LDStorymakers Midwest Writers Conference and Shelfie Update

What a weekend! I attended the Midwest LDStorymakers conference in Overland Park, Ks and my head never stopped whirling the entire time.

First, I met one leg of the tripod that started out four years ago as three wannabe writers, the skilled and totally sweet Charity Bradford. One of these days, we're gonna show up at Marcy Hatch's doorstep and make the team complete.

Our keynote speaker was the hilarious and rather amazing Adam Glendon Sidwell, author of the Evertaster series. Doesn't that cover entice you to buy?

Btw, Google his name and see where it leads you. ( that Tom Hiddleston on Thor?! Maybe it's a slim connection but like I care. *pant,pant*)

I can't begin to thank all the presenters and staff. Great workshops on marketing, queries, and Voice, TMI for my still-whirling brain.

They presented me with second and third place in the First Chapter contest, The Adamant and Of Oak and Dragons, respectively, a most humbling experience. Thank you. Sarah Negovetich of the Corvisiero Literary Agency critiqued my query for Diamond Black, and no, I never figured out how to pronounce her name.
