Last month I blogged about how it was almost time for the Romance Writers of America National Conference. This month, at PAW, weâ€™re all going to discuss what we learned there.
Unfortunately, I was too busy with meetings to attend many workshops, so Iâ€™ll have to try to listen to the recorded ones on CD that I particularly wanted to hear. My own panel on Writing a Series Youâ€™re Passionate About went great!
But of the workshops, the Published Author Network (PAN) retreat programs, and other events I was able to attend, one thing was made abundantly clear: all of us, even major publishers, are accepting the wave of the future. E-books, and e-versions of print books, are only going to get bigger.
I get it. I still like to hold a real book in my hands and be able to turn the pages. But I also have a Kindle and enjoy its convenience and portability, too. I recognize reality, so Iâ€™ll try to adapt as much as I need to both in my writing and reading.
How about you–were you there? What were you particularly interested to learn?
