Convention Prep Time!

Hey, y’all! Big doings coming up this weekend! πŸ˜€ The Generation Rising team and I are preparing to have another booth at the AFHE homeschool convention. Last year was a ton of fun, so we’re very excited to do it again! (We might get better pictures this time too…) πŸ˜‰

Anna has been working on the website, logistics of what to bring, and the newsletter. (She’s also pulled off some really snazzy graphics for our new releases.) She’s good at stuff like that.

Malachi Cyr’s stock of his new novel Through All Things (a historical fiction) came–in double the amount expected! Check out his blog tour as well for a super cool giveaway. πŸ˜‰

Tanner Froreich shared pictures of the Grand Canyon, himself riding a dinosaur, and his excitement over the convention. He’ll be bringing his Christian superhero novel The Blue Blur: A Mission Given again this year.

Maggie Joy posted about the convention and shared the world’s most adorable, amazing picture of her stock of The Star Under the City, a World War II novel. ❀

Paul Willis is our website guy, business card and banner guy, and a college student, but he still managed to crank out a second edition of his dystopian novel Crossroads. He’s been too busy to blog, but you should check out his site anyway. πŸ˜‰Β 

Julia Hubler is joining us for the first time with her non-fiction book The Holistic Homestead. We’re excited to have her join us!

We also have three other authors who are unable to make it this year, but you can find out more about them on our website. πŸ˜‰

I’ve been doing some getting ready myself. πŸ˜‰ Attending group meetings, ordering and receiving stock, and helping mock up the table.


A Generation Rising meeting. That’s about as normal as it gets…


A HUGE box


Ooo, look what’s inside!


30 copies of my new novel!! It was amazing and slightly overwhelming to see so many of my books in one place. It’s the longest book I’ve ever written and the most stock I’ve ever bought at one time. πŸ˜‰


All my book boxes ready to go! πŸ˜‰

Our Generation Rising booth will be very fun, and it’s super exciting, but there’s another booth I can’t wait to see as well.

My sister Perry Elisabeth and another local author, Rebekah Jones, are running a booth called Ink and Endsheets. They’re gonna sell their books and short stories, as well as books by a couple other authors, AND tools for writers. It’s gonna be so. amazingly. fantastically. cool. πŸ˜€

A couple sisters and I got to go over to her house yesterday and help assemble little books and WriteMind planners. (We also talked about the Thunderbirds and listened to some pretty cool music. <3)


These basic planners are just waiting for customers to pick a cover and take them home. πŸ˜‰ They’re so customizable, I like to think of them like Subway sandwiches. πŸ˜›


Short stories. ❀ ❀

The convention is just a couple days away! We’d love your prayers for safety and success.

It’s gonna be amazing. πŸ˜€

  1. awesome awesome awesome! I hope it goes well! Sounds like real fun. I went to a homeschool convention only once, when I was.. 6, I guess. But I so want to go to this one!!!! If I was there I’d probably spent my while day just talking to all of you, and buying all the books. XD Hope your sales go through the roof!
    Also.. trying to get an Amazon card so I can buy your lovely book some way. πŸ™‚
