When The Cat isn’t in the mood to bap the Little Vampires into the air and give them the sensation of flight, The Dog is more than happy to oblige them. The Dog is, unfortunately, easily distracted by the outdoors, and toys, the air . . .

I attended my first writer’s conference this weekend, in the hopes of learning about getting wider distribution for the Little Vampires books. I did indeed learn a lot about the current publishing world. I learned about the likes and dislikes of some potential agents, and I learned how to write a great query letter. I never did learn what all those different cheeses were at one of the mixers, but I can live with that.

Have to give a shout-out to two wonderful fellow creative types that I met. Jessica Simon, author of From Ice to Ashes, and C. Edward Sellner of Visionary Comics were kind enough to share their table with me at the Mystery Cheese Mixer. Go check out their work!
