Coming Attractions



HAPPY NEW YEAR!


It's 2012, can you believe it?

I'm excited about Write Now's upcoming events!

What kind of events, you ask? How about interviews, giveaways and
other goodies? Here's a peek:

Christy Award winning author Cathy Gohlke will be stopping by in February to discuss 
Promise Me This, which brings readers aboard the Titantic and onto the shores of
New Jersey, not far from where I grew up.

Another of my favorite authors, Ann Gabhart, will visit as well. Her latest book,  
Words Spoken True, debuts in February, and we'll get the scoop on this
historical gem set in Louisville, KY in 1855.

Good friend and writer Carol Alexander drops in to share her experience on writing an
ebook. Carol is also a homeschool and homesteading expert, so I expect that we'll glean much from her words of wisdom.

I'm also excited about Jeanette Levellie's book, Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top,
which is being released in April. Jen will be hopping over for a visit to explain
how we can get chuckles on top of grace every day.

March marks my third blogoversary, so of course, we must celebrate with a 
chocolate giveaway, don't you think?

That is just a portion of what's on the horizon for this year. Stay tuned, it's going to be a good year!

What are you looking forward to?

Wishing you the best in 2012,

Karen

  16. I'm looking forward to 2012 being a 'sophomore' year, not as many beginnings or endings. We lived in Louisville, KY for 5 years in the 90's. I'll watch for Ann Gabhart's book.

  24. Did you have as an exciting new year as I did? Watching the ball drop on TV and saying my happy new years and then heading off to lullaby land? Too much for me, I tell ya. :-)

    I'm looking forward to getting my foot in the publishing door? *sigh*

    *deep sigh*

    I think you have a great lineup, amigo. Cannot wait to read about Jen Levellie's book.

    Smooch! (((hugs)))

  30. Your energy is contagious, Karen. I'm raring to go. Leaving on the plane tomorrow for Winnipeg. I'm doing a book reading on Friday, then Wednesday I fly to Fredericton, NB to meet more writers and to hug my new baby grandson. I have so much to do I better stop talking and get cracking. Talk to you soon.
