What Led Me to ACFW

What Led Me to ACFW

When I started writing, people advised me to join a writers’ group. I thought why get together with writers and talk about writing, when I can just write. After two years of going it alone, I’d gotten 102 rejections and one POD book published. When the book released, I learned what Print On Demand publishing […]

Conference Follow Through

Did an agent or an editor request a query, proposal, or—be still my heart—your full manuscript at the conference you attended recently? Did you send what they requested? The second question may sound odd. But I hear the stats once: 7 out of 10 writers who received requests at conferences don’t follow through.  Why? Beats […]

My Conference List

This is for the newbies attending their first ACFW conference in less than a month. I’ve compiled a list of things to take, things to remember, and things to calm nerves. Things to take to conference:      1.     One Sheet: On as many finished projects as you have.      2.     Proposal: The editor or agent may never […]
