X-Factor: Responsibilities & Issues for Women Writing Women
Kelli Stanley (M) - Lisa Brackmann, Robin Burcell, Marcia Clark, Sara J. Henry
I know most of these folks and their books and in particular am friends with Marcia - these will be great panels. Here's the full lineup for the conference - you still have time to register.
And on Saturday night I'll be co-hosting a table at the banquet with my friend Chris F. Holm (love his books) and his charming wife Katrina Niidas Holm (who reviews books). Also looking forward to seeing my friends Jenn and Don Longmuir, who run part of the book room, and Catriona McPherson, who's up for two (two!) awards in different categories, and many more.
Yes, it's sort of like summer camp - except for grownups. In March. Hope to see some of you there.
