Fantasy Fiction Tour Report: Day 1

Well, the Fantasy Fiction Tour is off to a, uhm…well, a rather dubious start. I'm waiting in a line at BWI Airport when my cell phone rings. It's author Christopher Hopper. "Wayne, it looks like we're going to have another Tour vehicle."

"What?" I'm stupefied (not unusual, btw).

CH explains, "My flight got bumped. I have to drive to Atlanta."

"WHAT??" I'm stunned. Immediately, I'm thinking, I can't believe the enemy got to us this fast! "You have to drive from Buffalo, NY to Atlanta? What time will you be getting in?"

"4 a.m."

So, please pray for safe travel through the night for Christopher and his wife.

And then there was a little lost luggage incident for me. And if not for divine intervention, I would have been doing my first booksigning tomorrow--wearing shorts!

This picture is pretty much my view out of the window where I'm staying with my agent Gregg Wooding. God is good.

Much more tomorrow. We have the Official Fantasy Fiction Tour Kick-off Event at 11am. I'll be donning my cape, shield, new broadsword, and backhanger sword all for the first time.

Yeah, I could definitely see that the enemy is starting early. What with Christopher's flight being bumped, Sharon's sore throat, your lost luggage - he's trying hard.

But he WILL NOT win! Our God is greater than he who is in the world, and God will triumph during this tour.

I'm praying for you guys!

We WILL overcome the enemy!
Bad luck comes in threes, so it looks like you got rid of bad luck early!

Will be praying! and hope the kick off goes well!!!

Ah, the Enemy may be moving but I have learned from experience that if God has allowed it, He is up to something. And I love Him for that! I am praying right now for Sharon's throat, and Christopher and his wife and that long drive. Bless them right now Lord with Your mercy and strength. To see what I asked Him earlier, you can check my blog.

Oh, and m'lord, that is far far too cool about your rescued luggage.
