What an enjoyable day at the Lifeway store in Buford at the Mall of Georgia. Nora StLaurent was such a gracious hostess who is the book club guru at the store. She has a wonderful personality and so much fun to talk with. And I thought I read a lot, but she has me beat on that score.
I was so impressed with Jeff Struecker and of course, I had to have his biography and his thriller for my son. The store was busy today and I met so many nice readers. The picture of me and the blonde is my dear friend, Connie from Cleveland who drove an hours to come to the signing. Ane Mulligan, The Zone Officer for the Operating Board for the ACFW came as well. We've chatted online, but this was the first time to meet face to face. What a vivacious, lively writer!
Just a geat way to spend a Saturday, and as usual, the staff at Lifeway are super!!

It was a blast finally getting ti hug your neck after being online pals for so long, Brenda. :D

And our Nora is dynamite, isn't she? A beautiful daughter of the King, her laugh is infectious and her spirit is sweet. She's a dear friend.

Hope to see you again in September. :D

Ane it was so good to see you Sat. Yep! Just love that Nora! You'll have to come back when I book sign with Julie Lessman on June 23rd.

And Tracy, mark your calendar for June 23rd. That's a Tuesday, I believe. Hope you can make it then.

I had a great time with you in Buford. Thanks for sending some of your "fans" over to see me after they got done talking to you.

I have enjoyed reading your posts. Some touched me deeply, especially the 4th of July events in your life. My family is very patriotic too. I married a soldier who became a preacher so my ties are very strong. Ann Knowles
