Christopher Hopper was our master of ceremonies (he's a natural for that!). First the Miller Brothers, authors of the new Hunter Brown series, spoke. They shared funny stories about how they grew up with tales of adventure and how that led them to write. Donita Paul told a story about how truth was better handled by hearers if it was wrapped in the clothing of story telling. Jonathan Rogers explained how fiction is such a great vehicle for leading readers to the goal of learning. I told two stories about how God taught me how He was leading me through my writing journey.
Finally, we took questions from the audience, both in the room and on-line. Remember, we're streaming every event we can to the Internet. You can see our events at this website. Please take part!
One non-tour note that I want to add: Remember that October 1 marked the launch of Marcher Lord Press, the new publishing company dedicated to Christian fantasy and science fiction. Marcher Lord Press is the brainchild of Christian publishing industry veteran Jeff Gerke. Be sure to head on over to www.marcherlordpress.com to take advantage of the free bonus books being given away with the purchase of Marcher Lord Press novels.
