Doesn't she look beautiful!

Getting together with other writers is always delightful. Invariably, I come home refreshed and ready to write.

Abingdon Editor Ramona Richards.
The Awards Ceremony on SAT night is so festive, but we all
have to leave Nashville the next morning, and saying goodbye
is always hard! 
For those of you who attend writing conferences and reader events, what do you like best about gathering with writers and readers?

Wishing you abundant blessings,
Debby Giusti

By Debby Giusti
When widowed doctor Ella Jacobsen is attacked and left for dead in her childrens’ clinic, the peace she’s found in Georgia’s Amish country is shattered. Someone is after something in her clinic and wants her out of the way...but what are they looking for? Ella knows only that her life is in the hands of army special agent Zach Swain. Zach can’t resist the vulnerable but headstrong Ella, who stares down danger to care for the people she loves. With one look, the loner soldier goes from investigator to protector. To save Ella, he must uncover the secrets that swirl around the idyllic community. And he needs to do it fast, because Ella is running out of time. Order HERE!

  1. Good morning, Debby!

    I already have Plain Truth on pre-order so I get to start reading in less than 24 hours!

    Thanks for sharing so many wonderful pictures. I was so very sorry to miss ACFW. The chance to spend time with readers and writers is so motivating. Sure you come home exhausted, but my writer's spirit is always refreshed.

  2. Cate, I was like you, I couldn't attend this year, but I so appreciated seeing the photos everyone shared. Thanks so much, Debby.

  3. The conference looked like such fun. I was sorry to miss it this year. Thank you for sharing the photos, Debby.

  4. Cate, missed you at ACFW! The conference was lovely. I enjoyed every minute. Yes, I'm tired, but happy...and ready to work. For me, conferences are a shot in the arm.

    Thanks for mentioning my SEPT release, PLAIN TRUTH! Hope you enjoy the story.


  5. Mary, hope you can make a conference in the future. Seeing so many writers and readers is always special. We had lots of LI authors there too, which makes the conference even more enjoyable!

  6. Missed you, Christine. You had a lovely ad in the program. Love your covers and your stories!

  7. It looks like you had a wonderful time at the conference, Debby. I loved seeing all the pictures. Finding out that four of my agent mates won Carol Awards was quite a thrill.

  8. Keli, can you take credit for their wins? Just kidding!

    The Awards Ceremony was lovely, as always! Love all the talent gathered at the conference. :)

    Missed your smiling face!

  9. Fun pictures. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Great conference and so good to see everyone!! I'm ready to get back to work. Always good to be with people who understand what writing is all about!! Or we at least try!!

  11. Amen, Lenora! I'm still trying to catch up on sleep. :) So good seeing you!
