Here are the highlights:
Bestselling Author Mari Mancusi, Social Media Expert Kristen Lamb, Samhain
Publishing's Lindsey Faber, L Perkins Agency's Louise Fury, and The Nelson
Literary Agency's Sara Megibow will be our spotlight guests at the 2012
North Texas Two Step Conference.
Editor Lindsey Faber and Agent Louise Fury have offered to host a critique
session during the conference. With this offering, you will have a choice
between a traditional pitch session or a critique. The critique will be set
up in a way that you'll send 10 pages in a month before the conference and
then during the conference you'll go into a group critique session with your
industry professional. This is a great chance for you to get in front of an
agent/editor even if your story isn't ready to pitch and submit.
Kristen Lamb will be doing a small session on Social Media. Limited in size,
this will be a small group session where you will get a more personalized
chance to sit with Kristen and ask any Social Media Questions you have.
Friday night will be a book signing, open to the public, with a percentage
of proceeds going to support Children's Literacy. If you're a published
author interested in participating, please contact Nikki. You can
participate with indie-published print books, but you must be registered for
