This week’s question is probably from an aspiring writer who asks, “Where could I meet with Bethany House’s acquisition editors? Which conferences will they be attending?”
This year, Bethany House editors are only going to be at the ACFW conference. Usually they’re at a few others, but if you’re planning to talk to Dave Long or Raela Schoenherr in 2016, you’ll need to do it there. (For more on what BHP acquisition editors are looking for, there are some detailed and helpful tips here and here.)
I (Amy Green, fiction publicist) will be at Taylor University’s Professional Writing Conference, explaining how to get published by going through examples of proposals from debut authors who received a contract with Bethany House. Since I’m not an editor, I won’t be taking pitch appointments, but I’d be more than happy to look at proposals and give the “inside scoop” on dos and don’ts. The conference is still taking registrations for a limited time, so it would be fun to see you there!
This week’s post is short because I’m spending my time getting ready for our BHP Book Banter over on Facebook! I’d love it if you’re able to join in the fun. You can find out more about that event here.
See you soon!
