EVENT: Heidi Ruby Miller as Editor Guest at Pennwriters 2013

I am honored to be an editor guest at the 2013 Pennwriters Conference at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott May 17 - 19. If you've been waiting to submit your Science Fiction Adventure novel to Dog Star Books , I will be taking pitches on Friday afternoon. Our mother publisher, Raw Dog Screaming Press , will also be represented by Jennifer Barnes and John Edward Lawson at Pennwriters. Jennifer will be listening to pitches for RDSP's non-fiction imprint, Guide Dog Books , as well as appropriate fiction for the main line. John is interested in poetry collections and works of horror and dark fiction. As many of you know, RDSP, by necessity, has a closed submissions policy for all its imprints, but the editors are happy to hear about your potential projects face-to-face at any of our literary events. I am also presenting a workshop on Sunday titled "50 Ways to Beat Writer's Block ." RDSP author, Jason Jack Miller , is also an author guest and will present
