Here is a Wonderful piece done by Book Country Blog about Literary Agent Mary C. Moore. Mary is on the short list of agents I have researched and plan on querying once I finish my edits.

Collaborations That Count: Working with an Editor – PubSense Summit™ PubSense Summit™.

I am seriously considering attending this conference. The only hiccup is that I have already made plans to attend the ConCarolinas SciFi convention in May. Alas, I only have so many babysitting favors to call in and only so much money to spend on these endeavors. Yet I still find myself drooling over another learning opportunity of this caliber, especially when it’s in my own town. Maybe I’ll see if they offer scholarships. Hey, ya never know. I may just see you there.

 

 

 

Live from the SCWW Conference

Okay, so I finally made it to my hotel late last night and after a quick trip to the bar to settle my nerves I got a good nights sleep. I cannot tell everyone how excited I am to be attending an actual conference after the past few years of attempts to go and having things fall through.

I have already hung out with a lovely publisher at breakfast, and attending my first class. I think I’ve succeeded in the Business Causal outfit, and I have all my business cards ready to hand out at the first request. I am currently between sessions and just wanted to give a quick update.

Everyone here has be super nice and welcoming. I will say that it is mostly “mature” people but I’m not judging. I’ll talk to anyone who will listen. I have realized the toughest part is choosing which session you will attend and which ones you’ll have to skip. Ugh! I want to go to them all.

I’ll post more tonight with actual helpful info. But here’s my outfit to tide you over till then.
