@Kat. The "Countdown to Publication" is a SheWrites series. Each Thursday I write a post that is featured on the site and in the weekly email that gets sent out. All the posts are on my SheWrites blog (visit my page) and on my blog at http://julijasukys.com. Only one is actually titled "Countdown to Publication," but they all address various aspects of writing and getting my forthcoming book (March 1, 2012) into readers' hands. A link to my latest post (today) appears below as a comment, and you can easily find last week's post under Top Content on the sidebar. It's called "In Praise of University Presses...." Enjoy and share any thoughts or queries you have.

This is Who-Man. My son and I invented him over breakfast this morning. He's a superhero who uses confusion to defeat his enemies. "Whaaaat?" you may well ask. Come read my new "Countdown to Publication" blog post called "This is Who-man: On Writing, Play, and Fun" at http://julijsukys.com. All will be clear.

Julija: Sorry, I don't know about your Countdown. Where do I find your column? Sounds intriguing; would like to check it out.

A teenage milestone: driving lessons.  I wrote about the beginning of this journey for me and my 15 year old:

As many of you know, I've been writing a weekly "Countdown to Publication" column here on SheWrites. So far I've written about marketing, how long a book should take to write, and finding grants and publishers. If you have questions or topics you'd like me to explore in the column, please send them my way. My book is a biography of sorts (with memoir-y bits, including a section about the birth of my son and the task of balancing mothering with writing) and it comes out officially on March 1.

Kat: Thank you!

Farzana: Thanks for the comments. I agree the subtitle is overlong, but including all the influences (heavy metal, violent video games, the occult, goth culture, etc) would make it longer. There's no great summary. Anyhow, it's a working title and I'll be open to suggestions when it comes to that. 

Meagan: I'd love to go to some agent-centric expos, but traveling is a pain right now as I've got a nursing little one, so essentially we'd all have to go. There was a "meet the agents" event here in SF last summer, but it was agents I'd already networked with, so I didn't pay the fee. :) I'm planning to go to some events with another writers group here in the city soon. 

Comment by Meagan Frank on January 17, 2012 at 10:00am

Beth, I wish you luck with the agent-finding. I didn't pursue that path with my first book, but I am seriously considering it for my second. Have you investigated any writer's workshops or expos where the agents, the writers and the publishers all gather in one place? That's what I'm hoping to do. I know there are some big ones in  big cities like NY, Chicago and I have my eye on one in San Diego. I'm a non-fiction writer too, and I would love any insight people have about what are some of the best writer's workshops people have attended. I would imagine it is a bit of an investment, and I'm not making enough money (yet) to go to all of them. Anyone out there recommend a good workshop?   MMF
