Love is Murder was a fabulous conference in Chicago this weekend. The food was great, the entertainment phenomenal, and the people were super cool! I don't think I've enjoyed myself more! I took my first pitches as acquiring editor for Quake and I heard about some outstanding stories I'm looking forward to reading. As always, Karen and I had a blast!
I got to meet Claudia Whitsitt, the author of The Wrong Guy and Gale Borger the author of Totally Buzzed. Both of these great ladies made the event a fabulous time for me. They are just as terrific in real life as they are on the page and the internet. I'm so looking forward to getting to spend more time with them in the future!
Of course I got to see a bunch of my favorite people as well. Luisa Buehler, always elegant and charming, did a great job hosting the conference. Allan Ansorge was there, too, and as always, very warm and funny! Nancy Sweetland, a super lady I know from WRWA joined me during the book signing and kept me company as we waited in line. It was great to see Carl Brookins, Amy Alessio, and so many more! :) I could go on and on. Not to mention the great speakers we had and the fun buzz about the industry I heard. (Mostly about how ebooks are becoming the standard.)
I'm so excited about everything that's going on in my writing life. There are many great things happening! February and March are going to be filled with awesome tour spots. Please stop by and let your friends know as well! You can find a clickable list of links on my website at Jennifer-Turner.com!
I've also going to be revamping my whole website as soon as I meet some writing and editing deadlines. Overall, life is great! Let me know how all of you are doing :)
