GUNS OF PROVIDENCE, had me come to St. Louis for the international Christian publishers' trade show. This was my fourth time signing books at CBA. I'm grateful for my gracious handler, Rob Hajicek, whom I met when I spoke at the Reformation Faire last October in Illinois. He arranged for a signing and talk at the Vision Family Library in St. Charles. We began at 7:30 and I got going, readers egging me on with good questions, and didn't stop until after 10:00 pm (of course for me it was only 8:00 pm--the night was young!). It was fun to see folks I know from Tacoma, the Allan clan, attending (Andy studying at Covenant Seminary). Rob then took me back to the Crowne Plaza Hotel downtown to my spacious suite (thank you Ian Thompson at P&R), with an unobstructed, 26th floor view of the river, bridges and of course the St. Louis Arch (the actual view I had out my window below).
Early morning flight to Albany to spend some time with my son, Cedric, who is training and racing at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid.
