An Exciting Announcement!

So are you wondering what the announcement is? I bet you have some theories:

  • Another book coming out? Sure. A whole bunch. Several years worth. But that's not the announcement.
  • Working on something new and exciting? Yep. Two things, actually. But that's not it, either.
  • Podcast reached a milestone? Yeah. We posted our 23rd Episode this week. That's pretty cool. But it's not the announcement.
  • Doing a free online webinar in the very near future? I am, actually. Details to come. But that's not it.

Drum roll, please....


I have been asked and have accepted the great honor of being
The Master of Ceremonies for the
2012 LDStorymakers Writers Conference


This should be a whole lot of fun!!

Just shocked.

After seeing your slide show this year, I don't think I can handle that many laughs again . . . and I had no tissue with which to wipe my leaky eyes. Better tone it down next time.

All kidding aside, I don't think I have laughed that hard in a long time, especially the picture/author comparisons and the interview with your kids about genre writers. I really do look forward to having you MC this next year!

Karlene said...

Awesome!!! You were great.

Terry W. Ervin II said...

Well, that sounds pretty darn exciting.

Robin Weeks said...

That's so cool! You were so amazing this year, I can't wait for next year. :) Congrats!

Josi said...

I hope we get a sequel to your romance novel/video. It was pricless.

Rachelle said...

Awesome! You did a great job and your videos were hilarious!

Luisa Perkins said...

Excellent! I look forward to more hilarity!

Laurie LC Lewis said...

Can't miss with you at the mike! Yeah for all of us who get to enjoy that crazy sense of humor!!

Shanda said...

Yay! It will be the BEST CONFERENCE EVER again!

It was my "No one will ever top Sarah" tweet, I know it.

Seriously,though, congratulations. I know you put a huge amount of work and heart into it. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. I'm looking forward to your presentations. :)

Once again, the Storymakers conference folk prove to be people of taste and discernment. Yeehaw!

Danyelle Ferguson said...

YEAH!!! I was actually thinking this past week about who would MC the conference next year and how he or she would find a way to live up to your awesomeness. =) So excited to have you for a second year! I hope there will be a follow up video with your munchkins & genres. Ooh - or even book cover reviews. Fun!

Annette Lyon said...

The burning question I have: How in the WORLD will you top this year?

Mindy said...

You were amazing! Can't wait to see what you're kids will say next.

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

AWESOME!!! I thought you were fantastic this year!

JaredNGarrett said...

Very cool. Much like Billy Crystal and the Oscars. I'll be going to the 2012 conference, so better start prepping your A game.

Jennie said...

You'll be great, but will it put you out of the running for a Whitney? That would be a shame.

Sarah M Eden said...

Jennie--Being the MC for the Storymakers Conference has no impact on a person's eligibility for the Whitney's. In fact, I was a finalist this past year -and- was the MC for the conference. (2012 will be a repeat gig for me!)
Having said that, I'm not eligible, anyway. Both my 2011 titles are rereleases and are, therefore, not eligible.

Lu Ann Brobst Staheli said...

Love it! And I STILL haven't seen the video you did with our critique group. Send it to me, okay?

Angie Cothran said...

You were so great this year! Why shouldn't they ask you again?

Tanya Parker Mills said...

I have a feeling you're the Billy Crystal of Storymakers...I foresee many more such lively, engaging, hilarious conferences.

Melissa J. Cunningham said...

Yeah! I can't wait!

Tristi Pinkston said...

Woohooo!!! Sarah's in da house!!!

Taffy said...

I HAVE to go for sure next year!

Don said...

That is quite the good news. I'm counting the days!

Janette Rallison said...

The LDStorymakers committee are no fools. They know a good thing when they see it. You'll be awesome--again!

Kari Pike said...

Woohoo! You are brilliant and witty and gorgeous! Who wouldn't want you to MC? I hope i get to attend!! hugs~

Donna K. Weaver said...

Again? That's:

alarming, astonishing, awe-inspiring, awful, beautiful, breathtaking, daunting, dreadful, exalted, fearful, fearsome, formidable, frantic, frightening, grand, hairy*, horrible, horrifying, imposing, impressive, intimidating, magnificent, majestic, mean, mind-blowing*, moving, nervous, overwhelming, real gone, shocking, something else, striking, stunning, stupefying, terrible, terrifying, wonderful, wondrous, zero cool

These are all in place of awesome, since I've been using it too much lately.

Can't wait!

Grandma Nadeoui said...

Wooohoo!!!!! I am so proud of you Sarah! Maybe I did not read on long enough, but where and when it it and how much does it cost to go?

Christy said...

Who could do it better! Congrats on all of your milestones!
