So - what is her 'call story'?
My 'Call' story didn't include a call.
Every year at the ACFW conference the acquiring editor for Heartsong Presents gives a contract to an unpublished author. I was so hopeful! I knew there was a chance it could be me. The Heartsong editor, Tracie Peterson, had a book from me and we'd talked and done some revisions but I'd never gotten that sale.
The moment came for that Barbour announcement and Tracie........said someone else’s name and there’s only one, so okay, I’ve been rejected before. I kind of expect it. And then she said, “And this year we’re giving two contracts to first time authors. We’re offering a contract to Mary Connealy .” I get chills saying that! It was a wonderful, thrilling shocking moment. I had to go up and get the contract, in front of 350 other writers, all clapping. A great, great moment in my life.
WHAT A GREAT STORY! Fabulous! (and your readers are SOOOOO glad)
