Laurie Tomlinson has a great idea–a pre-conference mix and mingle where writers can get to know one another before the ACFW conference in St. Louis, Missouri, September 25-27th. Laurie has links to all the websites on her blog.
For those who have not met me, here’s my answers to Laurie’s questions:
Name: Brandy Vallance
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
What you write/tagline/trademark: Inspirational historical romance in the Victorian time period. Tagline: A Purveyor of Fine Words.
Place in the book world: 2013 Operation First Novelist Winner, 2012 ACFW Genesis Winner (historical romance). My first novel, The Covered Deep, releases on October 14th with Worthy Publishing. Represented by Rachelle Gardner of Books & Such Literary Management.
On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: All the hugs. I kept Laurie’s answer. 🙂
The unique talking point that will get you going for hours: BBC period dramas. The Victorian time period. Tea. England. Scotland. Archaeology. History. Romance. Supernatural experiences of God. I love deep conversations!
Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: Husband, son, daughter, great dane, cat.
Conference goals we can pray for? Divine appointments.
Anything we can celebrate with you? The Covered Deep releases next month! Also, if you happen to be local to Colorado Springs, I am having a book launch party on October 18th.
One or two ways we can help you build your platform? Please spread the word about The Covered Deep and when you read it, leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. I’m available for interviews and book giveaways (depending on the date). Here’s my Facebook Author Page if you are interested in liking it. You can also find me on Twitter and Pinterest.
I’m excited about seeing everyone at the ACFW conference!
