There's a Party Coming!

And you're invited!

What is it? A booksigning with...ready for this?...over a hundred Christian novelists! (No kidding. See the list below.)

When? September 20th, 2008, 1-3 p.m

Where? The Mall of America in Minneapolis.

So if you're going to be anywhere close to The Mall of America, stop by and say "Hey!" (And if you're a born-to-shop person like I am, that place is just this side o' heaven. I mean, the parking lots are so big they're named after states! And there's a restaurant there where you can get ostrich steaks. AND there's an amusement park in the middle of the mall. All that plus a host of Christian novelists? Sing it with me: "Who could ask for anything moooore...")

I'll be there, along with 126 others, handing out chocolates, participating in a panel on writing and publishing, signing books, and generally having a grand time. I'd love to meet you, so (as my Tennessean buds would say) y'all come!

In case the prospect of meeting me and getting free chocolate isn't enough, here are the other novelists you'll get to meet:
  • Tamera Alexander, Jennifer AlLee, A.K. Arenz, Diane Ashley
