Well, I bit the bullet. Registration opened up for the ANWA convention and I signed up! I am so excited. It is going to be a whopping $750 to cover the whole trip but I feel like it will be so worth it.
I also signed up to pitch my book. Just typing that last sentence makes me all nervous and tingly inside. I keep thinking how many tons of people are going to be there doing the same exact thing and how possibly out of all those pitches could they think my book would be one to choose?
I have to stop myself, though, because no matter what, this is a chance of a lifetime for me. I can gather some really valuable information for this convention that can only help me, and if Kirk Shaw (editor over at Covenant) loves my book, that I happen to think is awesome, then that will be even better.
So Arizona, get ready because here I come!
