Our Success Stories

I met my agent Margaret Bail in the lobby at DFWCon 2014. Coincidentally, I’d also signed up for her query critique session later that day. As you can imagine, I paid extra-close attention to her comments! Margaret ultimately offered representation, and I’m thrilled the say the whole arrangement happened because of DFWCon.

My agent (Jennie Goloboy) and I are an unstoppable crime-fighting duo – and DFWcon is the Justice League that brought us together.

Three years ago, I attended my first DFWCon. I didn’t know anything except that I wrote a novel and I wanted to sell it. One year later, I met Michelle Johnson. A chance conversation later about something I wrote for my daughters and I was offered representation for a story I never considered pitching. Sometimes, it really is about being at the right place at the right time. For me, the right place will always be DFWCon.

I credit DFWCon as one of the major factors that lead to my publication. When I first attended at 18, I had no idea what the publishing industry was all about. In one weekend, I met my future agent (Louise Fury), learned all about the ins and outs of traditional and indie publishing, and learned that it was possible to reach my goals.
