Starting this Thursday, February 12th, I’ll be representing Book Country at the San Francisco Writers Conference 2015. BC member Andrea Dunlop will be there as well, on behalf of Girl Friday Productions. I’m also hearing that other members are going to the conference.

Ask the Pros is divided into four 18-minute sessions. Pros will be seated at tables with their names in alphabetical order. Nine attendees at a time can go to tables they wish and take turns pitching a book or asking questions for two minutes. After you speak, we suggest you move on to the next pro you want to speak to. After 18 minutes, a bell will ring, indicating it’s time to change tables. You may not be able to meet with everyone you wish, so feel free to talk to them during the conference when they’re wearing badges.
