My name is Leisa Ashbaugh. I am from Seattle and am very much looking forward to the conference. My first. It came highly recommended by a friend who has published several books.
I will be in the weekend publishing workshop and the week long Creative Non-fiction. I am planning a bit of an odyssey for myself, leaving Seattle June 30 and wandering my way down to Taos by way of Moab & Sedona. I know, neither of those is on the way to Taos from Seattle, but I have my reasons. = ) If you're lucky, and I have any of the noteworthy adventures I am counting on, I may even share more about that here.
I am working on my first two books, and my goal is to have two solid book proposals complete with sample chapters to bring along with me to the conference.
I look forward to meeting you all there.
