Thanks to everyone who commented on my interview with Author Susan McBride. I thought she gave excellent insights into women's publishing and more. (In case you missed it, click here.) The eleven people who posted a comment were entered into a drawing to win a copy of Susan's newest book, "The Little Black Dress." After a highly technical selection process that involved strips of paper and a cup, my fiance drew out a name. That name belonged to Margo. Congrats!
Margo, please send an e-mail to Tricia at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address, so she can send you your new copy of "Little Black Dress."
The next speaker blog interview will be posted sometime next week. When Tricia told me who our next speaker series interview will spotlight, I was pretty excited. We are all in for a treat. While I can’t tell you who it is, yet, I can say that she is a highly successful author who has had one of her books made into a popular motion picture by Warner Brothers Studio. She is one of our two keynote speakers and will be giving a breakout session and a Sunday workshop.
Look for it on (or around) Sept. 30. A day later, on Oct. 1, Tricia will officially announce the entire 2012 MWG conference speaker line-up on the Missouri Writers' Guild website.
