Last week I found out that King’s Folly is a finalist for the 2017 Christy Awards.
Yay! I’m so excited and honored. 😀
In past years, the awards banquet was held during the International Christian Retail Show, but the Christy Award is now run by the The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA), so this year’s event is going to be different. ECPA is putting on a half-day conference for storytellers called The Art of Writing. And while the lineup of that event sounds amazing (Karen Kingsbury and Andrew Peterson, just to name two), I had no intention of going. My husband has to work, and the introvert in me hates going to such things without someone I know really well.
But then my friend Mindy, who runs the Quirky Faith blog, said she’d come with me. (She drove me to Seattle two weeks ago to meet Jon Acuff.) I took a couple days to pray about it, then said, “Yes, I will do this!”
And she said, “Whoo hoo!” (And instantly started making plans for us to try and meet Dave Ramsey!)
Then my sweet mother-in-law gave me miles for a plane ticket! ❤
To celebrate, I’m having a sale in my author bookstore. Everything is 30% off with the discount code “CHRISTY”—while supplies last. (I only have two copies of To Darkness Fled!) That puts paperback copies of Replication at only $4.20 each!
So if you’ve been meaning to order King’s Folly, or if you want to get a head start on your Christmas shopping, here is a great opportunity. Please feel free to spread the word!

Opportunities like these don’t happen everyday, so I’m excited that I am able to seize the moment and enjoy it for what it is: a chance to go on a great adventure with a dear friend and make some fabulous memories. 🙂
