ICRS - Denver 2009 - Zondervan

I just returned from my trip to Denver to the International Christian Retail Show. This was my first time at ICRS, and I was impressed by the number of retailers and publishers (although I heard the count was down from recent years) and all the fantastic authors in attendance. It was great meeting people from Zondervan--who had an awesome presence at the event.
Pictured here with Zondervan authors Robin Jones Gunn and Amy Clipston, and my editor, Sue Brower.
Monday afternoon, I attended a reception for Zondervan authors at the PEAKS Lounge, Hyatt Regency Hotel where we had a gorgeous view of Denver and the Rockies. Pictured below with Amy Clipston, Sue Brower, Terri Blackstock, and Camy Tang. Front row: Amberly Collins, Robin Lee Hatcher, Karen Kingsbury and Brandilyn Collins.

And here with Author Care Director, Joyce Ondersma. I want to thank everyone from Zonderan for their support of Snow Melts in Spring and for being such a wonderful publisher to work with! And can I add a special thanks for the Sony E-Reader!!! (What a surprise when we opened our thank you gift from Z following the author reception--you folks are the BEST!)
