This weekend I attended the 25th Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer's Annual Gold Conference Program, my eleventh in the last twelve years. I credit both RMFW and the conference in getting me published. This year our Jeanne was the RMFW Writer of the Year. Here she is wearing her WOTY Best of Show ribbon (and drinking hard to celebrate).
I met a bunch of great writers to include, our closing speaker: the New York Times best seller, the effervescent and brainy Shirley Jump
The conference started Friday (through the night with plenty of drinking), went all day Saturday (with more drinking), and to Sunday noon. I planned to spend the afternoon working but I'm beat.
Raise your hands, how many of you have gotten the Nigerian money scam email? This week, on the radio show This American Life
(an awesome show that you can listen to through your computer), they ran a story on scamming the scammers. Either listen here
or check out the hilarious emails on the anti-scammer website
This just in from Publishers Lunch. We all know this as old news but it's nice to get the word out:"Thriller
Jeanne Stein's next two novels featuring vampire bounty hunter Anna Strong, again to Jessica Wade at Berkley, by Scott Miller at Trident Media Group."
