Nov. 10 Cheyenne conference outlines steps to getting your novel published

Joanne Kennedy's new novel
Some of my local writing pals are staging a one-day conference "designed to help you navigate the next steps toward the publication of your novel." It will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10, 10:15 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Laramie County Public Library, 2200 Pioneer Ave., Cheyenne.

Presenters include members of my writing group, Mary Gillgannon and Liz Roadifer, and an emeritus member of the group, Joanne Kennedy. Mary writes historical novels, as well as Celtic and Regency romances. Liz writes mysteries and sci-fi fantasy. Joanne is the well-known author of cowboy romances set in Wyoming.

Also presenting are Amanda Cabot, a Cheyenne author of Christian romances; teen novelist and library board member Tina Ann Forkner; "Saucy Lucy" series mystery novelist Cindy Keen Reynders; and memoirist and sci-fi writer Marjie Smith.

That's one heck of a line-up. I attended a recent presentation by Mary, in which she outlined the steps to getting your work published as e-books. I learned a lot and took lots of notes (see my blog about it here).

The workshop is free. The day includes a lunch-hour book signing, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Laramie County Library Foundation. You can brown-bag it, or get a delicious lunch at the library cafe (I eat there often).

FMI: 307-634-3561.
