I attended the first Women Read/Women Write event in Pittsburgh celebrating the books women love to read. There were a vast panel of authors ranging from literary novelists, women's fiction, mystery and of course my personal favorite--romance!
Many authors shared their personal journeys about dredging through the publishing world and were very open and honest about how difficult this business can be. Between query letters, submissions, rejection letters, agents, publishers, marketing, no subject was left unturned. It was a meeting of the minds like no other.
The event would not have been complete without New York Times Bestselling Author Gaelen Foley.
Gaelen's new release, My Ruthless Prince, just hit the New York Times Bestseller list after one week! These ladies are indeed an inspiration to all.
I also had the privilege of meeting RITA® Award winner Gwen Cready.
