Silken Sands Conference

The Silken Sands Conference was wonderful! I spent time with agents, editors, and authors. The list of things that I learned could go on forever, but I know that you don’t want to hear about that. The beach was very inspirational and we even had our pitch sessions outside. It was hard to be nervous with the sound of the waves in the background.

Thank you to everyone who has prayed, sent good vibes, or any other positive energy my way. IT WORKED! We were only alloted two pitch sessions but thanks to the sun and a fair complexioned editor, I was able to pitch to three wonderful ladies. I received two requests for the first three chapter and a request for the full manuscript. For those of you who haven’t been through this, that means they are wanting to know more about my story. Please keep the prayers heading my way as these ladies hold my baby in their hands.

Now I knew that I was going to meet a lot of new people, and I knew that I would make new friends, but this one lady stands out from the rest. Jamie Farrell (click her name for her blog) and I met when I handed her a frog that was in the “goodie room.” This is a story for another day but suffice it to say that it was an ice breaker. She has the most cheerful personality and makes everything more fun. I really look forward to seeing her again.

I want to thank the ladies at the GCC for making my first conference so fun and memorable. I had a great time and can’t wait for our next one in 2012!
