Right now, as you comfily read this post on your snuggly couch, I am in a whirlwind of authors, aspiring authors and readers as well as people who just love to learn.
This is my first writers conference ever that I will be a panelist in. Am I scared? Yes. Standing in front of dozens of people makes me feel weak as water! Okay, I know water can be very strong, but I am not there yet!
I am also doing a reading out of Darkspell! I've been reading books out loud for fifteen years--because I'm a mom, and I have read out loud at book readings to very small groups. I've read to a large group a picture book at an elementary school using silly voices, but maybe only four people will show up to my reading here. What do you think? I think a tip is keeping in mind my audience. LOL. We'll see how it goes.
So, where is this writers conference you ask? It's LTUE! I attended this conference when I was only aspiring to be an author a few years ago. Interesting how now it's reversed!
The next wind will sweep me away to my first book signing at the Gateway Barnes & Noble Saturday the 11th! A dear friend of mine was thoughtful enough to invite me as one of the several authors attending. I am so thrilled. Am I scared? Not really. I find presenting the worstest of scaries. But with a powerpoint, the universe is mine.
What is your scary exciting moment?
coming up: how my weekend at the conference and book signing went! Aaa!
