Letter from the Publisher

October 1st 2010

Dear Readers,

Hi folks, well September is gone, fall has arrived, and I can feel the snow nipping at our heels. LOL…just kidding. For any of you that were there, wasn’t the ACFW conference just awesome! I got to love on a ton of people that I had only ever known by email, eat fabulous and fattening food, and hang out with some of the best folks in our Christian fiction industry.

In case any of you would like to see some photos, I have a public link to my Facebook album  so you don’t have to have an account to see them HERE.

This month we’ve got some great columns as usual. I wish I could list more of them on the cover! Nancy Moser has a truly beautiful devotion entitled “More.” Wanda Dyson gives us great Conference Wrap-up from ACFW. And Brandilyn is taking us to the next writing lesson of “Subtexting in Dialogue.”

We have a couple columns ending, and a couple on hiatus till the new year and some redirection, but I’m always looking for great column ideas to keep us fresh and in the know. LOL…we’ve got a couple goodies in the works, so stay tuned.

Christmas will swiftly be upon us and I may be able to give our dedicated CFBA reviewers a much needed break from the epic barrage of books we’ve been reviewing over the last few months…because they are going to need it. We have dynamite book selections coming up for the new year.

There is a great article about the state of Christian fiction in Christian Marketplace. And a Publishers Weekly article about the conference over HERE.

Well that’s what we’re all about folks, Christian fiction…reading…writing…and enjoying. So enjoy your month of October!

God bless and keep you all.
