Off to the lion’s den…

No, not really. I have the honor of being invited to the Sales Team Meeting at Zondervan—leaving in a few hours, actually—but I’m scared spitless.

Why? Dunno. Maybe because it’s a bunch of sales team members and not friendly fuzzy writers. I can face 400 people at the ACFW Conference but not 50 at the Sales Team meeting. I’m such a basketcase.

Anyway, I’m off to be videotaped (now do you understand my terror?) and introduced to people who will hopefully like me enough to want to sell my book to places like Walmart and Costco, as well as indy Christian book stores and B&N and Borders.

Oh, and I don’t fly well. Doping up with Dramamine now.

Please pray!

P.S.--> I probably won’t blog tomorrow since I’ll be returning late Tuesday night. Behave yourselves while I’m gone.


  1. Camy,
    Don't be afraid of the sales reps :-) They are such great people. If you go there with a heart to love on them and serve them, you'll do great.

    I worked in our bookstore at church for a number of years, and it always amazed me how the sales reps used to say they loved coming to our store. Why? Because we treated them nicely. That's it. Now, considering these were sales reps to only Christian stores, it alway made me wonder how they were treated at some of their other stores?!

    You'll be in my prayers, and I know you will do great.


  2. You'll be wonderful and blow them all away. How could they not love you and want to sell your book?!

    I hope you have a safe trip and my prayers are with you!

  3. Don't worry! You'll do fine. Sales reps are not scary - they're actually kinda nice. :)


  4. Have fun there, Camy! Can't wait to hear how it goes.

  5. I've said a prayer for you Camy! Before you speak, just pray and ask the Lord to give you the words to say. That's one thing that I prayed for you :o)

  6. Praying now!
    You'll have a great time!

  7. Hi Camy. I found you through Christian Blogsphere and am glad I did. It's nice to meet a fellow believer. Don't worry...God is in control.

    Blessings to you. You can come visit me at A Child of God.

  8. Girl, with your quick wit and charming smile, you'll knock their socks off. You've got talent, style, and humor. Just be you...breathe and let them see the fabulous, loud Asian chick that we all know and love!

    You've been through media training, already had yourself video taped twice, endured professional makeup, and a photo shoot...remember all that. You're a pro! Just remember to smile for your close-up!

  9. Said a prayer for you too, Camy. Catch us up when you can!

  10. Hi Camy!

    You did great at our sales conference. You are such a fun and loving character.

    I look forward to spreading the word about your series.

    ...yes...I am still in sales conference.

    shhhhh...don't tell. :-)

  11. And not only do you get to face sales conference, you have a sweet 20-page love letter waiting for you when you get home! (From me, of course.)

    I'm sure you ROCKED that meeting. Lemme tell ya, I'd have killed to have an author like you in one of the many Zzzzzzzz sales conferences I've been in. :-)

  12. You need to get back into this time zone, lady! I can tell when you're gone. The place just isn't the same.

    ; )

    Can't wait for the details ... and I will eventually get over being insanely jealous.
