Tax Week – and a Conference Announcement

Since it’s tax week, I’m over at the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers blog sharing some tips about writers and estimated taxes:

Independent contractors of all varieties welcome!

With conference season fast approaching, I also thought I’d say a word or two about the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Colorado Gold Conference, which takes place September 5-7, 2014 in Westminster, Colorado (just outside Denver).

I learned about Colorado Gold in 2011, less than a month before the conference. I registered, hopped on a plane, and found myself surrounded by amazing classes, welcoming people, and a community unlike any other I’ve seen at a writers’ conference.

I’ve returned every September since, and plan to do so for as long as I’m able to get on a plane.

Colorado Gold holds a special place in my heart for another reason, too: it’s the place where I met my wonderful agent, Sandra Bond, and the very first conference where I was able to sign books as a published author. The workshops, people, and atmosphere of Colorado Gold provide an powerful, educational, and nurturing environment – no matter where you are on your writing journey.

And if you do come to Denver this September, I hope you’ll find me and say hello!
