Operation Awesome New Year's Revision Conference

I've been away for a while due to unforeseen circumstances, but the New Year will bring a fresh blog start for me. And, to help end 2012 on a high note, I wanted to start by spreading some fabulous 2013 news of an event happening over on Operation Awesome. It's time to spread the word about the Operation Awesome online writers conference, and what better way than with a giveaway!
Enter using the rafflecopter form below.

New Year's Revisions Conference 2013

January 4, 5, and 6 

This conference is totally free, totally online. 

You may have written your book as part of NaNoWriMo in November. You could have been working on yours longer. Or maybe you've got a book baby sat in a drawer that you think may just need a little more TLC. And what comes along with that? Revisions. But you don't need to go it alone. Operation Awesome have gathered a group of book lovers: the ones who write the books, the ones who represent the authors, and the ones who edit the books. They all want you to succeed in making your book as shiny as it can possibly be before you query/publish.

That's the focus of NYRC 2013.

This is the place to be if you love books, write books, want to write, or just want to hang out and read awesome tips and advice to keep in your writing tip vault. Operation Awesome. There'll also be a critique partner matching service for those looking for a second pair of eyes.

We'll be live-tweeting the events @OpAwesome6 and using the #NYRC hash tag. Hope you'll join us!

A quick recap. The NYRC will have: 

  • Professional publishing advice from our panel of experts
  • Guest posts by literary agents, editors, and published authors - all with an eye toward helping you through the revision process
  • Book giveaways.
  • Critique partner matching service (January 3, the day before the conference officially begins)

Hey Lindsay! Good to hear from you.
My revisions are good - my third book is now with my publisher.

YOU'RE BACK!!!! *tackle hugs*

My revisions, as you know, are going painfully slow, but good. After the holidays, I intend to kick things into high gear!
