    You are such an encourager and coach to so many of us. Thank you dear friend for remaining faithful to your call. God bless you today.

    • And thank YOU for your kind words, Glenda. Blessings on your project! 🙂

  • Judith Robl

    For anyone in the Kansas City area or who can get to Kansas City without much difficulty, I’ve attended the HACWN Conference several times. It’s really a good one. It’s small enough that a newbie is not overwhelmed, but it attracts some stellar teachers, agents, and editors. It also won’t break the bank. Best of all, you become family. I can’t be there this year, and I’m missing it already. 🙁

    • Thanks for the confirmation, Judith. I haven’t yet had the privilege of being at HACWN, but I’ve heard great things about it. Maybe we’ll meet up there one of these days!

    Happy to help, Vonda.
