I will be at the BlogHer conference at the Westin St. Francis this July 18th-20th in San Francisco. Registration is closed, but if you are attending, my panel is on Saturday, July 19th and 3:15pm and is called “What We Do: Blog to Book Redux.” I’ll be speaking along with Ellen Gerstein from Wiley & Sons, literary agent Neeti Madan from Sterling Lord, and fellow blog-to-book author Rita Arens. You can also stop by the BlogHer bookstore right after the panel from 4:30pm-5:15pm where I’ll be signing books. You can buy a copy there or bring your own. (I won’t tell nobody.)
I will also be speaking at the inaugural Blog Indiana 2008 conference on Sunday, August 17th 2008. It’s being held in Indianapolis at IUPUI (my alma mater) in the swanky Campus Center, which they did not have when I went there, but my tuition money helped build. So, I’m looking forward to finally using the wi-fi I helped pay for.
My session is called “How to reach out to bloggers (without pissing them off)” which is about effective communication between marketing professionals and bloggers. I chose this topic as an excuse to scare the crowd with all the horrifyingly, bad press releases I’ve received over the years. *shivers* You can register for the conference with a 15% discount because I think you’re special.
I won’t directly be talking about my book at the Blog Indiana session, but it will be a nice opportunity to meet other Indiana bloggers. If you’re in the area, feel free to drop by and say hi or bring a copy of the book by for me to sign.
