Author/Agent panel.

Okay, I know for a lot of you, the word: Agent caught your attention much more than the word: Author.

Don't worry, I'm used to it.

Anyway, on Monday, August 24th my agent, the very nice Erin Murphy, will appear with me and other cool authors at 7:00 at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, Arizona. She will answer all of your questions about the literary world and probably tell some personal tales about me and how I hoisted a stray cat on her. Which is a true story by the way, and the reason other agents are afraid to talk to me in public places.

Here are the details:

Time: Monday, August 24, 2009 7:00 p.m.
Location: Changing Hands Bookstore
HOW TO WRITE & ILLUSTRATE A KIDS’ BOOK

Explore the writing, marketing, and publishing process involved in creating first-rate children’s literature with authors J. S. Lewis (The Fall of the Templar), Janette Rallison (Just One Wish), author-illustrator Chris Gall (Dinotrux) and illustrator Amanda Shepherd (Such A Silly Baby!). Joining them is literary agent Erin Murphy, who is not taking unsolicited work but will answer questions.

Yah, except if I jumped in the car right now, I wouldn't make it.

When are we ever going to get the "beam me up Scottie" thing going? Come on technology, move on that already.

Hope they come out in gushing droves.

That sounds awesome. If I can tweak the family night plans I might be able to make it.

Valerie Ipson said...

...or that can be our family night!

Oh, I wish I could come! I'm totally laughing at that stray cat thing. I would love to hear that story...

Thanks for the heads up about the panel tonight. As always--you did a great job!!! I enjoyed all of it and I stopped on the way home to replenish my chocolate supply. Gotta big writing day planned for tomorrow!

Janette Rallison said...

Yes, we told everyone that the secret to writing well was lots of chocolate--and if you listened to Chris Gall, beer.

To each their own.

My secret happens to be Cheetos. But that's just me.

Janette, it was so great to see you! Although how we ended up sitting on opposite ends of the stage, I don't know...I'm looking for some newish pictures of that stray cat to send you right now!
