Longhorns, Cowboys & Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 28th to May 1st, the publishers, editors, authors and friends of The Wild Rose Press gathered at the Silver Spur Ranch www.silverspur-ranch.com in Bandera, TX for TWRP's first Writer's Conference. The staff was friendly and attentive (and kept the jar filled with chocolate chip cookies).

The retreat provided the right mix of workshops and field trips (including a visit to the Bandera Gun Club and the local rodeo). The keynote speaker, Jo-Ann Power http://www.jo-annpower.com/ shared her expertise on author promotion.

The conference brought together writers from British Columbia to New Hampshire and it was a wonderful experience. Kudos to Rhonda Penders & RJ Morris!

  1. What a great combo! Well maybe not the longhorns. :) Sounds like a wonderful retreat.

  2. Would you believe longhorns are kept solely as pets? I can't imagine having a pet that weighs more than my car! It was fantastic to meet Rhonda, RJ and some of my fellow roses in person. The retreat was such a success they'e planning one for next year, so watch the TWRP loop for details.
