2013 Pennwriters Conference

May 21st, 2013

Hey folks,

I spent this past weekend in Pittsburgh at the annual Pennwriters Conference. For those who don’t know, I’ve been a member of Pennwriters for about ten years. When I first joined, I was an unpublished fledgling, and the organization was instrumental in my journey to professional publication.

The annual conference switches between Lancaster, PA and Pittsburgh each year, and this was the first time I’ve gone to the western event. And I’m so glad I did. I presented modules (lectures) about how to pitch to an agent/editor and how to revise your novel. Both were very well-received, so I guess my rampant stage-fright was not evident.

On top of presenting, I spent a lot of time just talking to my fellow members and re-connecting. Writing is a lonely business, and it really helps me to share my experiences (and fears) with other writers.

There are too many people to thank for my wonderful time at this year’s conference, but I can’t neglect to thank the hard-working conference¬†officers and volunteers.

I can’t wait till next year!

Aaron’s Books

July 13th, 2010

This awesome indie bookstore hosted me for a book signing last Friday, which was also their Five-Year anniversary (they had cake!). It was a great experience. The store is situated on the main drag of Lititz, PA. A lot of people came through the store while I was there. We even sold enough copies to make Shadow’s Son their No. 1 bestseller last week — yes, I am a bestselling author somewhere.

The owners (Todd, Sam, and young Sir Aaron) and bookseller (a fellow Pennwriter!) Vicky Burkholder are about the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. If you live in Lititz, you probably already know that. If not, stop in and say hello. They have a great selection of new and used books, and a playroom in the back for the kids while you browse.

If you happen to pick up a copy of my book while you’re there, I wouldn’t mind.
