Writers' Events

Over the past couple of months, I've attended two writer's events. One was at a Barnes and Nobles store. It was free for all who wanted to go and pick the author's brains about editors, publishers, or various markets. I got a couple of autographs too! There were many books readily available at different tables. I learned a lot of new information and even found out about a few markets I had never heard of. It was well worth my time to drive two hours and spend a few hours at that event.

The second event was an actual writer's seminar. This one happened to cost $50.00 and, again, was well worth my time (and money). The speaker and author of multiple books, Peter Davidson, began at 9:00 am and it was over at 4:00 pm. We enjoyed a couple of short breaks and a lunch hour. Other than that, there was several hours of Mr. Davidson filling our minds with valuable information.

A "traveling bookstore" as Davidson put it, was set up right outside the conference room doors so we could purchase the writer's reference books he informed us of - very convenient.

If you want to know more about Davidson or see his seminar schedule, you can go to his website:

Until next time....
