I just got back from the Pikes Peak Writers Conference 2017, and had a great time. I learned a lot about the publishing industry. I had some of my book and my book’s query critiqued, and both were positively received. I even got a referral! Hopefully everything goes splendidly. I met Michael R Underwood, host of the Speculate! podcast that I listen to, Kevin Hearne, author of the Oberon books (aka the Iron Druid Chronicles), and Josh of Joshsworstnightmare.com, along with a whole host of different people.
My book haul from the Conference includes Genrenauts, The Rowan, Into the Fire, and The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken.
Last week I stopped by the library, and my book haul included World War One: A Short History, The Little Book of Common Sense Investing, World War I: the Essential Reference Guide, Solstice Wood, 1913: the Year before the Storm, The First World War: A very short introduction, Almanac of World War I, The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Sourcebook, The War and the Future, and From the Boer War to the Cold War. Hopefully I finish most of them before I have to return them.
I am presently reading The Eye of the World, Almanac of World War I and Genrenauts. Have you read anyof these before? What are you reading?
Writing and Editing: I got basically none done this week.
Glad that you had such a positive experience at the Conference! Sounds like it was fun. You’re reading list is very diverse – which is great!
Was great meeting you John. Let me know if you come across any good horror fiction while climbing Mount Readmore!
Hey! Good to hear from you! I’ll be sure to send anything I find your way!
