Friday is still fabulous in case your wondering….
First things first, I have some exciting news and upcoming events:
In two weeks, I’m hitting the road to help out at an author event in St. Louis called, “Wine, Wit, & Lit.”
*In honor of this event, I will be hosting a MASSIVE CONTEST. I’ll interview 6 authors and host a TEN book giveaway! Stay tuned for more details.
For the event, 8 area authors will personally chat with each table, giving everyone a chance to ask them questions. In addition, they’ve got a wine sommelier coming with wine to sample from area vineyards, door prizes, appetizers, and goodie bags for everyone.
Yours truly has been working hard on adding exclusive The Write Stuff goodies to the bags including bookmarks!
The event will feature authors: Marilyn Brant (Friday Mornings at Nine), Jody Feldman (The Seventh Level), Angie Fox (A Tale of Two Demon Slayers), Jennifer Gauvain & Anne Milford (How Not to Marry the Wrong Guy), Susan McBride (The Cougar Club), Sharon Shinn (Gateway), and Bobbi Smith (Captive Pride).
All of this to benefit Casting for Recovery, a nonprofit post-treatment program for breast cancer survivors.
If you are interested or know someone in the St. Louis area, the event is October 3rd. To reserve a space in advance it’s $10 or $15 at the door. To reserve your spot, contact author Susan McBride via email (TheCougarClub at aol dot com).
That being said:
Next week, I’ll be tackling writing up a query letter despite the deep seeded fear that surrounds it!
Today another article from my Betty Fan Blog, Chocolate Covered Chick Thoughts, is being featured on the main Betty Confidential website! It examines the sticky topic of what would someone do if they ever caught a cheater? Check it out it’s called, “Carrie Underwood’s Plan of Attack.”
*If you haven’t left a comment to win TWO of Susanne Dunlap’s novels, The Musician’s Daughter and Anastasia’s Secret you’ll have until Sunday (September 19) to do so! I’ll pick the winner randomly Monday.
