Writer’s Digest Conference

Writers-Digest-Conference 2Writer’s Digest Conference WEST – October 19-21, 2012

Writer’s Digest Conference West will be held in Hollywood, California this year at the Loews Hollywood Hotel on October 19th – October 21st.  I am honored to be part of the panel on Self-Publishing in the Real World – What to Expect, What to Do, and How to Do It.

The reason we have been asked to become part of the Writer’s Digest Conference West is because Saltwater Taffy, a self-published title, has sold through our first printing of 5000 copies while picking up multiple children’s book award honors.  Endorsed by 12 Teachers of the Year around the country, Saltwater Taffy is an epic adventure novel for tweens and children of all ages.

Here’s a peek at the schedule for the weekend!  Hope to see you there and always remember, your next great idea is right behind the runaway thought of, “I don’t know what to write.”
