O’Fallon, IL— Christian Authors Network authors will network with booksellers and managers from the Association of Logos Bookstores in two events preceding ICRS 2015 in Orlando, Florida on Friday, June 26th. The events include an author meet-and-greet and a devotional author panel. 

Becky Gorczyca, executive director of the Association of Logos Bookstores comments, “It is always a pleasure working with the talented and enthusiastic CAN authors, and we look forward to the lively discussions between them and the Logos buyers.” 

CAN authors look forward to mingling with Logos retailers, sharing new release information and ways CAN will support retailers again this year. 

Most of the authors attending will be signing new releases (since ICRS 2014) including Dianne Barker(Cabbages and Kings), Twila Belk (Raindrops from Heaven), Katrina Cassel (Promises for God’ s Princesses)Doreen Hanna (Raising a Young Modern Day Princess), Becky Harling (30 Days Praise Challenge for Parents), Diane Stortz (Words to Dream On: Bedtime Bible Stories and Prayers)and Karen Whiting (The One Year Devotions for Active Boys). 

Also in attendance will be authors Janet Perez Eckles, Eddie Jones (signing The Caden Chronicles series), Carol McAdams Moore (Dare U 2 Open This Book and Just Sayin’), and Cynthia Ruchti.

In additional Logos Bookseller events, Twila Belk will speak on ministering to customers, Eddie Jones will speak on a panel of YA authors, and fiction author Cynthia Ruchti will speak at an association dinner. 

The devotional author panel will focus on tips for matching customers with devotionals that best meet their needs. Each Logos Bookseller will receive a handout, created by the CAN authors, that identifies target readers of the devotionals, as well as benefits for those readers. 

“The Christian Authors Network strives to support retailers ministering to their customers as the church in their local community. Together, locally and nationally, we can be the hands and hearts of the Church for people searching for the right resource.” – Angela Breidenbach, Christian Authors Network president
