Have you ever wanted to write for St. Martin's Press?

Are you tired of sending out submissions and

receiving that letter, "We don't accept unsolicited

manuscripts?" Or are you tired of reading it on

publisher websites?

There is a way around those dreaded words.

Speak to an editor personally

at the Desert Dreams Writers Conference

April 27-29, 2012 in Scottsdale, AZ.

Several editors, including Rose Hilliard with

St. Martin's Press, will be taking appointments.

You can tell her about your completed manuscript

and, if interested, she'll tell you to send the whole

or partial for her to read. This allows you to put

"Requested Material" on the envelope.

Rose Hilliard handles romance, women's fiction,

young adult, and humor. Before St. Martin's she

worked at both Time Warner Book Group and Penguin's

New American Library. She is also the editor for

Much Cheaper Than Therapy's own Caris Roane,

author of Ascension. Her series features winged,

warrior vampires.

So how do you get one of the limited,

highly coveted appointments with

Rose Hilliard?

Register for the Desert Dreams Conference.

Appointment slots are filled on a first

registered, first paid, basis.

Details are available at

I'll tell you about other editors and agents attending our

conference in the weeks to come.
