cj Sez: Daylight Saving Time is here.
Did you remember to Spring Forward one hour? I did then forgot to actually do it.
|SRO in "Children's Books..."
The Haunted Book Shop had a pop-up book store presence where attendees could buy books by local authors and have them autographed on the spot. Guess who didn’t get her books there. Sigh. Family life kind of interfered. Authors needed to get them to the library by Friday before the conference, but I was left without access to my vehicle to transport them on Friday.
On the plus side, I did get to sit in on the “Pantster v. Plotter: The Great Debate” workshop. I was interested in the in-depth descriptions and analyses by the writers of both processes, but I think I’m still a pathfinder.
The Mobile Writers Guild “Pitch War” panel (authors, editors, agent) critiqued twenty-nine pitches. I’m thinking the MWG needs to offer a hands-on/practice workshop on what agents expect to see.
All of that in one day, and it was free! The Festival was sponsored by the Mobile Writers Guild, the Mobile Public Library, and The Haunted Book Shop. Thank you and sa-lute. (Psst: I heard there are already plans in the works for next year.)
I’m happy to repost the gorgeous cover of the Mobile Writers Guild upcoming anthology, CLASSICS RETOLD PIECES, in which I have retold two Agatha Christie short mysteries.
Stay tuned for contributor spotlights and a release date, coming soon.
That’s it for today’s post. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same. Raising prayers for your health and safety.
No inflation here: THE DAWGSTAR and DEATH ON THE YAMPAmy fast-paced, exciting suspense/thriller ebooks, are low-, low-priced at $2.99.
