Attending a Writer's Conference This Weekend

October 16, 2014

Dear Constant Readers,

I am attending the James River Writers Conference in Richmond, Virginia beginning tomorrow.  This is the second year that I have attended this conference and am very excited to be going again.

I ask that you send some good thoughts my way on Saturday morning around 9:30 a.m.  This is the time of my one-on-one with a well-known literary agent.  I am going to pitch her my book on growing up in Kingsport.  If she likes the concept and is willing to take me on as a client, then she will represent me to publishers for a book deal.  So, I could use all the prayers and good vibes I can get.

Just so you know, I will probably be taking the next week off of active blogging, but will resume the week of Oct. 27.  You can expect one post from me next week which will announce the winners of my Kindle and Amazon Gift Card contests.  Thanks to all who participated.  It was very helpful.  I hope that those of you who have subscribed to receive my blog posts via email are enjoying them.

I really appreciate all the feedback you have been giving me on my recent posts.  Your comments mean a great deal to me and are truly helpful.

Here's to wishing and hoping!
