Spring Fling by Margot Justes

I did not blog last week, instead I attended the Chicago North RWA (Romance Writers of America) Spring Fling, our bi-annual conference, held right here in neighboring Deerfield, IL.

And what a conference it was-our key note speakers were Debbie Macomber and Eloisa James, two best selling and very gracious authors. The panels were informative and very well attended; as was the open to the public book signing.

The pitches were flowing, since some very well known editors and agents were there to hear them.

The conferences, regional or national are very important tools for authors, whether for networking, learning or participating on panels, it is a way for us to get our names out there.

It is not enough to write and get published, we must sell the product, and we are the product that we must sell.

Till next Saturday,
