San Francisco Writers Conference
I can’t believe it’s almost here! I am attending the San Francisco Writers Conference tomorrow, and I’m excited, nervous, and as prepared as I’ll ever be.
I’ll be blogging about my experiences, and I have several questions from fellow authors I plan on asking agents, editors, and other attendees, so keep an eye out for the next Hall of Scribes article.
In preparation for the conference, I’ve been working the past few months to draft queries, a synopsis, finish editing Dawn of Corruption and put together some handouts of the first page. A big thank you to my wife who came up with the idea of using a wax seal with my logo! I think the combination will stand out and works very well with my platform and style!
All of this has taken an incredible amount of time to make sure I can put my best foot forward, but I’m ready to jump into the deep end and make a real go of being a published author. I’ve learned so much through this journey and want to thank some people who‘ve made every step enjoyable, challenging, and an experience I wouldn’t change. Drop by, check out their work, and say hi!

I finally posted the first tale in my series of short stories expanding the world of Valeron, Endless Loyalty. All the tales I have planned incorporate locations, creatures, and events that may or may not be in future books. *wink wink*
Also, the final installment covering filters in writing is posted in the author advice blog, Hall of Scribes. For the basics on filters, read part 1, but there are many nuances to filtering, so come back after applying the concepts and dig into the details of getting rid of these little pieces of dragon dung.
