It's That Time Again!

Happy Tuesday All,

There is less than 62 days until the NWHRWA's annual Lone Star Conference. In the margins of this blog you'll see a little ticker with a black cat (in honor of one of my characters in a manuscript I'm in the process of writing) telling how long until the Conference and if you click on some of the words below it, they'll take you to the NWHRWA's Conference site.

Some of you might remember how I went on and on about Todd Stone last year. This year, it's 3 agents and Randy Ingermanson of the Snow Flake Method.  Christine Whitthohn from Book Cents Literary Agency is scheduled to speak during lunch. Then, if that wasn't enough to whet your appetite for a writers' conference, there's 2 other agents as well:  Naomi Hackenberg from Elaine P. English, PLLC and Amy Boggs from Donald Maas Literary Agency.

Last year was an incredible experience...with book signings and all kinds of things. I don't know everything that's planned, yet, but it sounds like there will be some book signings this year, too.

If this wasn't enough excitement, I'm in intensive editing. I'm on another round of edits with Surreal and determined to finish in about 10-20 days. I've got about 150 or so pages to go. So, I'm polishing up, trying to get some feedback and get it all prepped just in case it's ready for me by the time of the Conference. I'm not signed up for an appointment with an agent, but, it never hurts to be prepared.

Anyway...who's signing up for the Conference? Come on, you know you know you wanna come...it's just one day...you can make it :-)

Have A Tip-Top Tuesday!
