    Thanks so much for the good food, being in the company of (published) writers sharing their work and all the expressed great insights. And, of course for the vote of confidence that what is rattling around in my head may actually be something to put on paper and worth a read.

    Great discussions by talented, intelligent writers who really listened to each piece and made insightful comments. Jan Kardys is not only one of the most knowledgeable agents/editors out there, but she's a fabulous host, an excellent discussion leader, and a terrific cook.

    Hi,
    I'm also new to the group. I'll bring bacon beans - green beans cooked in vinegar.
    When you say bring 15 pages is that double or single spaced.
    Thanks.

    Just got another rejection of an agent that had requested my full MS. This one provided no feedback and the first one said they passed it to senior management and ultimately rejected it. I am greatly looking forward to everyones' honest feedback and advice as it seems very difficult to get in the publishing world. I suppose I had to have done sonething right to elicit requests to even read the full. Okay, no more rambling. Back to the drawing board!

      Yes, MS stands for manuscript. Don't forget to make enough copies for everyone. Looking forward to meeting you.

      You’re right; I’ll bring Heresy’s Kisses with Almonds, a lot easier. Speaking of money, I don’t have funds to register for your conference. I will register as soon as I am able, looks great, I’ll be there. I know, I know “Money talks, baloney walks”, what kind of bread and would you prefer toasted?

    • Billy E.

      All kidding aside, I'll be there with something worthy.
