2017 ACFW conference mix & mingle


It’s this week, y’all!!

Welcome to the fifth annual pre-conference mix and mingle, the event with the cheesy name but serious fun. In case you’re new here and have no idea what this is all about, it’s just a little link up with questions that help us get to know each other before conference arrives. I’ve loved the opportunity to “meet” people ahead of time, especially that first year in Indianapolis when I was a newbie  🙂 At the bottom of this post, there’s a little link-up with friends who will be there and their own get-to-know-you posts.

Here’s how to play:

– Copy/paste the questions and fill out your own answers in a post on your own website and paste the URL to that specific post (not your homepage) using this handy link-up tool. Just click on the button below that says “Add your link”. If you don’t have a website, feel free to answer the questions in the comments below!

– Make sure to link back to this post after you fill out your answers so any of your readers who are conference attendees can participate, too! The more, the merrier.

– Click through the links below to get to know other conference attendees!

Here are my answers!

Name: Laurie Tomlinson

Location: Tulsa, OK

What you write/tagline/trademark: I write clean + inspirational contemporary romance!

Place in the book world: Published author of one novel and one novella with a few projects currently on submission.

On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: All the hugs.

Something VERY serious: How do you take your Starbucks? Not a coffee drinker, but chai or iced Passion-Tango tea, please!

The unique talking points that will get you going for hours: Planners, pens, cooking, Texas Longhorns football, and whatever TV show I’m currently watching (Try Firefly)!

Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My husband, 6-year-old daughter, and 2-year-old son. You’d better believe I’ll be missing my yellow Lab snuggles, too!

Conference goals we can pray for? I’ll only be there Friday and Saturday, but I’m praying for productive writing time and fellowship <3

Anything we can celebrate with you? Two book releases since our last conference: That’s When I Knew in the Love at First Laugh collection and With No Reservations, published by Harlequin Heartwarming!

One or two ways we can help you build your platform? You can like my author page on Facebook and sign up for my email list by clicking here!

Your turn!

Be sure to check out who’s going to conference as (hopefully) the links start showing up!

    I love this, Lauri! I remember us both having to run out every few hours a couple years ago because our babes are the same age and were nursing! Looking forward to seeing you again!

    Thanks for putting this together, Laurie. I am in serious need of a new planner (I can’t do the whole electronic organization thing)….Do you have a type that is a favorite?
