Agent Quest Part 2

I am actually not writing this today. I’m writing it in advance because I am away at another writing event—the Oregon Christian Writers Conference.

This is a conference I have attended for several years now. It’s four days and three nights, with mornings devoted to a single two and a half hour coaching class, and afternoons passed in workshops. I’m really looking forward to my coaching class. It focuses on developing believable characters.

I will be pitching agents here as well, and I have an appointment set up for mentoring with Jeff Gerke of Marcher Lord Press, who has worked in a variety of publishing houses and now specializes in speculative fiction. I am eager to talk to him about what I have done—retold folktales, written a middle grade fantasy novel, written a young adult, (or is it adult—as has been suggested by an agent from Willamette Writers) retelling of  medieval romance, drafted its sequels, and drafted a fantasy novel, and what I look forward to doing–drafting another fantasy novel during NaNoWriMo this November. I have found him to be an excellent writing instructor during past conferences and so look forward to hearing what he has to say.

So, read and write on all you readers and writers out there. I shall be sure to report on my experience next week.

  1. Hello Debby,

    My name is Catherine, I’ve been reading your blog, I’m impressed by its quality and nice and clean presentation, also by the way you write , I enjoyed your interesting stories and your world here a lot.

    That is why I would love to add your blog in the blog directory that I admin. It’s a high web traffic, Page Rank 5 blog directory named Blogdire,, it’s visit count grows exponentially every day and has high quality gained by listing great blogs like yours, because it does not have advertisement nor pop-ups.

    Having your blog listed in my directory, will definitely improve it’s page rank in search engines, (like Google), and you will have many visits to leave nice comments and feedback, and of course, more people to enjoy your blog and share your interests.

    In exchange of becoming part of the directory, all I ask is a simple link to my site, I can assure you, the operation is extremely simple and there is no money involved.

    Let me know if you are interested and what you think.

    Kind regards,



    1. Hi Cathy,

      I’m sorry its taken me so long to reply; I’ve been out of town and am only now starting to get caught up.

      I am so honored you would like to include me in your directory. I checked out some of the blogs you list and was impressed with the quality. Please let me know how to complete this process. (I don’t have a blogroll yet, but have been meaning to start one. Looks like this is the perfect time to do so!)

      Thanks again!
