My gift to me
That said, I thought making a conference plan for 2015 would help.
I've had my eye on the Mystery Writers of America Florida Chapter's Sleuthfest conference ( www.sleuthfest.com ). I've never been to this conference. It seem to me that February 26 through March 1 would be a great time, weather-wise, to be in Deerfield Beach, FL—that's just north of Fort Lauderdale.
In addition to the chance to meet and pitch your novel to an agent and the opportunity for a 10-page manuscript critique by an agent or editor, the keynote speaker this year is James Patterson. Sounds almost too good to pass up, I say.
Maybe I can call it my gift to me. My Christmas and birthday presents all rolled up into one marvelous gift.
Maybe . . . if the stars align just right . . . just maybe.
On the chance that you go and I don't, please be sure to let me know what a good time I missed. I'll feel really sad, but that's okay. I still would like to know.
You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I'll try to do the same.
PS: The toon is from Facebook.
