific, 8 p.m. Central, and 7 p.m. Mountain. It will probably be re-run if you can't catch it tonight.
4 Later this week Dianna and I leave for Australia to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary and so I can tick off one more item from my bucket list: climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge. I'll share photos or where flowers may be sent. :)
