Oh, The Places I’ll Go This Summer

Happy June!

It’s the season of sun, kids asking to be driven to the pool, sleeping in… and drafting brand new novels, for me. I’ll be checking back in from time to time with writing news and personal summer updates, but mostly, I’m going to relax and enjoy the heat.

That said, if you’re looking for me at any of the following places, I’d love to share a lemonade!

The Writer’s League of Texas Annual Editors and Agents Conference.

This was the conference that started it all for me, professionally – so I’m delighted to be speaking there on Saturday, June 27, I’ll be talking about “Writing for Tweens and Teens” at 2 pm.

I’ll also be moderating a panel at 10:15 a.m. that day, called “Literary Guides: How to Find Help on Your Journey to Publishing.” It should be SUPER useful!

AROHO Conference

Every two years  I cross my fingers that I get into the A Room of her Own Foundation’s conference. This year should be the best ever. Check out the line-up. I’m especially excited to be studying with Cynthia Leitich Smith in a small group. Fun!

Other than that, I’m looking forward to a quick family vacation to Seattle and Vancouver Island, and local fun with visiting relatives…. and maybe, just maybe, a finished manuscript or two at the end of August.

Happy Summer, y’all!
