GCLS 2018, Las Vegas, July 4-8
There are many right ways to finish a novel. Over the years I’ve seen over and over that there’s only one wrong way: not to finish. Lucky me, every year I’ve been honored to moderate a panel of authors who tell us how they personally got it done. The light bulb went off and they took that idea and transformed it into a finished story.

The “So I Had This Idea” Panel is one of my favorite parts of my favorite conference of the year.

No two authors ever tell the same story. Even though the act of writing is similar, the process and results are as individual as fingerprints.

Past panelists have included Annette Mori, RG Emmanuelle, Rachel Gold, Jeanne “Barrett” Magill, Jessie Chandler, Erica Abbott, Mary Griggs, Shelley Thrasher, Beth Burnett, MB Panichi, Marie Castle, Jen Silver, Cindy Rizzo, Heather Blackmore, Alison Solomon, Cass Sellers, Kimberly Cooper Griffin, Mercedes Lewis and the late Sandra Moran. That’s not even close to the whole list!
