If a gathering of horses is a herd, a gathering of fish is a school, a gathering of wolves is a pack, and a gathering of crows is a murder, what is a gathering of novelists called?
I'm traveling most of next week, heading to Colorado to visit my publisher for an author retreat. I'll meet with my editor (I have done briefly, some years before she became my editor), and tour the publishing offices.
As part of that, we'll meet the design team (and other teams, too, which are all a part of getting a book into the hands of readers, but the design team is sort of my Olympic Dream Team... just can't get this fine arts major to stop geeking out over the whole process and end result of cover design).
There will be an expert in the field to talk to us about marketing and social media.
Six other authors, none of whom I've yet met in person, will be attending. This is a big part of the excitement for me, getting to meet them!
And I'm sure there will be lovely food.
I'll take pics as I can and look forward to sharing here on the blog when I get back.
