Just checking in while I have a few minutes of downtime here at the conference. I've already learned some good info. Bob Mayer is a really informative guy and a personable fellow, though I gotta admit I was worried at first. He seemed a bit quiet when I first met him, but that is probably because he'd started the day at 4 AM and had taken a car, ferry, shuttle bus, and place to arrive late afternoon at Rick Husband International Airport here in Amarillo.
It's called an international airport, but I'm pretty sure the term International is only applicable because they serve French fries in the cafe. Ninety-five percent of all incoming and outgoing flights go to or come from Dallas.
Anyway like I said Bob seemed a bit quiet, but anyone who knows me realizes I'm gonna flap my soup coolers regardless, so either Bob is one of those guys that takes a bit to crank up, or he got sick of hearing me spout useless facts about Amarillo and decided, I better talk or this guy will never shut up. Then again there is the off chance he wanted to speak more earlier and couldn't get a word in, but it ain't everyday I get to hang with a former Green Beret whose published 38 books. After only one session I can already tell you he's also a great teacher.
Check out his online store where you can order a copy of his book, The Novel Writers Toolkit.
I've been lax in adding names to me new blog roll so today I'm going to add author Erica Orloff. Erica does a great job of correlating everyday life and experiences to the writing world. She is also a published author of several books in a variety of genres. Click here to find several listed on Amazon. Or you can check out the bibliography on her website here.
In the wrods of Tigger ... Ta Ta for now.
