My Adventure at BookCon 2017

I know it’s been over a year since I last posted a blog entry. A lot of good things have happened since then: I have a new position working for the federal government in D.C. as a Technical Writer-Editor. This fall, I should begin my Master’s program in Publishing at George Washington University. Needless to say, I’ve been busy.

I’ll admit I let blogging fall to the waist side for several reasons:

1.) I thought it was a waste of time (like who is reading my blog anyway?).

2.) The time I spend blogging, I can spend writing fiction.

3.) I won’t expand my readership through blogging.

But I’ve been rejuvenated since my trip to BookCon on Saturday, June 3 at Javits Center in the Big Apple. I learned so much. My main reason for attending BookCon was to attend IngramSpark and BookLife’s “Indie Author 101” panel. I had an opportunity to get much needed advice regarding how to become a successful, business-minded writer. I became so inspired that I thought it would be imperative to start blogging back again.
