Apparently, there's a free writers conference in Ephraim, Utah: Write Here in Ephraim. And it was a blast! Lots of authors with a good sized crowd. This is its second year. If I had known, I would've gone to the first one. I'm actually an alumni from Snow College, so it was a good excuse to drive down to the old stomping grounds and relive a few fond memories. One of my novels was written entirely in their library - it was sad to see it's been converted into classrooms since. At least I ran into a few friends who helped cheer me up!
Julie Wright, Cyndy M. Hogan, and Ali Cross
There were more than plenty presentations to choose from, an author Q & A, and generous giveaways. All wrapped into one free conference. Karen Hoover and Elizabeth Mueller joined us at Roy's afterward - what I think is the best pizza place in the state.
And to think StoryMakers and CONduit are just around the corner. I'll be hitting those two ... too. So. If you happen to show up, we should hang out. Totally!

Update: No success recovering some documents. Thankfully I didn't lose most of my rewrite (thank you, backups), but my latest two chapters disappeared. Bummer. As much as I love Dragon's, I'm taking it as a sign that something else wants to be worked on more.
And so, I'm having a race: brainstorming a MG series and polishing 50K of an Adult Fantasy I shelved - whichever one I catch up to first is what I'll work on next. Help me out - pick a team to cheer for!
