Spring Fling Recap
For the last two days I've been attending our Chapter's bi-annual Spring Fling Conference. Each year the committee seems to outdo themselves, and this year was no exception. I think this year's event was the best ever.
It was fablulous to mingle and meet fellow authors, agents, and editors. I got to hang with my fellow Wild Rose Press authors and the Acme Babes! I strengthened friendships forged at monthly chapter meetings as we had more time to sit, chat, and enjoy meals together.
The workshops provided a wealth of information, tools, strategies, and tips which I will attempt to assimilate over the coming days. My brain is still spinning.
I pitched a mss to Megan Long of Harlequin Superromance, who was gracious enough to offer advice and suggest I 'drop her name' and send it along to the American Line, for which it seemed better suited.
On the downside, I had the bookseller order way too many of my books for the book signing and I can home with a loaded credit card and a box full of my own books. Oh well. What can you do?
All in all, I'd say it was a fabulous weekend, and the only bad part, is tomorrow I have to return to the 'real' world and can't bask in my author persona all day long.
Until next time,
