The ACFW conference is just around the corner. For those of you who are panicking, ahem, I mean preparing for it, are you ready?
In the words of Ginger and Bunty from “Chicken Run”
Ginger: Ladies, please. Let’s not lose our heads.
Bunty: Lose our heads? Aaaahh!
I’m not going to tell you what to bring, or what not to bring… These people already do a fabulous job of that.
Instead I’m going to post some helpful links for One Sheets, Synopsis’s, and Marketing Plans.
I’m not an expert… but I can direct you to places that I’ve found useful, as have a lot of other people.
Kaye Dacus is the current Go-To girl for some great examples of a One Sheet.
Suzanne Harman has some great links, as well as a lovely One Sheet herself on her blog.
Agent, Rachelle Gardner has this to say about One Sheets.
Camy Tang has a worksheet on how to write a synopsis. It’s $5 and WELL worth it. I’ve used it and found it helpful, as have many other authors-both published and unpublished alike.
This was harder to research, and each agent/editor wants something a little different. My suggestion… check out each individual agent/editor’s site and see what their requirements are.
Rachelle Gardner has a blog post about these.
Together, we can help each other.
I’m sure there are many, many other blogs and websites out there that I haven’t had the good fortune to stumble upon. Here is just a sampling. I hope you find it palatable.
