Don’t forget to enter my Commonplace Book Giveaway by Friday, 6:00 PM CST.
Some of you know that last year I won first place for a novel excerpt at a local writing conference. At the same conference I happened to be critiqued by the editor of Louisiana Literature magazine, who offered to publish a portion of my manuscript on the spot. I left the conference feeling incredible. Things were finally happening! To me!
I’ve been asked to speak at the conference this year, right before the new winner is announced. It’s supposed to be a ten to fifteen overview of my year. Thanks, Jambalaya Writers’ Conference, for helping to bolster the query that ultimately led to my agent. And thanks for giving me a moment to share a little of my story with other writers.
