Had such a nice time with my writing pals at North Texas Romance Writers of America. We evaluated people's back cover blurbs for those brave enough to turn them in. There are a lot of good plots percolating amongst our group. Dang. Need to read those.
Had a nice little after meeting chat with author Cindy Dees. Okay, I mostly eavesdropped while C.A. Szarek chatted with her, but what Cindy had to say about where publishing and multi-media are headed was too interesting not to. She gave a great example of how two scifi authors have a great interactive website with readers to help create their novel with chats and forums and fanfiction. I went and checked it out and it is awesome.
After that, spent a few more hours brainstorming with my four inspiring critique partners, which is always a good time--just the creative energy rejuvenates me. I still need a name for the German S.S. Officer who is chasing my current hero and heroine. I'd like to go with a German translation for monster or dragon or creature or something like that. Anyone have any suggestions?
