ALL-DAY SPEAKER:                   VICKY DREILING
Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble.” Vicky’s debut historical romance HOW TO MARRY A DUKE made the American Library Association’s Top 10 Romances for 2011.

MORNING SESSION:                “How to be a Happy Hooker”

What do editors mean when they say they want fresh and different? The answer might surprise you. Vicky Dreiling will show how to reinvent classic romance characters and tropes to create unique, high concept stories. In addition, Vicky will present high concept summaries for bestselling novels and share a paranormal high concept she made up just for fun. Lean how to turn the ordinary upside down and wow agents, editors, and readers. Vicky will also share information about positioning your novels to make them stand out in the crowd.
AFTERNOON SESSION: “Practical Social Media and Unmarketing Strategies”

Vicky Dreiling spent 10 years in corporate marketing and uses that knowledge to guide her social media efforts. The workshop will show the relationships between traditional marketing and unmarketing in relation to social media. This hands-on presentation will demonstrate various social media sites, relate their purposes, and discuss Dos and Don’ts. In addition, Vicky will present market research statistics on business and consumer usage of social media, including usage by generation. She will share how her social media strategy ties into her brand and how it helps her gain traction with readers, bloggers, and her publisher. By the end of the presentation, authors will understand how social media can be a fun way to connect and build relationships that can aid writers at any stage of their career.
Online Class: Note, there will not be a class in December.

“New Year, New You”
with
LAURIE SCHNEBLY CAMPBELL
Whether it’s the first rejection, the 50th-book slump, or just not getting the story you want, frustration is part of every writer’s life. For some, it’s a nuisance; for others, it’s the end of a career.
For anyone determined to make 2013 a Better Writing Year, this class offers both practical and psychological techniques for dealing with rejection, writer’s block, frustration, motivation, and other issues that keep writers from loving their craft.
Writers finish with new awareness of what WORKS for them, and with renewed inspiration for returning to the craft they love.
