There’s been so much going on lately! I’ve been gearing up for the upcoming Storymakers Conference next month. It’s the biggest writers conference in Utah and goes for three days. I’m participating in a Publication Primer, where I’m put in a group with three other writers and a published author to workshop a selection from our books. I also entered the first chapter contest where I’ll recieve valuable feedback. The most exciting part for me is that I’m pitching my book to an amazing agent. Connecting with the right agent is a HUGE deal for aspiring authors and one of the very best ways to find your dream agent is to sign up for pitch sessions.
I had new headshots taken by the very talented Tiffany at Adore Photography (pic above is an example) to update my website and business cards and I’m getting excited to reconnect with all my local Utah writer friends. Only a few more weeks!
I also just did a post for Delicious Reads: 5 DELICIOUS READS SECRETS
Don’t tell ANYONE about it.
I’ve been listening to lots of audiobooks lately. Here are a few with the link to my Review on Goodreads:
The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison: 4 Stars-See My Review This is a really interesting twist- it’s about a murder set in a highly populated Mormon community.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: 5 Stars! See My Review I think this is the new BUZZ BOOK right now! It’s a psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns . . . I totally recommend it!
The Price of Blood by Patricia Bracewell: 5 Stars! See My Review This is the second book in this series and I can’t say enough good things about it!
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson: 3.5 Stars- See My Review We did this book for our Delicious Reads book club. It’s two historical non-fiction stories in one: the serial killer H.H. Holmes and the Chicago World Fair. Both are gripping.
The Stranger by Harlan Coben: 5 Stars! See My Review You can’t really go wrong with a Harlan Coben book. He’s a master with page-turners and didn’t disappoint.
I’m also currently reading The King of Round Valley by Everett Powers, Memory Man by David Baldacci, and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Vern.
So that’s the sum-up of what’s been happening with me! Summer is sneaking right up on me and I have a lot to do before then! Better get crackin’!
Til next time,
