Have you registered for the Writer's Digest Annual Conference?

The following was in my inbox this morning.  Talk about a FABULOUS opportunity.  Are you registered yet?  Don't miss this one! -G.P.

Register online through July 30 for the best price!
 The  Writer's Digest Annual ConferenceJuly 31–August 2 in New York City—is an exciting event for a number of reasons, from the stellar lineup of instructors to the giant Pitch Slam . This year, however, we're adding something that takes the pitch of excitement to a whole new level.

Writer's Digest has created a new mentoring program that we'll be offering to one lucky conference attendee selected at random. It's a terrific opportunity to improve your craft, revise your work, find an agent and hopefully get published!

Here how it works:

On Saturday night, August 1, right before the introduction of our central keynote, I'll be drawing the name of one attendee at random. That person will be announced as our first ever Writer's Digest mentee. For the next year, we'll provide that writer with a host of FREE educational tools, services, and more—all designed to help the recipient achieve his or her writing goals.

Here's what the mentee receives:

But that's not all. Our mentee will also receive a direct line to the Writer's Digest editorial staff. Have a question about agents? Give us a call. Curious about the inner workings of publishing, or how to position your book so that an editor will take notice? Send us an email. We'll be there to answer your questions and assist where we can.

The mentorship program lasts for an entire year, until the next annual conference. At that point, we'll announce our next mentee.

If you're thinking about attending the Writer's Digest Annual Conference, but are still undecided, now you have one more reason to join us!

Come experience the excitement, the energy, and the education found at the Writer's Digest Annual Conference and maybe—just maybe—you'll be working with us in the year to come.

I hope to see you there!

Want to meet me?

Due to my personal circumstances I rarely attend conferences. However, I'll be at two this year, and I'd love to meet you if you are in the area.

1. Penned Con (July 23-25th, 2015) St. Louis

I attended this one last year and highly recommend it!
If you plan to attend this event and would like to pre-order books from me, please use this form. I sold out early last year and only bring a limited supply of books that are not pre-sold.

2. Writers Digest Annual Conference (July 31-August 2) New York City

I'll be speaking about the business of self-publishing and how to get started on a limited budget. I'll also answer questions as part of a panel and be signing books. Please complete this form to order books. Because I'll be flying to this venue, I'll have very few extra books with me.

There's still time to register for both of these conferences. I hope to see you there!
