2016: Day 193 or Annual Pre-Conference Mixer
YAY! One of my favorite things about getting ready for conference is Laurie Tomlinson’s Pre-Conference Mixer! And it’s totally that time of year again! Want to play? Check out the end of the post.
Here are my answers!
Name: Carol Moncado
Location: SW Missouri
What you write/tagline/trademark: Romantic Dramedy in the Ozarks…and Elsewhere (yeah, it used to be and the Alps, but then I ended up with more places ;))
Place in the book world: Indie. Newly-minted USA Today Bestselling Author – thanks to the WHISPERS OF LOVE boxed set! It’s currently #79 on the USAT list :D. I have nine novels out, am in/have been in four boxed sets with novellas/short novels (two are out as singles with the other two coming out this month) plus one other novella. I have 2-4 novels likely coming out this year and at least two more (new) novellas. Right now, I’m loving my royalty niche ;). You can find all of them on Amazon.
On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: I’m just gonna leave Laurie’s answer ;). All the hugs.
The unique talking points that will get you going for hours: Books, more books, even more books. Indie publishing. My kids. Friends (the tv show, not the people – but the people too). LOST. NCIS (Ziva? Not dead.). Royalty stuff (it’s all research. promise.).
Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My amazing husband and four kids. I (will) have a freshman, 7th grader, 6th grader, and 4th grader (only boy!). Plus the 5lb Shorkie who is a total mama’s boy.
Conference goals we can pray for? That I can be a blessing and encouragement to others. To be in the right places at the right times.
Anything we can celebrate with you? See the note about the USA Today thing?!
One or two ways we can help you build your platform? You can “follow” my profile on Facebook (unless we actually know each other – then send a FR 😉 – but I don’t use my “author PAGE” anymore because FB has made it impossible for people to see things unless you pay them) and sign up for my newsletter (there’s cover reveals and preorder discounts and even free novellas occasionally)!
YAY! Can’t wait to see y’all! ETA: Find me! I’ll have chocolate chip cookies to share!
Here’s how to play:
– Copy/paste the questions and fill out your own answers in a post on your own website and paste the URL to that specific post (not your homepage) using the handy link-up tool on Laurie’s page. Just click on the button below that says “Add your link”. If you don’t have a website, feel free to answer the questions in the comments below! (And share it in my comments below!)
– Make sure to link back to this post after you fill out your answers so any of your readers who are conference attendees can participate, too! The more, the merrier.

We met at last year’s conference and I can’t wait to run into you again! Blessings 🙂
Hi, Teresa! Be sure you do! I’ll have cookies!
Reading all your books and their release timeline exhausts me! You. Are. WONDER WOMAN!!!! I can’t wait to meet you in person! 😀
Back atcha!!!! And well, I got sidetracked this year and am trying desperately to get back ON track ;). We’ll see how it goes… 😀
What exactly is a shorkie? Also, you forgot to mention the cookies…
AH! I did forget the cookies! I will have cookies!
Shorkie – Shih Tzu Yorkie mix ;).
Hi Carol! I read your Mr. Write books a while back. Need to go back and see if I reviewed them 🙂
AH! I hope you liked them! FINDING was based (clearly!) on an ACFW conference! So much fun to write!!! 😀 I should reread them soon… it’s on my to do list ;).
I’m a tiny dog mama too, Indie author, and a Friends freak. Hope to get to meet you!
I love my little doggy. He snuggles far better than my kids do these days ;). I’ll be on the lookout for you!!!
Right there with ya!
Congratulations, you USA Today Bestselling author!! Woohoo!! Your puppy is adorable!! I now have a freshman in high school, too! Waaah!! Can’t wait to see you!
Thanks, Jill! I’m not sure how i’m doing with this whole freshman thing ;0. But she’ll have been in school almost two weeks by the time i leave ;). Big hug with your name on it friend!
