Opening Session Speaker: Alex Lidell

Alex Lidell

Map Your Route to Success in Romance Writing

It is about the destination. What writing successes are you shooting for? Critical acclaim? Financial stability? The book of your heart out in the world? Many summits are worth climbing, but the waypoints en route differ greatly. Depending on where you are heading, you have different skills to master. Different risks to take. Different pitfalls to avoid. Join Alex Lidell as she discusses her travels and helps you map yours. Bring paper. Leave with a plan. Then put it into action this weekend at RWA.

Alex Lidell is the Amazon Breakout Novel Awards finalist author of The Cadet of Tildor (Penguin) and several Amazon Top 100 Kindle Bestsellers, including the Power of Five and Trident Rescue romance series. She is an avid horseback rider who believes in eating dessert first. Alex is easily bribed into a writing craft / writing business conversation with a lure of coffee and a quiet place to chat.

She writes as both Alex Lidell and A.L. Lidell.
