I just got back from Digital Book World, which directly followed Writer’s Digest Conference (photo recap here) at the Sheraton in New York City.

The hottest commodity in the venue: electrical outlets:
The hands of Porter Anderson who tirelessly covered the event via Twitter. These are the tools of the modern reporter: screens, plugs, and of course: COFFEE!
I really enjoyed the event. You can find in-depth recaps here:
- Porter Anderson’s recap in his weekly column “Writing on the Ether” for JaneFriedman.com
- Shelf Awareness coverage, which includes a nice mention of my workshop. Thanks Ron Hogan!
Thanks so much to F+W Media for putting on such a great event!
