It's official. I am signed up to attend my first professional writer's conference - April 23-24, 2010. As a part of this I will be giving a one on one pitch of my new book Lackawanna Prophecies - CHOSEN, to Nephele Tempest, from the The Knight Agency (this is not an LDS Agency). I had hoped to pitch to Lauran Rennert with Andrea Brown Literary Agency but her pitch session was sold out by the time I found out about this conference. I've had her on my agency watch list for over a year now. At least I will still get to meet her and introduce myself.
I will be attending several lectures, workshops and of course my chance to pitch my book. It's hard to describe how excited I am for this, but the biggest thing is just an opportunity to network with other authors and publishers. All attendees can also participate in a First Chapter contest for unpublished works for several genres. So... it's time to hit the keyboard and to let the creative juices flow - I've got another deadline and a goal.
