One of the highlights was when I got to talk about my upcoming book, and how Between Two Fires comes out with St. Martin's Press this August. I got an ovation from my audience of a few hundred, which doesn't happen every day, so that was pretty cool to say the least. It was fun not only to see the interest in my novel, but to see how it inspired other authors to keep pursuing their own writing dreams.
In the pics seen here, I'm the dude two people to the left of the podium. We got to kick off the conference with opening remarks to all attendees, which was pretty fun. I look forward to and hope to speak next year, when I can actually hold up my book in my hands.
