I know I've already done something like this, but this time I just can't help myself; here's another "Word of Mouth" promotion.

Have you checked out what's being offered at this year's LDStorymakers conference? If not, you've got to do so! I am totally amazed! When I first saw it, all I could say was "Wow!" This time, not only do we get to attend classes given by LDStorymakers authors, but we'll also hear from Brandon Sanderson, popular science-fiction author who was recently hired to finish Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series; Lisa Mangum, Aquisitions Editor at Deseret Book; and Tim Travaglini, Senior Editor at Putnam. The conference also offers one-on-one manuscript reviews/pitches with three editors and an agent. How can you pass this up?

I hope you don't.

And I also hope this blog has helped you recognize something more about the power of "Word of Mouth."

I found my publisher, or at least the publisher I used to have at the very first LDS Storymakers Writers Conference. It's definitely worth going.

Hi Rhonda! Thanks for finding my blog and leaving your "tree" joke! Nice to find your page too - I'll add it to my bookmarks!

I'm crossing my fingers I can attend the conference this year. Still no firm travel plans though!

Whoops! I spelled your name wrong. My apologies! NO "H"! I'll remember that now. :)

Hi Ronda - thanks for the info. I'm going to check it out. I've been doing SCBWI for 10 years and other local conferences, but I've never been to an LDS conference, although I've heard that the week long BYU Children's Writing workshop is excellent.
Congrats on all your publications, too! It's nice to *meet* you!

The LDStorymaker conference has been dubbed the best conference west of the Mississippi, and people who go to conferences frequently have said that it's the best one they've ever attended. I got to help start it up and have been so excited to see it grow every year. It is truly worth the time, the money, the travel, to be there.
