Nationals and stuff
I'm back! Had a blast at Nationals and wish I could have posted during the week, but I'm cheap and refused to fork out the $10 a day to use the internet. If you want to read a whole blow by blow of my week you can go to: http://www.mwvrwa.blogspot.com/
This is a photo of me at the Literacy Signing at Nationals. Next to me is WRP author Helen Hardt. Who I hung out with a lot and had a wonderful time getting to know.
Here are the high spots of my trip. I met some wonderful new friends and reconnected with some old ones. I had a request for the new western series from an agent and a full of the contemporary from an editor. I learned what other agents are looking for westerns and I will be using Fridays to spotlight the five things various agents talked about at a large agent panel I attended. So stay tuned for that if you are a writer!
It was fun to talk with fellow Wild Rose Press authors and I met some of the editors as well.
Now that I'm back I have the edits I received from my editor for Miner to get done and to write up cover letters to send out with the requested material.
What did you do last week? I feel like I've been on another planet. I can't believe there are so many people in one place as I witnessed in the Union Square in San Francisco! I now know I would never make it in a large city. I didn't like the crush of people, the noise, or the uncaring attitude.
It's good to be home!
