Twitter Tuesday~Conferences, New Agents, & More

Though Halloween is over I have a bag of treats for you! Last week was an excellent week for writers on Twitter. Registration for the Writer's Digest conference has opened! You can check it out here:

Chuck Sambuchino of Writer's Digest introduces us to another new agent. Like he says, new agents are a golden opportunity for writers seeking representation.

  11. Awesome roundup, thank you! These are especially helpful for those of us down under. A lot of tweets go out while we sleep, and it's tricky keeping up with them all.

  12. HI Heather,

    I just received a charming email from your sister, Karlene, thanking me for the award I gave you ladies. She also told me to visit you at you site and I'm glad I did... I am your 200th follower. What fun. I write y/a fantasy too. I just had a glimpse of you site and it looks amazing. I can't wait to explore more of it and get to know you and your sisters better.

    Please stop by my blog when you get the chance to say hi. I also Illustrate my work. I have the cover and some of the interiors of my first novel. I'll look forward to your visit.

    Michael
