Winner and WIFYR

So I'm at WIFYR all this week. What is WIFYR you ask? It's the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Conference in Utah and it rocks. It is where I met my entire critique group last year and I'm back...workshopping my novel, hanging with my CP's, and rubbing shoulders with agents, editors, and authors. Next week I'll share all my newfound knowledge. Until then, let's announce the winner of Elana Johnson's Surrender...

Congratulations Robin! You've won!

And I promise I didn't cheat. Even though she's my crit partner, she really did win from the random generator. A new book is coming your way, Robin. But no worries, because I'll be giving away another book next week from one of the WIFYR conference writers. See you then.

Ooo, have fun at the conference!!! Can't wait to learn all the wonderful things you can teach me :)

Kathryn Purdie said...

Haha...when I first read through this I thought you said you were "worshipping your novel" at WIFYR. Well, you should be because it's FABULOUS! See you at WIFYR tomorrow. :-) And congrats to Robin for winning the book!

No, Katie, Ilima doesn't worship her book, I worship Ilima's book

Nick Wilford said...

Congrats to Robin!

There are a whole lot of writing conferences in Utah. Lucky thing. I want to take a big road trip and get to one someday!

Oh man, so jealous. I dream of the day when I get to hang out with all my crit partners. (Might be hard, one of them lives in NZ.)

Have fun and congrats Robin.

Congratulations, Robin!

Have fun at the conference... and tell us all about it later!

Kelley-Thanks! It's amazing how much I've learned already.

Katie-Haha. I'm not that arrogant. :)

Taryn-You can worship my book any time. I'll allow it. :)

Nick-I know, right? When did Utah become such a writing hub?

Jenny-I want to go to NZ soooo bad. If you guys ever get together and it's in NZ, I just might declare myself an honorary CP and crash the party. :)

T. Drecker-I will for sure! Thanks for stopping by.
