2014 pre-conference mix and mingle

Today I’m Joining Laurie Tomlinson for a pre-ACFW meet-and-greet questionnaire. If you want a chance to say “I knew them when” come take a peek at some future Christian Fiction authors.


Name: Cara Grandle

Location: Mulino, OR

What you write/tagline/trademark: Western Historical Romance/ Where romance, redemption and the Old West meet.

Place in the book world: Pre-published author represented by Karen Ball with the Steve Laube Agency. Currently working on submitting first manuscript. (I’ve written two more books, but my agent says you can’t say they’re finished unless you’ve completed editing. Soooo…cough, cough, much work ahead)

On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: Hugs, for sure.

The unique talking point that will get you going for hours: I rolled my eyes drolly when I read this one. Cuz I’m a talker. Yup! Pretty much any topic. (That felt more like a confession than a point of common interest.) If you’re shy come find me.

Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My hubby and five kids. (Three boys and two girls)

Conference goals we can pray for? I’m hoping to pitch for two editor appointments.

Anything we can celebrate with you? Sure. My good friend and critique partner’s 23-year-old son just came home from the hospital yesterday alive and well. It was a close run thing, my friends. Celebrating with a great big “Thank you, Jesus!”

One or two ways we can help you build your platform? Yes! You can like my author page on Facebook and Follow my blog!

  1. Hi Cara! I hope you have a great conference! I’ll be one of those shy folks on the fringe. 🙂 I’ve added your appointments to my prayer list, and praise the Lord that your friend’s son is all right!
