Photos of Conference

Would you like to see a few photos of the GPCWC earlier this month? But of course you would!

Friend and fellow-blogger, Susan Reinhardt graciously opened her home to my husband and I so I could attend the conference. She even let us sleep in her PURPLE bedroom. We met her mom, Anna, who is sweeter than a snickerdoodle on a china plate!

Susan Panzica, Suze and I. Susan P is a thoughtful, godly woman who prayed for us right before we pitched our books. And it worked! Both of us had editors ask for proposals.

Suze, me and Elaine Miller, a fellow-client of our aweome Diana Flegal from Hartline.
Elaine encourages everyone within fifty countries of her. She is sunshine in a lady suit.

I am going over my pitch one last time, before my last appointment. It's great to plan, but the best secret is to rely on the leading of the Lord. I love when He puts words in my mouth that this little pea brain could not have thought of--then I know it's Him!

A final thanks to Suze, who showed me the trapeze ropes at this huge conference, reassured me when I was stressed out, and calmed me down when they advertised coffee but had none.
You are one precious treasure!

In case you missed my post on the 5 Character Traits to Take to a Conference, I am guest posting it at Hartline Literary Agency blog today.  Please clilck on the red link to stop by and say "hey."

Happy Wednesday!

  8. How wonderful to see two of my favourite 'blog ladies' in one photo-you and Suze. I'm excited for both you! Friendships are precious gifts from God.

  9. Jeanette,
    One of the highlights of the conference was meeting and spending time with you, and Susan of course. So great to meet someone who I feel is a friend already ;D
    Praying for a great response to your proposal!

  10. Thanks for sharing your photo's, I saw some on Susan's blog. I am a little bit jealous of course, it looks like so much fun to meet other bloggers/writers!

  11. Suze is a treasure! And you are too. :)

    Happy weekend,

  13. Jeanette:
    Nice pics. Looks like you had a productive time at that conference.

    Blessings on you and yours,

  14. I enjoyed the pictures very much. I do love it when we open our mouths to speak and God puts words in there. That is too awesome.

  15. Hi Jen -

    I'm sorry I'm late to the party.

    What a super post! Thank you for your kind words. How I wish we lived closer together.

    Thanks to everyone, who commented. I hope we get to meet in person someday. Hmm, I wonder if they have writers conferences in heaven. :)



Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
