News and Notes
Hope you had a good weekend. The weather was lovely here in north central Kentucky. It was breezy with highs in the 70's, a fall preview, I'm thinking.
It's been a toasty summer, so the reprieve was welcome. How has the weather been in your neck of the woods?
Here are a few announcements to start the week:
Congratulations to Rhonda Schrock, winner of The Gifted by Ann Gabhart!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by to see Ann last week. It was a fun interview; Ann discussed the book cover process, among other things, so if you missed it, click here for details.
Before I knew Rhonda Schrock won the giveaway, I was going to mention that she has her spiffy new website up and running. It's very nice, and I am excited as she takes this next step in her writing journey. She's relocated her blog there too, so if you enjoy her witty and insightful posts, hop on over! Click here to check it out.
Got a short story? Writer's Digest Popular Fiction Awards is accepting entries. Grand Prize is $2500 and a trip to the WD conference in New York City. Deadline is September 14, 2012. Visit their site for details.
Don't forget, September brings more goodies here at Write Now, including a visit with authors Cathy Gohlke, Sarah Sundin, and Alex Cavanaugh. Lots happening through the fall - giveaways, guest posts, interviews, and more. Hope you can join me! :)
I've several projects that are calling my name so I am taking a blog break. See you on August 27.
What's on your plate for the balance of the month?
