Thanks SCBWI and Team Blog

The SCBWI conference in LA rocked! 

As writers, we are truly blessed to have such a terrific professional organization.  The SCBWI team goes above and beyond to meet the needs of its members.  I've been to the conference as an unpublished author, as an author working through revisions after a sale, and as the author of a published novel.  Each time, the conference offered programs which addressed my needs at that time.  At my first conference, I attended the sessions with editors and agents and learned about the process of submitting a manuscript.  This year, with the novel debuting, I attended the workshops on school visits and social media.   If you're a children's book writer, this is the organization for you. 

I first found out about the SCBWI through THE CHILDREN'S WRITERS AND ILLUSTRATORS MARKET GUIDE.  Alice Pope edits this, and she organized the team blog for the 2009 SCBWI Conference.  Check out all the conference happenings here:  http://scbwiconference.blogspot.com/

My friend and fellow writer Jolie Stekly was one of the official bloggers.  Here's her interview with me and the fantastic Ann Haywood Leal.

It was such a treat to see you and interview you, Jill! I'm so looking forward to watching SWEETHEART shine on the shelves. :)
