Marketing Monday

I was a vewwwwwy naughty blogger last week. Didn't blog AT ALL! And I have no excuse other than life got in the way, as often happens to me. To most of us, I think. It's work. I love my clients, adore them, a couple are my very best friends (who pay me money), but it can get overwhelming at times because my design projects pull me in multiple directions. Sigh.

Okay, marketing update. All is going very well. But as expected, I'm still in wait mode. And that's fine, for now. Though I admit to getting antsy. I want to move on to the next step! Patience, patience. Good things come to those who wait.

In other news associated with marketing, I'm entering KNIGHT'S CURSE in this year's PASIC. I'm not much of a contest person these days, but now and then I'll find a good one to try. So it's off to the post office tomorrow to drop my entry in the mail so that I can meet the May 27 deadline.

Speaking of contests, I'll be helping judge this year's Colorado Gold Writing Contest. The deadline for entering is swiftly approaching, so if you're an unpublished novelist, get thee to the RMFW website and download an entry form. You have until June 2 to submit your first 20 pages and an 8 page synopsis. Final judges are actively acquiring agents and editors. Don't miss this excellent opportunity.

And speaking of RMFW (stop rolling your eyes at me!), the Colorado Gold Conference is now taking registrations! To learn more about this excellent writing conference to be held this fall on September 12, 13 and 14, visit the website to get the details. Jeanne Stein and I will be giving a workshop on writing urban fantasy, and I'll also be doing a workshop on how to make those online writing connections work for you.

Stay tuned for more marketing news to announced as soon as I have more information.
