What better way to meet an agent?

So, you're looking for a literary agent. You e-mail queries. You send those snail-mail packets. You pitch at conferences. And you ask your writer friends for introductions to their agents.

But wait...I've got a better way!

Why not sign up for Team Parallel Heat's Breast Cancer Walk team and you'll get to spend THREE days with three members of the fabulous Knight Agency! And while you're schmoozing and networking with (did I mention THREE members) the ladies of TKA, you're also participating in a fantastic, worthy cause: raising money for breast cancer research.

The event in Atlanta, is a three-day fest of fun, fellowship and a feeling of satisfaction, knowing that your efforts will go to help millions of women who have been stricken with this disease.

As a cancer survivor myself, I am pleased to be participating with Deidre and TKA on Team Parallel Heat and I hope you'll join us!

(In case you want to sponsor me, any donation would be appreciated!! In September, I'll have a giveaway for someone who sponsors me -- don't you love teasers?)

Hey Marley!
This is an amazing cause. My father died from cancer, and my Aunt is a breast cancer survivor... unfortunately a tumor has recently come back. I'm a college student and would love to be a part of the Parallel Heat team. But is there a chance I could as a few questions off the boards? I.E. how to find cheap accommodation in Atlanta.

Hi Moira!

Definitely ask your questions. The best person to talk to would be our team "captain," Julie Ramsey. E-mail me at marley AT and I'll hook you up with Julie. We'd love to have you with us!

I would love to answer any question you got! There's an airline offering discount tickets for WALK and I'm sure we can find some nice and inexpensive digs for getting here, walking here, and just enjoying the experience!

Thanks Marley for the hook up! Marley, just knows everyone! ;-)

Moira!! Woo hoo! We would love to have you walk with us! And the best part? We are all camping together each night, so that covers your accomodations. I am not MS. Outdoorsy, but the thought of camping out with romance and writer ladies just makes me giggle. Imagine our stories??? :)
Email Julie at for details! Deidre

I wonder if you can auction your kids off on ebay for the weekend? I'm fairly sure that whoever won them would send them back on Monday LOL. What an awesome event. My daughter could come...she'd love it...but my boys would never last...:( Still...there's always spousal bribery to consider....
