I’m a longtime member of Pacific Northwest Writers Association. PNWA is one of the largest regional writers organizations, and over five hundred writers attended the annual conference last week. This year’s literary contest had a thousand entries in twelve categories. I try to attend the annual conference where I serve on panels, teach workshops and hang out with talented writers. I also enter one of my new projects in the literary contest to try out the opening on reader/judges. My new YA thriller, The Boyfriend App, won a finalist award in the Romance category. It was my pleasure to meet two Wild Rose Press authors, Christine Grabowski and Kerry Blaisdale, and sit the Autograph Party with them. The picture of me behind my two award-winning YA paranormals on the left is the “selling out” I’m referring to. It was a grand party and I had an autographing good time!
