My next newsletter is going to feature a list of upcoming author conferences. While compiling the list from my notes, it belatedly occurred to me that I should probably post this on the blog as well.
Here are 20 22 author conferences being held this year, nine of the conferences will be held online. The list is ordered by month but not day, so you should double check your dates before finalizing your schedule.
