Are you ready for MORE conference tips?
There’s more to come at the Alley, so make sure you stay tuned.
Btw, here are some FABULOUS pre-conference links you might want to check out:


And here’s a link from Fiction Writers Connection about theDos and Don’ts of Conferences

And to liven things up a bit, check out this article from Scott Hoffman about preparing for a writers’ conference -

So how will the AlleyCats help you get ready for conference?
Monday – Ang is teaching us about One-Sheets – the best ‘cheat sheets’ for conference. It will be a graphic tutorial – so come by.
Tuesday – Get your tissues ready – Julia has some encouragement for those of you can’t attend the ACFW conference this year. It’s Raining on Prom Night.

Wednesday – Do not miss Sarah’s workshop about getting your blurb and elevator pitch ready! Conference Pitching - a Workshop!!
Thursday – Wendy posts today! Stop by and check out what kind of surprise she has for us.
Friday – Cindy’s chatting about Preparing to Meet Agents and Editors. Don’t miss it!

Any brave person out there willing to share his/her agent’s name? Or if you don’t have an agent, which would you like to meet?


If you’re not sure, check out these Alley Posts to get the scoop:

I'm TOTALLY open to continual communication! But I'm sure you gals will have way too much to do to be keeping us updated!
