Did That Just Happen?

Last weekend I attended ACFW's annual writer's conference. It was a success, as I walked away with requests from three literary agents as well as one editor. I know that doesn't mean much to those of you who are unaware of how things work in the publication industry. Let me just tell you that it is huge!

One thing I have to do is work on my platform, i.e. building an audience. Maintaining a blog is one of the routes I plan to take. The agents who I submit to will be looking for this. When they see I have people interested, following, and who comment, it lets them see that I’m working to promote myself. So, if you would, please comment, share, and do whatever else it is you may think of to help!

An agent who requested proposals is Linda Glaz from Hartline Literary Agency. She was super sweet and kind enough to allow me to take a photo with her for my blog. Everyone, meet Linda!
