This weekend I will be attending the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers' (RMFW) Colorado Gold conference in Denver, Colorado. This year's theme is "Nuggets of Knowledge," and I hope to both glean some nuggets for myself and offer some to others. For information about the conference, go to the RMFW website. For those who plan to attend, here's when and where you'll find me:
Friday, September 10th, 1:00 pm: Getting to Know Your Characters Workshop
I'll teach this writing craft workshop that offers oodles of tools and techniques for getting into the heads and hearts of your characters and turning them into realistic, three-dimensional people.
Friday, September 10th, 7:30 pm: Book Sale
I'll be signing copies of my own books, A Real Basket Case, To Hell in a Handbasket, and The Epsilon Eridani Alternative, and also of Killer Recipes, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society that includes two of my recipes. Please stop by my table for a chat!
Saturday, September 11th, 9:00 am: Agent-Author-Editor Relationships Panel
Along with my agent, Sandra Bond, and my Midnight Ink editor, Terri Bischoff, we will discuss the relationships between our roles and how to make them successful.
Sunday, September 12th, 8:00 am: Planning and Conducting a Virtual Book Tour Workshop
In this workshop, I will discuss all aspects of planning and conducting a virtual book tour in the blogosphere to promote a new book release.
You'll also find me at the meals, parties, hanging out at the bar, and networking with everyone I can. For aspiring mystery authors, I will have information about the Sisters in Crime Guppies on-line chapter, and a free chocolate fish for you if you ask me about the Guppies!
Mystery author Beth Groundwater writes the Claire Hanover gift basket designer series (A REAL BASKET CASE, 2007 Best First Novel Agatha Award finalist, TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET, 2009, and A BASKET OF TROUBLE, 2013) and the RM Outdoor Adventures series starring river ranger Mandy Tanner (DEADLY CURRENTS, 2011, an Amazon bestseller, WICKED EDDIES, 2012, finalist for the Rocky Award, and FATAL DESCENT, 2013). Beth lives in Colorado, enjoys its outdoor activities, and loves talking to book clubs.
