I attended the San Fransisco Writers conference this last week. I was so nervous to persue this because I never have considered myself a writer. I have had a few short stories published before but writing a book is something so very different. As I stepped out of my comfort zone and began to rub shoulders with some of the “big dogs” in the industry, I was pleasantly surprised to be embraced by them. They were, after all, human like me. They gave me the encouragement I needed to take the next step in getting my book published. I would like to invite you, my friends and family, to join me on this great adventure. I would love your feedback on anything good or bad because after all, I am a newbie at this and any criticism is appreciated and welcomed.
