Writerly Wednesday ~~ Check out this GREAT conference!

Hello writer friends. I'm a day late posting, so let's just pretend today is Wednesday, k? But the good news about my tardiness is that I've been doing some interview work, and you'll soon see some great posts because of it!

You've "heard" me speak of friend Deborah Leblanc before. She's got some awesome books out if you love the paranormal, suspense, spooky genre. And they're all set in our beloved state of Louisiana. Yay. Anywho, this awesome woman has put together her second Pen to Press writers' conference coming up NEXT MONTH. There are NYT best selling authors, top agents and editors, and teachers extraordinaire on hand to guide aspiring authors. I can't tell you how much I got from attending P-2-P #1. Click on the site and listen to Deb and past attendees tell you what's in store.

You really need to check it out and seriously consider attending. Think about investing in your writing career if your goal is to publish a book. 

Here's the scoopage~~~

Time Is Running Out!

You still have time to register for the 2010 Pen to Press Writers Retreat,but not for long!

Go to [this link] now to register and reserve your spot at the Pen to Press Writers' Retreat in New Orleans, La.!


Pen to Press Retreats are five intense, hands-on, inspiring days that teach participants how to shape and present a saleable manuscript. You'll learn in a variety of settings, from workshops to one-on-one mentoring sessions to seminars. To that end, you will write and revise, have your manuscript critiqued, and revise some more. This is a remarkable opportunity to transform your writing!

To top it off, throughout the last two days of each retreat, Pen to Press participants are given exclusive, one-on-one time with agents and editors to whom they can pitch their work!


Our 2010 Retreat will be held at the historic Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans on May 25th through May 30th. Located in the heart of the French Quarter, the Hotel Monteleone is a hotel that combines a legendary history of hospitality with a vibrant contemporary flair. It is one of only two hotels in the United States that has been designated a literary landmark.

I'm on my way to check it out now. Yesterday, I thought it was Wednesday all day, so maybe there's something in the spring air throwing us off? Good to see you're posting again!
