LTUE: posting the presentation & Writing for Charity updates

Holy hiatus, Batman! It is great to be back on the blog. I have also discovered that I can post from my phone...I know I am not an early adopter of this technology:)

So LTUE was fantastic!! Meeting great people is always an awesome part of any writers conference. New Inker, Ryan Uhrey, came while all the other Inkers were either busy or out of town. I was invited to give my "Likeability 101" workshop but since we didn't have a projector the poor class had to deal with just me an no fun visuals. Never fear the presentation is on You can visit and search public prezis enter "Likeability."

I also want to give a shout out to the "Dark Days" Tour traveling around the West Coast states right now. Dan Wells, one of my favorite authors and friends (despite his spotty memory), is on the tour with his new installment in the Partials series, Fragments!! Because Dan has been living in Germany for nearly a year it was great to see him again. I also picked up some new books from new-to-me authors. Check out all the ladies on the tour.

Writing for Charity will be held on Saturday, April 27th. More information and registration will be opening soon. All the inkers are hoping to be there and if you missed the workshop on how to build relationships in the publishing world, you can catch it at Writing for Charity. So excited for this fabulous conference. It is one of the most affordable and talent packed conferences in Utah!!
Hope to see you there. Updates will be posted here as well as links to registration as soon as it hits the Writing for Charity blog.

Let us know if you have had a great experience at a writers conference in the last year. Post a comment!!


  1. I unfortunately have not been to a conference sine LTUE 2012, which was still a great experience--it was the one where James Owen got the standing ovation for his "Drawing out the Dragons" keynote speech. Fantastic man.

  2. Writing for Charity last year was my favorite. I met with authors and received critiques on my picture books. I enjoyed my time there. It seemed less about pounding chests and more about meeting people. (Sorry LTUE, but you are all about pounding your chest.)

  3. I will miss Writing for Charity this year. My hubby will graduate from college the day before and we have family traveling to be with us. Sad day, but family is family.
