up in the mountains
Still in rewrite mode. Had a little break when I attended the Crested Butte Writers Conference this weekend. Hobnobbed with lots of great writers and readers.
The headliner was John Shors
, author of the acclaimed Beneath a Marble Sky
, a fictionalized account of the building of the Taj Mahal. John is the king of self-promotion and leveraged a boatload of book clubs to get on bestseller lists and a movie deal.
Another amazing and talented writer was Karen Joy Fowler
, sci-fi Hugo Award winner, and author of The Jane Austen Book Club
. Now a major motion picture
Next up was the prolific and successful Susan Wiggs
, RITA Award winner and NYT bestseller.
Check 'em all out.
Crested Butte is an awesome resort. The place is mountain bike heaven and the locals socialize by riding in costume, to include sumo and pirate.Here's another reminder:
