Write-on Con is next week!

If you’re not a writer, you might want to skip this post. However, if you’re at any stage of the writing game, and eventually want to pursue publishing, you should definitely check out Write-on Con. It’s an online convention, which is great for those of us who live in the boondocks, and completely free. All you need to participate is a computer and decent internet. Well, it helps if you have a novel written and a query letter, but I’ve done it without and still gotten a lot out of the conference just by watching and listening.

Did I mention there are a number of agents who participate in this conference? Not only do they offer critiques, but they interact with writers. These connections prove invaluable, but several people have also had agents request partials or fulls. So it’s a win-win!

P.G. Holyfield.

Yesterday we said good-bye to a great author, P.G. Holyfield. His novel, Murder at Avedon Hill , was the first podiobook I ever listened to. I never met him, but his words touched me and his loss, at such a young age, is also a great loss to the world, as well.

Some of his friends have opened up a gofundme account to help his family with expenses. I think you read some of the comments and see how much P.G. meant to so many people, it might help you understand what a great loss this is. If you’re inclined, I know his family would greatly appreciate the help and support. Or, buy one of his books. I know I will.
