SEPTEMBER – 2020 • HOUSTON, TEXAS
CHRISTIAN AUTHORS NETWORK AT FALL 2020 CPE
The Christian Products Expo (CPE) managed to go on with the show during the Covid-19 pandemic, with fifty-two stores in attendance. CAN author and CAN Board Treasurer Karen Whiting represented the Christian Authors Network at their booth and gave retailers gift bags filled with bookmarks to give out to their customers. CAN also held a drawing for Dragon Raid and Moon Raid, a guided family game set from CAN member and fantasy author James R. Hannibal. Tim Wegner of JOY Bookstore, Schaefferstown, PA won the set. At the author meet- and-greet, CAN members Michelle Lazurek and Karen Whiting spoke, offering encouragement and sharing information with authors. Michelle Lazurek, and CAN Author/Board Member Karen Whiting recognized the bookstore winners of $950 in CAN author books: Charlene Wiggs from bookstore On The Third Day, Pottstown PA, Karen Doerflin from book store Inner Blessings in Cincinnati Ohio, and Joan Cloud from the bookstore, Gospel Shop, in Princess Anne, Maryland. The books were divided among the three winners.
The CPE winter show is set for February 14-16, 2021 and is already generating interest. According to Christy Dollins, The Munce Group, “The Winter show is moving to North Carolina this year, bringing a new opportunity for more stores in this area to attend that have never before attended a CPE show.”
The Christian Authors Network is comprised of a large network of traditionally published authors who work together to grow the industry, their careers, and Christ. Learn more about the Christian Authors Network at http://ChristianAuthorsNetwork.com.
