LDStorymakers Day 2

Some excellent workshops, especially on taxes.  It was a good day, but the most important thing, my good friend, Nikki Trionfo won the Grand Prize for the First Chapter Contest... some pretty cool swag - Alphasmart NEO2 and “Get Out of The Slush Pile Free” Card for Deseret Book, Covenant, and Cedar Fort, Inc. - Nice job, Nikki, and well-deserved!

Made it back to Utah for LDStorymakers Conference 2013 - it was good see some old friends - Heather, Jeff, Julie, Jolyn, Nikki - and meet some new ones.  Mark and I drove down this morning.  the highlight was probably pitching my novel, Madison Blackwood, to a really nice agent - Michelle Witte - and looking forward to tomorrow's sessions and seeing more old friends and meeting several new ones!  Of note, Precision Editing will look at 10 pages of your manuscript and give you some honest feedback, which would help if you want to have them critique your entire manuscript...  Onward and upward:)
