It’s been a big week for me. I got back from a trip just in time to attend the writers conference sponsored by the Alaska Writers Guild and SCBWI-Alaska. I heard great speakers, hung out with fellow writers, and made a few new writing friends. And the best part is, Lisa Cron’s talk on what readers crave supplied just what I needed to hear at this stage in my writing. (See more on Lisa and her book Wired for Story at http://wiredforstory.com.)
While the conference was going on, I got an email from my editor and we wrote back and forth a bit on where we are in the publishing process with Fools Gold. Good news: our release date is December 4! If you’d like to be on my email newsletter list to hear more as we get closer, please comment here with your email address or write me at [email protected].
And I just got notes from my editor, so I’m starting on revisions to get Fools Gold ready for publication. I know it will take some time and maybe a few passes through to get everything done, but it’s also thrilling to have this chance to work with a professional editor and publisher.
So things are busy. But I couldn’t be happier. I love this writing life. Thanks for following along on my journey.
P.S. I’m blogging on AKRWA’s blog today about autumn in Alaska and which season is the best for writing. See more at http://www.akrwa.blogspot.com.
