In about ten days, I will be pitching my book at a conference for the first time. I've been an RWA member for a long time and attended quite a few conferences, but I have never felt the urge to make an editor or agent appointment.
Until now. And I'll admit -- I'm nervous. Not because I'm afraid they won't like my book, but because I'm afraid I will draw a complete blank and stare dumbly when they ask questions.
But I'm looking at this as a learning experience. I may fall flat on my face -- figuratively speaking. But that's okay if I do. It's not my last chance to get published.
