I’m happy to report that I’ve made some progress toward my goal of meeting with colleagues in the flesh, one of three resolutions I posted on New Year’s Day (https://editmore.com/looking-to-a-new-year/looking-to-a-new-year.html).
Tonight, I registered for the Independent Book Publisher’s Association conference in March in San Francisco (http://ibpapublishinguniversity.com/). I’ve never been one for crowds, and this trip will be a pretty big expenditure for my little business, so it took me a couple of tries before I could actually hit the “confirm” button on the registration form.
But I hope this conference will give me a chance to learn much more about the process of creating a book from idea through printed-page stage. And provide opportunities to meet with others involved with publishing and writing.
I’m also making plans to attend the Antelope Valley Christian Writers’ Conference in Lancaster in May (http://www.avwriters.com/location.html). This weekend I was in touch (by email—not face to face yet) with one of the organizers who offered me a chance to display information about my services at the conference. Sounds like a great opportunity and another step toward resolution fulfillment.
