A note from Ruth Logan Herne:
Seekerville is thrilled to announce that owner/founder of Books & Such Literary Janet Grant will be visiting us on April 23rd to share her humor and wisdom about Christian fiction. Janet has been a leader in the ongoing development of Christian fiction as a genre and we are delighted that she's willing to take a day a play with us.
Send Ruthy any questions you might have about the industry, the standards, Janet's agency, their protocol, advice, etc. Take this opportunity to pick the brain of one of the leading ladies on the business side of Christian fiction, a successful businesswoman, savvy deal-maker and honored agent.
Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org Ruthy is looking forward to hearing from you and ALL questions remain confidential between you and Ruthy.
And mark your calendars for March 30th when Seekerville is honored to Ruthy's interview with the leading lady of Christian fiction Francine Rivers! Come visit with a gal whose talent and humility would be at odds in an average person but not in Francine. Lunch is available for a nominal fee and breakfast will be served on the Haddasah deck overlooking the Jericho vineyards. Dinner on your own.
