Backspace Conference

I'm getting ready to head down to the Backspace Conference tomorrow to meet some of the on-line writers that I've been talking to for the past year or so and I'm incredibly excited!
I'm also doing a two minutes - two pages session with a couple agents. Frankly, I'm nervous. Speaking in front of a group always makes me nervous. Just hoping I'll pull it off without looking like a total idiot - LOL.

I'm having dinner with a publisher that I've been talking to for over a year. Maybe something will come of it - but maybe it's just a dinner to finally meet in person. Who knows.
It's a tough business, tougher than the securities industry but I'm up for the challenge. I'm feeling the Irish luck smiling down on me - and it's still May - the month I seem to have incredible luck. Perhaps this will be my year.

Thanks for swinging by! Have a wonderful weekend all!

Sharon - it went well - it was wonderful to meet her in person and we talked for a little over two hours. She took the first four chapters of Mirror Lake and still has interest - but her schedule is packed right now. That won't stop me from still getting it out there with Agents and such. It was really great to meet you as well!
