I meet "HorseCrazyGirl" and Little Sister!

HorseCrazyGirl and Me; Little Sister to the right
Here in the town near "Andi's Ranch," I met
Horse Crazy Girl and Little Sister. Their grandparents' booth was just across the hall from us. We had a lot of fun talking, and they helped me pack up! Thanks, Ladies! I miss you already . . .

    2. Is your sister "Mellisa" and or "Calamity rene"?

    3. Who, me? (Mrs. M) No, neither are my little sisters. :-) They are students I've met. THEY are sisters, and Calamity took a writer's class from me, and Melissa is my illustrator for the Goldtown books. They live a few hours from me and we met in person at a writers conference last spring. :-)

      But maybe you weren't asking ME that question? LOL

  3. So lucky for you to meet them, HorseCrazyGirl and her little sister! Isn't Mrs. Marlow so much fun? My sister and I enjoyed spending time with her. (I sure wish I'd gone to both days of the conference, but it was fun getting to see you on the last day!)
    So glad you girls got to meet her!

  4. It's fun to meed your readers and fun to hang out with Mrs. Marlow at her booth. I've done it quite a bit when my brother's booth (Light of Faith) wasn't busy. ;)

  7. Mrs. M, do you always wear skirts?

    Replies
    1. Nope. I wear skirts to conventions because it is professional to do so, since I am a vendor. But mostly I wear jeans and shorts. Except I usually wear skirts to church.

  12. I just ordered Family Secret and trouble with treasure on Amazon. I can not wait for it to get here!!! I was a vendor at a homeschool convention and I wore a skirt on Friday, but I actually sold more stuff on Saturday when I wore jeans :-) . It is good to look professional though.

    1. Oh, how exciting! I think you will enjoy those titles. I'm wondering why you chose those particular 2 titles. Just curious. :-)
      Which convention were you vendoring at?

      I used to wear jeans (long ago at my first conventions), but because I'm an adult, professional vendor, it's better for me to dress like . . . well, like an adult, professional vendor. LOL

      If I were still a teen, I would probably wear what the rest of the teens are wearing. It's nice that you can be flexible at your booth! What do you sell? If you told me already, I apologize. As you can see, the comments pile up and the names get all mixed up in my head on who is doing or writing what. I know YOU, Audrey, as the "Great Undoing Chore Scandal" writer. Right? Or are you a different Audrey?

      This could get very funny and confusing! :-)

  13. Mrs. Marlow,
    What do you want us to call you when we ask you questions on the blog?

    1. If you're asking questions related to something "Andi" has written, then calling me 'Andi' is fine. If it is a general question about life, writing, or whatever, then it is fine to call me "Susan," since I think we are all getting to be good friends (so long as that's okay with your folks).

  14. Yes, I am the one an only Audrey. I watched all the book trailers and read all the sample chapters, and those were the two that put me in extreme suspense, so I had to get the books to find out!!!
    I also got my sister the first circle c beginnings. She loves to read and is really good at it.
    I was a young entrepreneur at the Afhe homeschool convention. Actually, what I wore made no difference. All the kids from last year said they sold a lot more stuff on Saturday, but it was still fun to look professional :-). I sold dish scrubbies, coasters, and dish cloths/ doilys. This next year I am adding on fleece scarves, soap, and candles. I sold out on a lot of my products last year, so I making double of everything I sold out of for next year.
    Okay Susan :-), thanks for answering my questions!

    1. So, have you read any of the CCA before? Your story is really "in character," so I just wondered . . .
      I love the AFHE (Arizona, right?)! We couldn't go this year, but hope to attend in 2014. Maybe we can meet, like I met HorseCrazyGal this year!

  15. Yes, I own Price of Truth and Sanfransisco Smugglers. I have been buying the books out of order. Yes, in AZ. I would love to meet you!

  16. Jenny Grant lives in Tacoma Washington, right?
    (I can't find where she lives on the books.) :P
    I am thinking about writing a story with her in it... :)
    thanks,

    1. Andi tells her mother where Jenny is from in the letter she writes home, I believe, in the San Fran. book.
      But yes, you are right. Jenny is a sawmill owner's daughter from Tacoma, WA (my hometown). :-)

      Here is a link to a recent blog post (with pictures) about Jenny and Tacoma:
