Of course I went to browse about this conference, I wanted to know what it was about and who spoke on it. I think the most probable candidate is Jay Hartman, of Untreed Reads: he is indead both a Rainbow Awards judge than a publisher of a short story I read, so maybe his judgment is biased ;-) but he spoke about me in a conference sponsored by the San Francisco Writers University (http://www.allaboutebooks.us/), I think that is a big compliment, thank you Jay.
