For the past 3 years, I’ve attended the Muse online writer’s conference. Tons of information and tons of writerly camaraderie. There are also multiple publishers who attend and — besides teaching classes and answering questions — accept pitches during the conference.
After carefully researching all publishers attending the 2010 conference, I may have to prepare a few pitches myself.
But… only after I finish the novels.
I’ve completed Chapter Four edit and polish for my current WIP, “The Shadow’s Song.” I was inspired by a kestrel that landed in my backyard yesterday. One of the main character’s name is Kestrel, so I took it for a sign to start editing again. I have tweaked my work schedule to allow more time for fiction writing, and I intend to make use of it. I have two other novels that I could finish by October… IF I work really hard between now and then.
