AFHE Convention!

We finally did it! The 2017 AFHE Homeschool Convention!!

In short, it was….perfect!!

SO many pictures, I decided to do a slideshow =)

A favorite part of the weekend was getting to meet one of my favorite authors Chuck Black! If you guys haven’t read his books you’re really missing out! He and his family recognized me all weekend (not because I stalked them or anything crazy like that) and I even made a few sales for them just by being enthusiastic about his books! That was awesome!2017-07-14-3

I was honored to meet an elderly Messianic Jew who bought my book and ordered a metal star from the guy who made mine. As I turned to sign his book, another author leaned over and asked, “Who’s are you signing?” Without thinking I instantly started to say the name of the elderly Messianic Jew in my book. “Mr. Jashel” of course I instantly teared up and the other author was so awesome and understanding and insisted I get a picture with the customer. That was a definite highlight of the weekend.


The whole convention was absolutely amazing in pretty much every way! We were so blessed and got to meet lots of really awesome people!

We’ve got the Generation Rising website up and running!! Let us know what you think!

So, I imagined that after the conference I would jump with both feet into school….*ahem*….we’ll see when that happens….

This week I wrote a short story about a character in my novel in one of the scenes,
but from their perspective! (Way too much fun!) I plan on posting that sometime soon. πŸ™‚

Keep Writing!!

  2. That is SO neat!! Like I told Kate, I would love an opportunity like that; is this something that you all put together, or you all participated in?

    1. Yes! We put Generation Rising together just this year. It was actually just a group of young people from out church (+ one more likeminded author). I really hope you get an opportunity to do something like that too! I can’t express how much fun it is!

  3. So glad you had an awesome time at that convention! I’ve had a booth at a couple conventions before and it’s always SO much fun to talk to people, especially those who enjoy writing! That’s awesome that you got to meet Chuck Black and that he bought your book; how exciting!! He was at a conference my family attended a couple years ago and my sister got to meet him and bought a few more of his books. I haven’t read any of his stories, but I’m definitely putting them on my TBR list.

    Loved getting to see all the pictures of people you got to meet and encourage. Thanks so much for sharing. I always love reading an author’s posts on writing. πŸ™‚
