In King of Prussia, Ready for the Catholic Writers Guild Conference

I'm in Valley Forge~King of Prussia, Pennsylvania at the Valley Forge Convention Center and hotel complex near the King of Prussia Mall. (I don't know where the border is between VF and KoP!) The Catholic Writers Conference Live (CWCL) starts tomorrow morning!

BTW: How King of Prussia got its name, according to Wikipedia: "The community took its name in the 18th century from a local tavern named the King of Prussia Inn, which was named after Frederick II, King of Prussia."

I'll be posting updates on the conference here and also on the Catholic Writers Guild blog. The theme of the CWCL this year is MARKETING and there are several presentations on marketing, including mine. The Catholic Marketing Network Trade Show (CMNTS) is set up in the lower level of the Scanticon Hotel and our Conference sessions take place in different meeting rooms on the main floor of that hotel. The CMNTS hosts events in the evening in the Radisson Grand Ballroom--tonight there is a showing of a new movie on St. Philip Neri, Blessed John Henry Newman's patron! They also offer Mass and Eucharistic Adoration, and I'm sure with all the priests in attendance there might be opportunities for Confession. Catholics have invaded this little part of PA!

I met Theresa Thomas (Every Day Catholic) and Christine Gorth (Divine Mercy Publications) and two other ladies coming to the conference and the trade show on the shuttle from the airport to the hotel. My flights from Wichita to Philadelphia, through Houston (?) were smooth. I was upgraded to First Class on the Houston to Philly flight!
