Wow, it's amazing how busy we've been over the last few months! We started 2019 at a sprint and haven't slowed down since. As a result, we've communicated a lot less than we normally do, so I wanted to say hi and let you know what we've been up to.
In February we returned to the San Francisco Writers Conference, which was fantastic. Andrew lives there, so it's a great chance for us to connect and chat about BetaBooks in person and to meet and talk to a ton of authors. Andrew's wife, Pam, and I share a birthday, and it overlapped with my visit, so we had tons of fun celebrating together. THEN early Friday morning before the conference really got going Andrew and Pam welcomed their third child. Luckily our friend Burton had joined me to help so I wasn't all alone. I had the opportunity to moderate a great panel discussion about digital formatting which I really enjoyed. Overall it was a fantastic time.
BetaBooks was also invited to speak at the first New England Speculative Writers conference in Portland, Maine. I love being a part of new things, especially when the organizers are so passionate about helping authors reach their goals. It was a great one-day event. They gave me a full hour and fifteen minutes to talk, so I expanded
We are always working to improve
