Hello all,

I started a blog to go with the forum. You can find it at http://profwritersconnect.blogspot.com/. I am adding articles to it slowly and will add a blog roll and other fun things as time permits.

If you would like to be featured at the blog, please let me know. Articles about writing craft, time management, goal setting, and other topics of interest to writers will be welcome.

Thanks.

Cheryl

Hello all,

I am working on building up a new blog I started to correspond with this forum. In May I would like to run a special feature on first book stories. I am looking for short articles (300-500 words) that talk about your first book: where the idea came from, who released it, and your experience of going from an aspiring author to a published author.

Please email your submission to cg20pm00(at)gmail(dot)com. Those are zeros, not Os. Also include:

a jpg of the cover art for your first book
an author photo in jpeg format
a short author's bio written in third person that includes links to your website and/or blog.
Submissions can be sent as a Word .doc or .docx file or copied and pasted into the body of an email. Please use "First Book Stories" for the subject line.

Thanks.

Cheryl
