Are you attending the awesome, two day, FREE WriteOnCon? I am.
Register here if you haven't already.
This is my first year participating and I think my CP's are all breathing a sigh of relief that I'm bothering somebody else with all my new query versions and reworking my 1st page for the 4,364th time. I even entered Gennifer Albin's 1st 100 words crit. contest. I only have a 1 in 10 chance of being picked but still I'm all giddy with excitement. My first 5 pages-they're way better (if I do say so myself) and I've read so many queries for books I WANT to read.
Tomorrow and Wednesday all the big stuff happens. Here's is rundown of where I'll be tomorrow. I'm trying to suck it up and deal with the times being EDT. But sorry guys, I'm not getting up at 3am for the Keynote Address.
(9am-Interview with agent Daniel Lazar -if I can wake up)
10 am (my 7): Live pitching event with agent Peter Knapp. I'm submitting my query for it. Random org is picking all the 30, so I'm not that hopeful.
12:30 pm Middle Grade Rules
1:00 pm Hooks and Killer First Lines with Lissa Price
2:00 pm Author/Agent Relationship Denise Jaden and Michelle Humphrey
3:00 pm MARISSA MEYER!!!!
3:30 Voice with Jennifer Nielsen
9:00 pm Live Panel of Professionals-Mollie Glick, Cheryl Pientka, Emily Keyes, and Sarah Barley
After typing this up I realized I'm planning on attending everything MG and YA that isn't crazy early, so I won't do this write up for Wednesday. But here's the link to the full schedule.
Let me know if you're attending and I'll read your stuff.
WriteOnCon has been incredible and the "Events" haven't even started yet.
