James River Writers Conference
I will attend this on October 14 and 15. While there, I will meet NY Times bestselling author, David Baldacci. Also in attendance will be Margot Lee Shetterly, author of Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race. The best news is that it's held in downtown Richmond, which is only a forty-minute drive from my home. Traffic might increase that time, of course.
I have also registered to speak to an agent (a whole seven minutes!) about my book. I'll make a pitch and see if she wants to read more. (I chose three who are interested in my genre, and all three happen to be women. I was given my first choice.) I am very excited about this. Not only will I learn a great deal, but I will be able to do some networking as well.
