CPE 2019 – Susan Neal

Sharon Wilharm and Susan Neal at CPE 2019

Author Susan Neal and I connected with AWSA right after I first joined. She was looking for reviews of her new book and found out I did book reviews. I read her Healthy Living Series: 3 Books in 1 and loved it. She's authentic and real. She talks about the struggle of wanting to eat…

CPE 2019 – Linda Goldfarb

Sharon Wilharm interviews author Linda Goldfarb at CPE 2019

Industry events are so often divine connections. Such is the case with Linda Goldfarb. She's a friend of a friend, actually, a friend of several friends, and we were introduced at the Christian Product Expo because they wanted to make sure I got to know her and interviewed her. After our initial small talk, she…

That's what happened when I lined up Pamela Christian to interview at Christian Product Expo.  I first picked Pamela to interview because I saw she…

CPE 2019 – Michelle Medlock Adams and Bethany Jett

We've been to many industry events, but never one where the energy level matched what we encountered at this year's Christian Product Expo. Authors were excited about their books and eager to share about them. None, however, were quite as excited as co-authors Michelle Medlock Adams and Bethany Jett when they saw for the first…

Christian Product Expo 2019

For years I've heard about the amazing Christian Product Expo in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, only it wasn't open to media, so we couldn't attend. Then, this year I got an email from Lori Heiselman, founder of Biscuit Media Group, inviting us to be part of the media coverage of this year's CPE. I'm so glad she…
