Hi Folks!

Come listen to me, and three great ladies, speak at the Stonecrest Library this Saturday afternoon. I’ve detailed below the Who, What, Where, Why and When.

Don’t worry, attending the workshop is definitely in your budget, not matter what its size as… it’s FREE!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

SPEAKER/TOPIC: Connie Fleming: Walking on the Edge: Conflict in Children’s Writing
ABOUT CONNIE:
A former UCR Crime Analyst with Georgia Bureau of Investigation, she now spends her days, and nights writing, illustrating, and speaking at schools, libraries and churches. Into every life must come some conflict. And no story is complete without it. Learn how to insert the right amount of tension to move your story forward.
As a very health-conscious senior adult she also writes about wiping out obesity, with a healthy dose of her own brand of humor and Christian wisdom.
Her website is http://cmfleming.com/ and her weight-loss blog can be found at http://theacceptablesin.blogspot.com/

SPEAKER/TOPIC: Nancy Craddock: Warnings from a Self-Pubbed Author
If you’re thinking about self-publishing, you can save yourself a lot of angst (and money) from someone who did it all wrong!
ABOUT NANCY:
Feeling as if she’s always been peering over the top of an open book, Nancy is a keen observer of life. Each chapter of her own life has been centered around books, schools and libraries. As a child, Nancy’s happiest days were either playing “school” or “library” with a neighborhood friend. As an adult, she’s diligently worked to foster a life-long love of books in elementary students from Baton Rouge, LA and Houston, TX, to Atlanta, GA. Whether her students were a diverse group in a inner-city school, wealthy children of cattle barons or the sons and daughters of hard-working middle class parents in the suburbs, Nancy learned that shared laughter is always a unifying factor in any classroom and a humorous children’s book was never far from her reach.
Writing contests, magazine articles and hand-written notes, emails and long distant phone calls from editors will always be a thrill but Nancy is quick to say that she gauges her success by timid youngsters who’s whose eyes barely meet hers when they say “I like your book” at various book events. That is all the proof she needs to know her life has been, and continues to be, the most fabulous fairy tale she could ever imagine. Her website is www.nancycadlecraddock.com

SPEAKER/TOPIC: Lynn Coulter: Make Money By Writing Nonfiction
Even if your goal is to publish a novel, you can earn money writing nonfiction books and articles while you work on it. The Web, for example, consumes enormous amounts of information, and someone has to write that content. Why shouldn’t it be you? Learn how to break into print and digital publications for children and adults with freelancer and author Lynn Coulter.
ABOUT LYNN:
Lynn Coulter writes for HGTVGardens.com.

She’s also a freelancer with a B.A. in Journalism and the author of 3 books: Gardening with Heirloom Seeds; Mustard Seeds: Thoughts on the Nature of God and Faith (Publisher’s Weekly starred review); and Little Mercies: Celebrating God’s Everyday Grace and Goodness. Lynn has served as a contributing editor for Delta Sky and U.S. Airways Magazine, and she’s written for Ranger Rick, Southern Living, Jack and Jill, Delta’s Sky 4 Kids, Pockets, The Home Depot Garden Club, Southern Living, AAA Traveler and other publications. Currently she’s writing a novel for middle-grade readers with the help of her loyal office assistants/rescue dogs, Miss Paws and Molly. Her website is www.LynnCoulter.com.

TK Read works by day as an attorney and mediator. She’s the mother of three, and uses her young adults as background research for her books. In the wee hours of the morning before the rush of the day, she downs coffee and chocolate and writes young adult thrillers and middle grade fantasies. A life long student, she also signs up for just about every class she can fit in her schedule – that way when her kids are doing homework, she can work on her own. When she’s not writing, she’s reading all the fiction she can load onto her Kindle, running slowly for miles and miles, painting portraits, and messing around in the dark alleys and back streets of the Net. The next time your computer crashes while you’re watching a YouTube video, you might want to blame her.
With her sister, Kathleen Vrona, TK’s written 100 Small Fires To Make Your Book Sales Blaze. Using it as a resource she’ll be self-pubbing one of her middle grade novels. You can read about her efforts on this blog. To read more about TK’s other endeavors, check out www.tkread.com, or www.writersandwannabes.com.
