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.

Here's the flyer for the conference, too. If you can be in the Bay Area over President's Day weekend, it's going to be a great event for writers!

I'm going!  Will another other Book Country peeps be there?  I could use a friend to sit next to at lunch so I don't feel like too much of a social outcast.  tongueout

It was so great to meet Janice at SFWC this month!

 

If you also attended the conference, chime in below so that folks can find you. I know we've got a lot of new members from SFWC and I want us all to be able to connect on Book Country as well.
