I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak on a panel of published authors for Open Book’s Publishing Academy – Fantasy Fiction Workshop. Look, I even have proof – that’s me, second from the left … the one that looks totally out of place 🙂
What a great time! We had a wonderful discussion with the students and the other authors on the panel about where we get our ideas, how we keep from being distracted and other valuable insights into the writing process. Other authors included Wesley Chu, Libby Fischer-Hellmann and Patricia Ann McNair of Columbia College among others.
The students were great, and they asked some fantastic questions. Luckily I remembered to bring my “Adventures of the Salamander” bookmarks to hand out to everyone. I look forward to doing more projects and presentations with Open Book in the near future.
