The women behind First Draught are thrilled that RWA Nationals is almost here! We had a fantastic time talking to Katie Dunneback (@younglibrarian) talking about what first timers can expect when they head to the big conference. We covered common questions, planning workshops, hitting signings, social life, and also staying healthy throughout a really busy few days.

Alexis and Mary Chris and our sometimes guest Anne L. Parks will be hosting the Surviving Self-Publishing When the Success Is Slow to Come workshop at RWA on Saturday from 3:15-4:15 PM. They’d love to see you there! Here’s a quick description of the workshop.
You did what you were supposed to: you wrote a novel, had it edited, polished it to a shiny gleam, added a fabulous cover, and hit publish. But the readers and money didn’t come. Three indie authors talk about managing your expectations and persevering to write the next book. Get strategies for staying positive and celebrating little wins in a publishing landscape where there is no magic formula for success.
Alexis and Julia both have serials releasing this month. You can click on the cover images to learn more about these books!
