2016 ACFW Mix & Mingle

2016 ACFW Mix & Mingle

This week I'm linking up with Laurie Tomlinson and joining in the fun of her pre-conference mix and mingle! A few weeks ago I posted about how I'm going to the ACFW Conference in Nashville this August. While I'm stoked about getting the chance to meet other writers/authors and learn all I can from the amazing workshops, I'm also a little terrified seeing as how I know absolutely no one else who is going! 

I'm answering some of her questions and linking up in order to get to know some of the other attendees before we arrive!

Here are my answers!

Name: Amanda Everett

Location: Blacksburg, VA

What you write/tagline/trademark: Contemporary Fiction aimed at young women in college/ "Stories of grace, hope, and love for the modern girl."

Place in the book world: I'm a total newbie, currently working on my first novel!

On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: Haha, this question cracked me up.  I'm usually not an instigator when it comes to hugs, but I will gladly reciprocate!

Something VERY serious: How do you take your Starbucks? My husband is the serious coffee drinker in our house while I prefer the frou-frou drinks...caramel macchiatos, iced chai tea lattes and peppermint mochas are my fave.

The unique talking points that will get you going for hours: college ministry, foster care, pregnancy resource centers, Virginia Tech, recipes/cooking, and all things Southern

Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My husband of 5 years, Jonathan.

Conference goals we can pray for? This is my first conference so I'm praying for lots of great connections, encouragement, and direction in my writing journey

Anything we can celebrate with you? I reached my half-way mark with my first novel this past week!

One or two ways we can help you build your platform? You can like my Facebook page, and follow me on Instagram and Pinterest!

I'm SO looking forward to meeting everyone at the conference! Thanks for hosting, Laurie!
