My plan this morning had been to get back to writing my 365 day journey. However, I came across something in my email this morning that I’m quite excited about. It’s the ACFW Pre-Conference Mix and Mingle. Laurie Tomlinson has been gracious enough to start this and I’m excited to participate. All you have to do is answer a few questions, which I’ve put below. If you’d like to join in the fun and add yourself to the list, please click this link: laurietomlinson.com and if you don’t have a website, please put your answers in the comments section below.
Name: Kristena Tunstall
Location: JBER, Alaska (Joint Base Elmendorf AFB/Fort Richardson right next to Anchorage)
What you write/tagline/trademark: Contemporary Romance / “Stories of grace in the beautiful mess”
Place in the book world: While I’m not published (yet 🙂 ), my hope and prayer is I will find an agent who’d like to represent me at the ACFW Conference this year. I will be pitching two different books this year. One is a memoir about what happened with my daughter after she contracted E. coli and then my grief journey that followed after losing her. My other book is a women’s fiction novel.
On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: The more hugs the merrier. 🙂
The unique talking point that will get you going for hours: Talking about my daughter 🙂
Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My husband, our daughter/niece, and of course Sierra (our Boxer), Cody (our Jack Russel Terrier), and Bandit (my sweet little kitty, only he’s not so little)
Conference goals we can pray for? That while I pitch my daughter’s book, an agent will want to find out more to possibly represent me. And that while I’m pitching her book, if I cry, that I will be able to keep the tears under control as this story is very close to my heart.
Anything we can celebrate with you? That I was able to not only get my memoir finished in time for conference, but that I’ve worked very hard with my editor, Dierdre Lockhart, as she has been a literal God send in my life and how she helped me to make this story so much better as a result.
One or two ways we can help you build your platform? If you could follow me on this website, Networked Blogs, Google+, Twitter, and my Kristena Tunstall Author Facebook page on the right, and my Mommy’s Angel in Heaven Facebook page: facebook.com/mommysangelinheavenwebsite.
I want to personally thank you for taking the time to stop by my site. I look forward to stopping by and “meeting” all the others who’ve joined in and hopefully being able to meet you at conference.
