Fall on the Blog

The leaves are turning, the spicy smell of pumpkin-flavored coffee is in the air, and I’ve finally moved the sweaters to the front of my closet. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. And this fall, I’ll experience it in eight different states!

Let’s just say that I have a pretty intense travel schedule coming up, starting this weekend. The good news is, all my travel will be for conferences or for pleasure with friends and family. As you know, I adore going to conferences, traveling, and meeting people! The not-so-good news, though, is that I’m going to be very busy.

For a complete list of my conference schedule, visit my Events page. I’ll be visiting Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida, and South Dakota to meet new writers and give talks. Mixed in with all that, I’m going to Boston and New Orleans (twice!) with friends and family, then back home to California for Thanksgiving and Big Sur. I’m on the road every single weekend through the first weekend of December.

I love traveling, don’t get me wrong, but it’s a huge time vacuum. Running to and from the airport, flying, speaking, doing critique, and still keeping up with, you know, my job and my clients…I tucker myself out just thinking about it! As a result, I’ll be easing up on the blog a little bit.

It’s still my goal to post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but I’ll also be featuring some guest posts throughout the fall. I’ll also share a bit more about my travels. You know I don’t usually like to post about me and my life that much, but I’m really excited to feature write-ups of the conferences I’m participating in. So expect to hear a little bit about the conferences, the questions asked, the things I learn, and anything else that catches my eye. People love to live vicariously, so I really want to give you more of an in-depth peek into these events from an agent’s perspective.

I hope you’ll still continue to read and Tweet and comment and email me. I love hearing from you all. And I hope you’ll forgive me if I have to miss a day here or there. I know it’s going to be a crazy yet exciting fall. Stick around!

    That sounds like a lot of fun but hard work. Make sure you take time to enjoy yourself on all your travels. The Monday Wednesday Friday blog schedule sounds perfect.

    By the way, was it you that put me onto ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver? I can’t remember where I heard about it. But I am LOVING it. What a writer!

    I love how pumpkin flavored coffee has become a staple of fall. Does anybody remember the dark ages before pumpkin flavored coffee?

    Sounds great–I got all excited when I heard New Orleans b/c that is where I am from and go back frequently but didn’t see that listed in events. Are you doing an event there?
