New Writing Class
Hi folks-- a little commercial interlude before we begin today's program. I'm going to be teaching an online class in writing Urban Fantasy for The Carolina Romance Writers Chapter of RWA beginning April 2. If it sounds like something you might be interested in, here's the info.
What we’ll cover in this course will apply to not only Urban Fantasy, but to all genres. While some topics are specific to UF, world building, for instance, most pertain to crafting a good a story. I’ll also include lessons on the business of writing, something often neglected but very important. The publishing world is changing daily. You need to be aware of how those changes affect you. So, what is Urban Fantasy? Why has it become the hottest new genre to hit the market in decades? Is it too late to tap in? What elements do you need to write UF? These are some of the questions we’ll be addressing in this course.
For CRW and HCRW members $15, all others $25

I love spring. The grass is turning green, the trees are starting to bud, the flowers are poking their little heads up. Means we should get a snow storm any minute to squash them flat. Anyway, here's a look at my yard.
And it's like bunny heaven in our yard, too. Yesterday I counted five--FIVE!!! Of course I couldn't persuade them to pose together for a pic but here are two.

Okay, so it's a slow news week. I've been busy with copy edits for Haunted, finishing the first draft for Fallen (the new series), writing a part of screenplay for a class, working on the ninth Anna book (no working title yet) and updating my lessons for the CRW class I mentioned above. So I really have been busy. About the only newsworthy item that I came across was this:Tattered Cover Book Store is in negotiations to open multiple outlets at Denver International Airport, CBS4 reported. "Yes, we're hoping to," owner Joyce Meskis confirmed. "It's in the hands of the city at this point." She told CBS4 that tentative plans call for the bookseller to partner with Hudson News, taking over and rebranding airport sites as Tattered Cover outlets. Hudson News would continue to be involved in the operation of the bookstores.
"We would be working together with them, but the names would be Tattered Cover," Meskis added. She also called the DIA plan a "win-win" move: "They (DIA) want to show travelers the connection to Denver and we would hope to have more exposure."
I'm hoping this means I might see more of my books at the airport. I seem to find them in every city but my own!!
