I had an absolutely wonderful time. Taylorville IL is a fascinating small town.
The conference itself was small, but the people who attended were attentive and anxious to learn more about writing. I love giving writing workshops. So many people helped me when I was starting out--and I still do get lots of help--that I enjoy giving back some of what I received.
Best was spending some quality time with Billie--we had two nice dinners together and guess what? I signed a contract with Oak Tree Press for the next in my Rocky Bluff P.D. series, No Sanctuary. Might exciting and well-worth the uncomfortable plane rides to and fro.
