What am I excited about? Besides the fact it's a local conference and I know several of the people organizing it? Let's see...
- Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain (fabulous book that even I enjoyed even though it isn't normally my genre) will be there!!!
- Sessions, instead of being held in conference rooms, are held in homes in and near Coupeville. These "chat houses" provide a friendly environment and relaxing setting, and a very unique format in which to conduct things.
- It's Coupeville! Despite the fact it will probably rain, this town is adorable and the surroundings GORGEOUS.
- Manuscript critiques and agent pitching
Looking forward to seeing those of you who can come. I'll be there as a volunteer, but please find me and say hi! (You can pitch me if you'd like, even though I won't formally be taking pitches.)
For those of you not attending, I'll be bragging about it on Monday and perhaps convince you to attend next year.
