Are You Attending Christian Store Week?

Saturday, October 1, 2011

If you're a writer are you signing at a Christian Bookstore this week? If you're a reader are you attending a signing or visiting your local Christian Bookstore? This is going to be a great week, don't miss out on the fun in your area and say thank you to the people who keep our Christian Stores open. I love browsing through a Christian Bookstore. Love looking for new books, new music, and timeless ones as well.

I have the honor of signing at The Logos Christian Bookstore in Alexandria, Kentucky on October 8th. Click Here for directions. I'm really looking forward to this opportunity and plan on enjoying myself immensely. Do I want to sell some books? Of course. But more than that I want to talk to readers of Christian Fiction and maybe even some readers who've never read a Christian novel. I love finding out what people are reading and why.

I've always been in awe of the readers who are so very gracious that they choose my book among all the book choices out there to read. They encourage me by purchasing my book and in turn I hope I encourage them with my words. I hope I encourage them by escaping into the past with me to discover faith for the future.

I've read some interesting blog posts recently. Check out Katie Ganshert's blog at The WordServe Water Cooler, Love the Reader. And then visit  Donald Miller and The Best Writing Advice  at his blog for some more insights about readers and writers.

So what are you waiting for? Join in the fun this week.  And let me know where you are signing or what store you are planning to visit if you're a reader.  And if you are joining me at Logos in Alexandria, Kentucky, bring your smile because my awesome hubby will be taking pictures and your bound to end up on this blog as you are caught supporting Christian Store Week! Is it too early to start shopping for Christmas? If so it's not too early to start shopping for Sweetest Day, October 15th.


  1. I'll be signing books at The Well in McPherson, Kansas with authors Judith Miller, Nancy Moser and Kim Vogel Sawyer. We're celebrating Christian Store Week on Thursday, Oct. 6, taking advantage of the store's late Thursday hours and signing from 6-9 p.m. Hope to see some of our Kansas readers, friends and family (often one and the same!) there!

  2. Hi Deb!
    It sounds like you gals are going to have a blast! Wish I could be there. I was relieved to find out another author Shellie Neumeier,“Summer in Oakville,” will be signing with me as well. So much fun when you have company and get to make a new friend too. Enjoy your special time with the others, Deb.

  3. Hi Jillian,
    I'll be signing at Words of Wisdom in Swansea, IL. That store has been an amazing help to me since my first book came out. I'll be there Oct. 8, from 1-4 with my co-author signing We're Not Blended We're Pureed.

  4. Hi, Jillian! I have the privilege of providing an Author's Corner on Wednesday, October 5th, at the Living Word Bookstore in Onalaska (LaCrosse), Wisconsin. I'll sign books, but also answer any "Ask the Author" questions about Christian fiction, writing, or topics addressed in my books. Actually, customers could technically ask for directions to the restroom, too. But I'm hoping to meet and talk with radio listeners and novel readers during that time (I believe it's 11-3). Then I'm visiting one of the best apple orchards in the Midwest before heading home!

  5. Hi Diana!
    I love the cover of your book and the title. Having a sense of humor makes everything easier, doesn't it? Have a blast on Oct.8th, that's my day too. There's a lot of people that are going to want that book. Way to go!

  6. Hi Cynthia!
    It's so nice to see you and all the others here visiting today. Thanks for taking the time. I love hearing what everyone is doing and I'm sure others will as well. That's a great idea about "Ask the Author" questions. I'll have to hear back from everyone about how it went. You've got to take pics of the apple orchard and post them. Sounds like fun! Enjoy your awesome day.

  7. Hi, Jillian,

    Mary Connealy and I will be signing at Christian Book and Gift in Rochester MN on Oct. 7th and at the Burnsville MN store Oct. 8th from 10-12 and the Maple Grove MN store Oct. 8th from 2-4 pm.

    Love Christian Store Week!

  8. Hi Jillian!

    I'll be signing at Crosspointe Christian Store in Yuba City CA on Saturday October 8th, from 1-5 PM.
    Looking forward to this wonderful celebration!

  9. Hey there Erica,
    Wow! You and Mary are going to be busy! The two of you together will be great. So glad to see you are keeping your Christian Stores busy. Have a blast and enjoy!

  10. Hi Candace!
    Looks like you'll be busy too. Two stores in one week. Celebrate!

  11. Hi again Candace,
    Every time I'm rushed out the door I make a mistake. Even though it's not two stores it's 4 hours and you'll be busy. Have a great signing!

  12. Hi Jillian. I'll be signing at The Word Christian Store in Lampasas Texas on Wednesday from 4-6. Lynette Sowell and Renae Brumbaugh will be joining me. Thanks so much for allowing us to post here and have a great week!

  13. Hey Vanetta!

    Nice to hear from you. I hope you ladies have a great experience. And I just saw the post at The WordServe Water Cooler which could help us all out this week. Follow the link:
