ACFW-Ohio Comes to Barbour Land!
Okay, so I know I am a day late (and always a dollar short) in blogging this week, but I had a great excuse this time around. VIP visitors superceded my typical-Monday routine as 17 members/guests of the Ohio chapter of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) came for a tour of the Barbour facilities.
I do believe a good time was had by all. We certainly gave them their money's worth in the information department as each of the department VPs or reps provided an overview of their areas of responsibility. Becky, JoAnne, and I each told about the kind of projects we're currently acquiring. Then, after the Barbour employees gave their spiels, we led the group through the offices and warehouse as well as a bonus tour of our automated distribution center. Despite our best efforts at providing an interesting presentation, our guests would still probably list the FREE BOOKS as their favorite part of the tour. Talk about a holy brawl! After all, writers are book lovers first and foremost.
Today, it's been a madcap race of e-mail catch-up, but the end is in sight. Alas, our hallowed Barbour halls are much too quiet now.
I believe I'll start a water-balloon fight with the typesetters and see if that won't liven things up a bit.
Blessings on your publishing journey,
