A NEWS UPDATE: Due to a family emergency, Sandra won't be able to attend the Mount Hermon conference this week, as planned. Sorry, everyone. She'll try to come next year.
AND due to circumstances, Chip won't be able to attend the Blue Ridge writer's conference in May. Apologies to everyone -- just couldn't be helped.
Okay, so I'm hoping someone on an island in the Pacific might not notice that I'm quite late with today's post. Sorry. Stuff happens. Stuff that makes me incredibly grateful for our current health care system, thank you very much. Ahem.
But, in other news...
Chip and Jim Rubart taught a great marketing seminar in Nashville last weekend. If you attended, feel free to leave a comment and let others who have yet to attend a Master Seminar session know why it's well worth the money and time.
The next two upcoming sessions, also facilitated by Chip MacGregor, are on craft:
On April 23-24 in Portland, Oregon - Writing a Bestselling Novel - with best selling author Susan May Warren. This is a perfect weekend for authors who are at a place in their writing where they want to learn the secret to moving forward in their careers and enjoying commercial success (aka ... how to write books that sell!)
- Adding Depth to Your Fiction - on May 7-8 in Orlando taught by novelists Lisa Samson and Susan Meissner. This is a rare opportunity to share a weekend with two nationally-recognized writers. (And if Orlando is just too fun or too far for you, no worries. This seminar is also scheduled to take place in Detroit in June.)
Check The Master Seminars website for more info and to register.
A few upcoming books to look forward to:
Jennifer AiLee, author of THE PASTOR'S WIFE will be doing a second title with Abingdon Press, titled THE MOTHER ROAD.
AMG is working with Eva Gibson to release a new bible study, THE THREE MARYS.
Tia McCollors has contracted to write STEPPIN' INTO THE GOOD LIFE with Moody Press' Lift Every Voice line.
And I'm sure there's more news. But it will have to wait 'til next Tuesday. I think I hear the sun setting somewhere over Samoa...
