One thought on “Supercharge Your Writing Conference

  1. The conferencer is now past us. It was great. Deb Dixon is a fount of knowledge about how to make a book better. Her GMC was one of the first writing books I bought years ago. But I still learned some things I can use today.
    I met some cool people. Sapphire Phelan whos interview is up on the blog. J.L. Stermer, an agent, and Cathy Maxwell, author, were both entertaining and fun at dinner. I also have to thank my buddies, Cheryl and Denise for giving me a ride and keeping me in live all day.
    If you were there, say hey in the comment section here.
