Contests, workshops, and news galore! Have you heard?

I love seeing the burst of creativity that is exploding on the Internet from writers I’ve known for the past couple years and ones I’ve recently met.

It’s awesome!

First, we have a writers’ chat tonight (Wednesday) on the Indelibles blog. It’s not on Twitter. Most of the Indelibles’ authors will be there to answer questions on indie and self-publishing. Just lurk or come with your questions.

Second, Addison Moore signed a contract with Twentieth Century Fox! They plan to make her Celestrial Series into a T.V. series. Huge news! I’m so incredibly happy for her and even though she’s eaten sushi to celebrate – I’m just doing dancing to celebrate! Ew. Raw fish.

In the anthology arena, not only do we have IN HIS EYES being prepped for our Valentine’s Day release but Pugalicious Press is open to submissions for a YA anthology. Check them out!

In the way of online workshops there are some incredible ones coming up. Ali Cross is holding NinoCon on Saturday Feb. 4th. She’s accepting queries now to be critiqued by one of the presenters, Elana Johnson!

Susan Sipal, known for her love for Harry Potter and analyzing the writing behind it, is offering a month long workshop for 10 dollars based on her book: A Writer’s Guide to Harry Potter. I’m sure you won’t regret it! The adventure begins on Monday, Feb. 6th! Sign up now.

Don’t miss out on The Bookshelf Muse and their anniversary contest! Critiques and books from the Indelibles! Don’t miss it.

Okay, I’m almost done with the good news. Many of the Indelibles have books fresh off the press!

Rival Demons by Sarra Cannon is released Friday the 20th but it starts with Beautiful Demons. If you love the HEX HALL series, you’ll love this one too.


Karly Kirkpatrick’s  THE GREEN.

Lots of great stuff here. Hope you find something useful! Anything I missed? Add it into the comments!

    Oh, that writer’s chat sounds fantastic! Don’t know if I’ll have any meaningful questions, but I’ll definitely be there lurking (how thoughtful of you all to plan this AFTER my children are in bed for the night – thank you!). And I’m so excited about the Pugalicious Press anthology – I never used to do short stories, but I have one that’s grabbed me, and even if it doesn’t get accepted, it’s turning out to be loads of fun to write.

    Wow, that’s a lot of things happening. 😀

    What time does the chat start? I’m glad it’s not on Twitter. I can never follow those conversations.

    I am on your blogz, stealing your imagez (to post the Indelibles releases). 😉

      Susan – Steal away!

      Stina – It’s at the Indelibles blog. Should be fun.

      Louise – We planned it that way just for you! 🙂

    Thanks for letting us know about the anthology contest. I love historical romance and steampunk! I’m not very good at writing short stories but I will give it a try.

    Lots of great news. I was just over at the Indelibles sight and saw Addison Moore’s news. That’s so exciting that an indie published author can get that kind of deal.

    • Laura January 18, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

      I’m so glad some of you found some new links! I thought for sure I was posting what everyone probably already knew! Phew. 🙂
