Last night at the banquet of the Tennessee Mountain Writers' Annual Conference, I was presented with two awards. The first place in the category of Writing for Young People for my novel, The Zone of Fear, and second place in the same category for my Nikki Landry and theLegend of Ghost Dog Island (an excerpt is in a previous post). Needless to say, I am still in shock. Nikki would be jumping for joy!!! Now to get them published!
The conference was a wonderful three day event. I met some very talented writers, both published and pre-published, and made some new friends. The speakers were awesome. I got some valuable advice from Candie Moonshower in her presentation on plotting. Sam Venable was a hilarious speaker at the banquet. Overall, I was very impressed with TMW!
