My WriteOnCon Favorites So Far...

Such a great week with WriteOnCon! The chats have been phenomenal. The feedback in the forums has been priceless. But what I really want to talk about are the author presentations.

Mindbendingly brilliant.

Like this vlog about FAILURE by author Beth Revis of Across the Universe.

Or this post on RESPECTING your readers and the craft by author Kiersten White of the Paranormalcy trilogy.

Author Tara Hudson of Hereafter wrote brilliantly on PACING and how to keep readers reading.

Tom Leveen, author of Party, offers a fabulous list of reasons YOUR NOVEL ISN'T SUBMISSION READY.

Basically, is one giant WINfest.

There's more going on today, and I'm sure the forums will stay up tomorrow and for a while, so if you'd like to post your query or critique someone else's, head over there and register.

While you're there, check out my:

query for MUSED, young adult contemp fantasy
query for LOVE ME OR LET ME DIE, young adult paranormal romance
first 250 words LOVE ME OR LET ME DIE
five pages of LOVE ME OR LET ME DIE

You do need to register (FREE) to participate in the forums, and agents will be lurking throughout the day at random times. :)  (I have friends who have gotten requests, so it's totally worth a look!)

Good luck and have fun on this the last day of WriteOnCon 2011.

p.s. I've joined a Blog Chain of epicness and will be taking my turn tomorrow. You can read the other posts by Sandra, Matt, and Kate if you'd like a sneak peak of our current topic. :)

  1. WriteOnCon has been phenomenal, hasn't it! I am so glad I decided to do it. I wish I would have understood more and been more prepared, but that's how these things work... we LEARN so much! I can't wait for the next one!

  2. This is my first year diving in and participating, rather than lurking after the fact. Having a hard time keeping up, but so glad that I can come back at my leisure and follow up on archived items!

  3. Abby, that's exactly how conferences work for me. Always leave with my mind expanded feeling like I have a ton of work ahead of me.

    Angelica, me too! I love that they keep the linky schedule up after the fact. It's so easy to access everything on our own timetable. Amazing resource!

  4. I hate my job. I've been missing out on EVERYTHING at WOC!


Speak up! You will be heard...or read.
