I spent this past weekend at the Desert Dreams conference in Scottsdale, put on by the Desert Rose chapter of RWA. What a fine conference! I loved every minute of it, even if I want to sleep for a week now. I did a workshop about finding catchy titles/premises (even if the title is later changed...). My editor Leah Hultenschmidt at Dorchester was kind enough to do the workshop with me and thanks to her, the room was full. :-)
I highly recommend this conference which is put on every two years. Lisa Gardner gave a great workshop on how to focus in on your career and figure out what you're doing. Jennie Cruisie and Bob Mayer did a 2-hour workshop on how to start a novel--finding characters and conflicts and story. Debbie Macomber was the keynote speaker--she is so funny!
Now I'm trying to clear my head and get back to work. I have revisions due to Berkley, need to do a tiny edit on the vampire novella, and of course write another book! (or two).
