A hearty thank you to the library and Laura Gardoski, the Children's Librarian, for arranging my presentation.
We had a wonderful exchange of ideas and some interesting discussions.
A couple days later, one participant called to tell me about another venue I may be interested in, and one of my beta-readers and Writers Group members dropped my name to a writers' conference organizer as a possible presenter.
So I'm branching out, slowly but surely. I'm ever so grateful for the chance to share what I've learned and to connect with readers.
