Jambalaya Writers Conference 2017

One of the things that has been instrumental in my writer’s journey has been attending writers’ conferences. There is no faster, easier—and more fun—way to gain access to the publishing world.

How I Got My Book Deal and Agent

I know every new author has one of these blog posts, and I think they all say roughly the same three things: Knowledge: I fumbled around online, read blogs, and went to conferences. Timing: I talked to the right agent at the right time at the right conference or submitted to the right contest. Perseverance: […]
