Pencils being sharpened, suitcases being packed, throats being cleared...

Are you ready?

There are still a few openings left, so if you want to come for a day or the weekend, don't delay -- you can attend the whole weekend for as little as $399.

More than 60 speakers are presenting more than 70 workshops, panels and special events. Questions will be answered. Techniques will be learned. Contests will be won. Auctions will be bid upon. Deals will be made. Books will be sold.

Aliens will be spotted.

More than 150 people have signed up for our Master Classes alone this year -- come join the fun! Classes are $99 if you are registered for the conference and $119 if you are not. Come join the fun at the Vancouver Sheraton Guildford Hotel in Surrey this weekend. We take over the hotel and a guaranteed good time will be had by all.

Young writers are welcomed on Friday, including lunch, for a cost of $50. A great way to spend a Pro-D day!

This year I'll be tweeting the conference, too, so even the little blue bird is getting in on the action.
Follow along at @kcdyer and @siwc2009.

See you very soon!
