Conference Season


            The summer is when a writer’s (at least this one’s) fancy turns towards conferences. There are a lot of good conferences during the summer and fall that I itch to attend. But because my resources are limited, I have to choose carefully those conferences which I believe will do me the most good for my not-yet-budding career as a writer. I’m looking for conferences about craft, not conventions about fandom. I want to meet publishing professionals and fellow authors. I want to attend a conference dedicated to the genre(s) I write.
            It doesn’t take long for one conference name to swim to the top: Crimebake.
            Now, I wonder which agents are going to be there. Time to start researching them and their authors.

Are you planning on pitching a new book?

If I can manage to get the revisions done, yes. My summer has filled up with teaching, but I hope to catch my stride in the next week to really get some work done on it.
