Judy Duarte presents: “JUGGLING: The fine art of writing two different genres for two different editors and two different houses.”
Multi-published, award winning author Judy Duarte shares her story of juggling a category career and a new single title career—how she got there and all it entails. She’ll define the differences between category and single title–from money to voice, from promotion to deadlines–and how it feels to handle two editors and two houses and still love what she writes. Whether it’s juggling or keeping all the plates spinning, the techniques and tips she’ll share will get you thinking beyond a “work in progress” to a “career in progress.”
Judy Duarte always knew there was a book inside her, but since English was her least favorite subject in school, she never considered herself a writer. An avid reader who enjoys a happy ending, Judy couldn’t shake her dream of creating a story of her own. So in 1996, she joined RWA and decided to make that dream come true.
Her unpublished stories have not only won the Emily and Orange Rose, but made her a double Golden Heart finalist in 2001. COWBOY COURAGE, her first book, hit the shelves in March of 2002. Since then she has sold twenty-five more books, including two women’s fiction novels to Kensington, the first of which, MULBERRY PARK, will be released in April of 2008.
