Anyone open to a coffee or meet up tonight at the Sheraton or tomorrow morning for breakfast?

As a new member ( from Canada) of this amazing WATCOM writers and publishers group, I have not yet met people, and am feeling a bit shy to go into the Chanticleer conference tomorrow. I have not been to the conference before either.

If you are interested, please message me. Thanks so much.

We won! I am so excited I have to crow about it. (The Chanticleer Book Review people are going to boo me off the stage for that!) Giggle.

My book, Decoding the Butterfly Promise and I won the Chanticleer Book Review award for the category of Legends & Lore.

We won first in our category and are now in line for the overall winner of the Paranormal Category to be announced at the Chanticleer Authors Conference 2016 this coming weekend.

Greetings folks, just a quick reminder about the blogging course I'm teaching this Saturday at Whatcom Community College. If you've been thinking about blogging but haven't decided, this would be a good course for you. I address issues pertinent to writers especially. :) Here's the blurb:

Express your opinions, build a community, and promote your work through blogging. In this hands-on workshop, we'll use Google's Blogger program to create your blog from start to finish! Instructor Dawn Groves--author and active blogger--will cover the differences between WordPress and Blogger, search engine optimization (SEO), inbound vs. outbound links, RSS, and valuable tips to help your blog stand out. Prerequisite: You must have a Gmail account set up; bring your log-in information to class. If you already have content, bring it on a flash drive.
