I will be participating in the multi-author book signing. Details to come.
Join Romance Writers of America in New York City, July 18–21, for the 2018 RWA Conference at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel.
The RWA Conference is the place where career-focused romance writers meet, mingle, and get down to the business of being an author. When 2,000 romance writers and industry professionals assemble in one place, the sense of community is undeniable.
At the conference, career-focused romance writers can anticipate:
Education and information,
Networking with fellow writers,
Interaction with editors, agents, publishers, booksellers, and other romance publishing industry professionals.
#RT18 is next week! Here’s where you can find me. I hope you stop by and say hello!
Panic Free Pitching
Pitching your novel is a daunting task. For the unpublished writer, the thought of sitting across from an editor or agent and convincing her/him to read your book is intimidating. Even multi-published authors often break a sweat thinking about pitching a new project. This interactive workshop will cover the basics of writing a successful pitch and offer tips on keeping your cool during your appointment. But pitching doesn’t stop once you’ve acquired an editor or agent. Boiling you book down to its hook is an important skill. Future proposals, ads, and cover copy are just three uses of a good pitch.
