Look who they have to come and give us the benefit of their wisdom.

JOSH LANYONJuly 14th, Josh has graciously agreed to kick off the conference with a workshop.

Then, ROWAN MCBRIDE (who has a free serial up on his site if you want a taste)

and JET MYKLES and SHAYLA KERSTEN will keep the conversation going for the next three days.

For a Y.A. workshop, CARRIE JONES and MARLEY GIBSONwill be doing a panel on "Creating Believable Teen Characters".

LINNEA SINCLAIRThis Rita Award winning author is going to do a workshop on something dear to my (and all my editor's) heart. DEEP POV! Her books are fantastic and if you haven't checked her out, take a look.

PATTI O'SHEAAnother award winning author who is going to discuss character motivation. We had discussions about torture and dungeons so don't miss it.

ONA RUSSEL This historical fiction writer is doing a workshop along with STEVE HOCKINGSMITHand possibly one other author called "The Perils and Pleasures of Historical Research (for the purpose of writing a historical novel). Both of them write historicals in interesting time periods so this ought to be fantastic.Best all (for me) we get to have

JOEY W. HILL and possibly another Erotic Romance author doing a workshop on going from epublishing to New York.

SASHA WHITE will do a Q&A on BURNOUT: How to avoid it and how to deal with it.

Last year I signed up for this conference, but the amount of messages drove me crazy and I withdrew. Maybe that's why she says "no e-mail exchange group" this time.

I posted my random facts, BTW.

Sounds like this is going to be fun as well as informative, especially the one on avoiding "burn-out". Thanks for sharing this great information.
