This past weekend, basically one day after returning from Paris, I joined my crit buddies on a road trip to Texas for the DFW Writers’ Conference.
— Colleen Lindsay explaining high concept (& saying yay or nay to the audience examples — very helpful)
— Rusty Shelton sharing tips on building our digital platform
— Kristen Lamb giving us a wakeup call about blogging your brand.
— Meeting Jim McCarthy of Dystel and Goderich. I’d heard from Jessica Spotswood, Saundra Mitchell, and Carrie Ryan how wonderful he is, and I must agree that he is a total charmer. I just wish I could find his theater blog because I want to follow it!
— Meeting other YA authors — so many cool people!
Now, looking ahead . . .
Coming up this week on the blog: recap of my girly trip to Paris. There will be TEA and FRENCH SOLDIERS, plus much more.
Next week on the blog: a giveaway of my only remaining ARC for The Revenant + other amazing books and fantastic swag.
