Florida Writers Conference; This Weekend! Be There!

Yeah, okay, so it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted here. It seems it has been all I can do just to catch my breath. BJ has been out of town with Brittany while Brittany is acting in the film Colors of Emily (That’s a link to the Facebook page, btw, so go like it! It’s also on IMDB, so check it out here), so I’ve been “single parenting” at home with Brett. We’ve had a lot of frozen pizzas!

So anyway, starting today, in the Lake Mary area of Orlando, will be the Florida Writers Conference. It officially kicks off this evening with the opening ceremonies, but the big days are tomorrow and Saturday. There are also activities on SunFloWritConfday, but it’s an abbreviated day so everyone can get home. There will be a ton of fantastic speakers/presenters/faculty covering just about every topic/genre/medium a writer could hope for. Not only that, it’s a great opportunity to network with other writers. If you’ve already registered, see you there. If you haven’t, it’s not too late—just show up and bring your notepad…er laptop.

In other news, I don’t have much. I’ve pitched Cat & Mouse to a publisher, one that I really like, but it may not be the right fit/right time. I’m hoping to hear back in the next week or so.

Same with Beah—I’ve pitched it, but I haven’t had any sort of response –are we getting spoiled to our communication technology where we can tell if someone has seen our message or read our post? I think we are!

I’m working to finish the Citizens pitch and send it to the same person who first said no to Beah because they mentioned they’d be interested in seeing more. Joe’s work is so unique, it’s bound to find a home in someone’s publishing schedule.

That’s all for this week. Come see me—and a host of other writers, editors and agents at the Florida Writers Conference!

  2. You seem to have a great time and the writing conferences. Congrats to Brittany! She’s really doing it. So awesome. I am going to go to a conference one day. I just got hired for a new job that starts on Monday, so I can’t get off anytime soon. But, I will accumulate vacation and will go on a conference then. Get up the great work yourself!
