Crispin has a title! Just finished the very last look through of Crispin's story. It now has a title: Untamed Rogue, Scandalous Mistress !! No due date is known of yet, but it's great to have a title.
I've loved hearing from UK readers about Peyton and I can hardly wait for Peyton's story to come out here in North America.

South Carolina Writers conference coming in October

Hi all,
If you're an aspiring writer this post is for you. The end of October, Myrtle Beach plays host to the South Carolina Writers Conference. What a beautiful setting and perfect opportunity. The conference is full of great sessions to help perfect the craft. It's a great time to connect in a more intimate setting with writers, authors, agents and editors. Scott Eagan, Pamela Ahearn and Jenny Bent (to name a few) will be in attendance to hear pitches and lead sessions.

I'll be there too leading critique sessions and offering classes in dialogue, point of view, and historical research.

I know for me that a conference like this one was just what I needed to get started on the road towards my publishing goals. I went to a critique session like the ones offered at this conference and it helped me sell my manuscript nine months later. Here's the link to check out what the conference offers:

Peyton is coming to North America and other news

Hi Readers,
Peyton's story is coming to North America in early 2010. That's great news. Also great news is that Jack and Dulci's story is off to Joanne. I sent it out today right on time. What's next for me is
1. Finishing Beldon and Lilya's story in proposal form by the end of August
2. Finishing The Carlton Club Caper for Avalon by the first of October.
3. Getting ready for the South Carolina Writer's conference in October.
I'll blog about that in another post! It's a really cool opportunity if you're looking for conferences.

Whew, summer is flying by.
