    Fabulous session. You are goood, and your panelists weren’t bad either. I’ve recently read “The Plot Thickens” and i’m halfway through “The First Five Pages”. I’m trying to read everything I can to teach myself about writing and agenting – any suggestions?

    The session inspires me to get to work on my part of our upcoming session in Las Vegas.

    Best wishes,
