Over the last couple of days I've read blogs from some amazing authors about the upcoming Colorado Gold Conference. Read them for yourself at
They all have great advice for anyone attending the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold Conference. To me, a conference is about the chance to be with other writers. I spend much of my life around people who understand nothing about what it means and/or takes to be a working writer. Hell, most of my family haven't read my first book, and I gave them FREE copies. When I complain about another rejection, or how hard it is to write when the dreaded writers block is lurking around the corner, no one understands my pain. Except for those who experience the same highs and lows known only to those in the profession.
So this upcoming weekend, if I happen upon you at the conference, let's grab a drink and talk writing. Tell me your woes. Tell me your conference yippees. For I love every minute of it.
Oh, and one more thing, a year ago today I was an author without a book deal, and thanks to the Colorado Gold last year, CURSES! A F**ked-Up Fairytale will be released from Kensington Books on March 1, 2012.
What about you? Who do you talk writing with? Any advice for this weekend?
