Happy February! I just pulled up my calendar to see where I’ll be when and guess what? The FF&P conference is in New Orleans at the end of the month. The conference actually starts on March 2nd, but I’m going a day early to play in the French Quarter. This conference worked out with my college schedule this year, and I’m so glad I get to go. I have never been there before.
In fact, I’ll be giving a workshop on “Ten Craft Blunders that may be Holding You Back.” Sound like fun, right? Here’s the outline and a handout.
What’s awesome is that the beginning few chapters of Consumed (Dark Protectors Book 4) take place in New Orleans. So we’ll see how close I came to reality. Plus, I think copy edits won’t arrive until after I’m home, so I can tweak if necessary.
One night a bunch of us are going on a vampire tour. I also want to take the cemetery tour while I’m there. Maybe the vampires will be in the cemeteries. I’m hoping!
There will be a public book signing at the conference, so if you’re in the area, please drop by. It’ll be on Sunday, March 4th from 9am until 11am at the New Orleans Marriott.
And you find as a writer there are certain spots on the planet where you write better than others, and I believe in that. And New Orleans is one of them. –Jimmy Buffett
