In Others’ Words: Worth a Thousand – 2014 ACFW Conference

2014 ACFW Gala Collage

St. Louis ACFW 2014 collage


I’m just back from St. Louis and the 2014 ACFW Conference. I’ll let the pictures tell the story, as I’m staring down an October 6 deadline for turning in rewrites on my novel, Crazy Little Thing Called Love — the first one in my Destination Wedding series that releases in 2015.

While I didn’t win the Carol Award for Contemporary Romance, I had a wonderful time — and especially enjoyed having my husband with me for the gala! He flew in Saturday just for the event — and he wore his tux! Congratulations to author Becky Wade, who did win — and I also want to mention author Deborah Rainey, who was the other finalist. (You’ll see a photo of the 3 of us on the right-hand side of the blue framed collage.)

I’ll be back blogging next week — and diving into the novella, Can’t Buy Me Love, for the same series!

What have you been up to?

      Yes, Andrew, it was a lot of fun.
      But I truly did keep looking over my shoulder for you — hoping you’d say “Surprise! I made it!”

        I wish that had been possible!

        Next year in Jerusalem, as they say.

    Great quote and your photos (& eye) are stellar. I learned long ago, and am still learning, that when we forgive and choose love we are most in God’s image and have full access to his freeing love and power. Selah.

    Beth, wish I could have been there. I hear that next year’s is in Dallas. I so hope so. I’m going to do my best to be there. I can’t imagine being in a room with so many faces I have yet to meet but have grown to love. Thank you for sharing photos of the special time.

    Oh! LOVED this collage. I missed being there so badly, so it’s great to see the pictures. Congrats again on your nomination, and praying for you as you stare down that deadline. Go, Beth, go!
