I went to the conference to talk to agents and ask questions about marketing. I also wanted their thoughts on the characters in my series. I was pleasantly surprised when a couple of them asked questions about my book, the plot, backstory, and characters. One said it sounded interesting, even though I had only 30 pages done.
What a wonderful bonus! I'm ready to get back to writing!
Another agent told me some things I need to fix. She was very polite and showed me a couple of areas that stood out to her.
I must say I feel positive about my first experience to the ACFW conference.
Thank you to all the agents, editors, and mentors for the hours they spent listening to our pitches!
Thank you to the ACFW board and volunteers who made this a wonderful and educational time!
Now it’s your turn. What were your experiences at the conference? What one thing did you learn that made the trip well worth the time and money?
