Ah, the joy of book people.
I’ve been in Nashville Tennessee this week attending the American Christian Fiction Writers conference, which means I’ve spent the last two days around book people.
I love book people. I am a book person, and nothing makes me happier than to sit around and talk books with other book people. Sure, I’m a writer, but I go all fan-girl on the author of my latest literary crave just like every other reader. I suspect I made a fool of myself gushing to Kristy Cambron over The Ringmaster’s Wife, a splendid book that’s been my audiobook companion on the long drive to Nashville.
My DestiKNITions blog sends me on yarn- and not-so-yarn-related adventures when I travel, and Nashville was no different. Which is how Lenora Worth, Lynette Eason, and I found ourselves making a quick little excursion yesterday morning to a donut shop and a bookstore. When we all walked into the bookstore, we all instinctively stopped, inhaled that marvelous scent that all bookstores have, and smiled. Home. Books. Our kind.
It’s fun to watch Lynette win an award. I love to teach The Chunky Method and help writers discover their productivity. It’s great to get a chance to promote my latest Love Inspired novel and my new indie series. All these things are good.
But spending three days in the company of book people and books? That’s the best of all.
What about you? Where do you meet your fellow book people?
