I asked Rebecca if she would share with us her experience at the first Christian Fiction Readers Retreat.  I am definitely adding it to my list of retreats/conferences for next year.  Thanks for sharing Rebecca.

Christian Fiction Readers Retreat Makes an Impressive Debut!

christ reader retreatDrawing readers, reviewers, bloggers and aspiring writers from up and down the East Coast (and beyond!), the August 24, 2016  Christian Fiction Readers Retreat in Nashville, Tennessee made its impressive debut. Scheduling a plethora of activities, the retreat planners offered avid readers the opportunity to personally inter-act with over thirty authors; enjoying author panels, speed chats, book signings, praise and worship, lunch time conversation, generous giveaways, and wonderful memories for months to come!

Orchestrated by a trio of bloggers, Carrie Booth Schmidt (“Reading is My Superpower”), Annie JC (“Just Commonly”) and Bonnie Roof (“Overcoming with God”),  the readers retreat quietly morphed from a vision into a reality.

Was it worth an eight hour road trip twice in three days?? Absolutely! Although, on the trip home, my dear husband did say, “Next year when you go to this event, we will fly”. Next year???? . . . .  music to my ears!
