ALL-DAY Guest Speaker–Kimberly Kincaid

Crafting Your Novel From the Ground Up: There are lots of moving parts to a successful story. In this 90-minute intensive workshop, we’ll discuss how to create and balance three-dimensional characters, well-paced plotlines, and compelling conflicts that will have readers begging for more.

Marketing Like A Boss: Street teams, newsletters, social media, in-person events…it’s enough to overwhelm even the savviest of authors! In this two-hour workshop, we’ll roll up our sleeves and take an in-depth look at how to get the most bang for your marketing buck across multiple platforms, regardless of whether you’re just starting out or you’re a veteran author.

Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet and hot and edgy romantic suspense. When she’s not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as “The Pleather Bomber”, she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a USA Today best-selling author, a two-time RWA RITA® finalist, and a Bookseller’s Best nominee who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. She also runs an editing and author-coaching business that provides personalized career guidance for fellow and aspiring authors. Kimberly resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
