Back in the Office

Hey everyone. I’m back in the office from NYC. Wednesday’s writers conference was awesome. We had about 450 writers attend and about 70 agents were there to listen to pitches. The morning was filled with breakout sessions, including one by the author of one of the books I’m editing, William Cane of the forthcoming Write Like the Masters, who gave a lecture about developing your writing style by first emulating the great writers from history. The afternoon was full of excitement as attendees participated in the pitch slam where they got face time with agents–I had lots of writers come up to me later saying they’d had requests from the agents to send their full manuscripts! 

Here’s a few photos from NYC (these are from my camera phone, I’ll have more to share with you next week).
