So...how did it go for me? Great! Thanks for asking.
Friday night was an awesome mixer put on by my twitter friend @Sarah_OKC and it was a lot of fun. I met a lot of new people and even saw some familiar faces. It was so nice hanging out with other writers who are on the same page (haha) as me. You can see how passionate everyone is for the books that they've been slaving away at.
Saturday morning I met with Agents Emily Keyes and Sarah Negovitch to look over my query letter. They only had a few minor things to fix, but overall, they loved it! It really made me feel good to have that coming from some top agents. Later that afternoon I had a one-on-one pitch session with Agent Katie Shae Boutillier and she was really interested in my manuscript. She asked for fifty pages. Yeah for me! That evening we had another mixer, this time put on by the conference. It was fun to hang out with old friends and some new ones.
Sunday I had an early meeting with Agent Laura Zats. She was super nice and was easy to talk to. She also asked for the first fifty pages. Yeah for me again!
Overall, I had a fabulous time at DFWCON. I will start posting again more regularly and even try out Vlogging...video + Blog...I'll post about that class next time!!
