Yesterday, a whole bunch of ANWA members, some wonderful presenters, and other folks gathered at Eagle's Aerie School in Gilbert, Arizona, for a writers conference.
What a day it was! The ANWA Board has been planning the event for many months: setting a date, obtaining the facility, getting the keynote speaker and other teachers, arranging for catering, and sending out notices about the conference.
Almost 100 people came together to enjoy instruction and buy books. Over 25 authors, composers, and very talented people sold their work at the end of the day.
Although it's impossible to attend all the classes, I learned to visualize a completed work, do my research, make the work compelling, and then publicize and sell it.
I'd like to express my thanks to the many amazing people who brought all the details together, but especially to the presenters, who gave so freely of their time and expertise. Thank you, JoAnn Arnold, Scott Emerson, Lorna Hale, Doug Johnston, Gracia N. Jones, and my dear friend, Vijaya Schartz, for spreading a feast so that so many could partake.
