First, I would like to thank the King County Library System, and especially Deb Schneider, for inviting me up to speak at three branches. The audiences were great. I learned so much from interacting with them. And I'm already hearing from folks who are mid-read in Get Known and are already off and brainstorming ideas for their platform development. Thanks, Deb, Mary Jane, and everyone who attended!
Now THIS is really cool. Violette of Violette's Folk Art (which is wonderful btw) shared this illustrated response to the May/June issue of Writer's Digest Magazine. I feel proud and humbled to have played a small part in the issue. >>>
Lindsey over at The Write Words says "Nonfiction is good for the mind, Fiction is good for the soul." I think that's an apt sentiment, don't you? She keeps her copy of Get Known in the kitchen. Where do you keep yours? (Don't say the bathroom!)
Agent Robin Mizell mentioned not only that I will be at the Writer's Digest/BEA conference in NYC on Wednesday, May 27th, but that I am "charming." I believe what she is referring to is my lack of tolerance for baloney and my commitment to keeping the platform conversation based in reality for the sake of writers.
More on that, in a short rant, tomorrow. :)
