June 26-27: Writers’ League of Texas Agents & Editors Conference


Next week I’m taking part in the Writers’ League of Texas Agents & Editors Conference in Austin. The Writers’ League is a great organization and the conference is an equally great event. Here’s my schedule:

Friday, June 26:

Genre Meet-up
Mystery/ Thriller — Meg Gardiner and Scott Montgomery
Genre meet-ups at the start of the conference give attendees who are writing in the same genre or category a chance “to share ideas, ask questions, talk about the market, and — more than anything — network and make some new writer friends.” The meeting will be facilitated by me and mystery bookseller extraordinaire Scott Montgomery, from Austin’s independent bookstore Book People.

Saturday, June 27:

Keynote Luncheon Speech
A Writer’s Journey: Forging a Path with Passion, Craft, and Persistence

Panel: “Edge-of-Your-Seat Fiction: Creating Thrillers & Mysteries”
Panelists Meg Gardiner, debut novelist Alexandra Burt, agents Noah Ballard and Will Roberts, moderated by Scott Montgomery.

If any of you can make it to the conference, fantastic. But, since most of you won’t be in Austin next weekend, I’ll be talking about all of these topics on the blog over the next couple of months.
