Member, Harry Robbins, Announces the Sale of His First Novel

Word must have gotten out that the December 16 meeting of DFWWW was the annual Christmas party, because nine visitors attended  - a record number. It had to be the many great reads that brought the visitors in … or the scrumptious spread of homemade goodies.

Full stomachs only enhanced the news from Workshop members. Harry Robbins announced the sale of his first novel, a fantasy titled The Bard Prince, to Books in Motion. Jenny Martin received three requests from literary agents for the full manuscript of her Young Adult novel Holy, Texas. Kyle White sold a short story to AlienSkin magazine. Books in Motion bought George Goldth­waite's second Western, Return of Sam Rache. Tricia Allen will speak at the Polk-Wisdom Public Library in Dallas on December 19 at 2:30 p.m. Her topic is using 'new history' in fiction.

Finally, everyone was reminded that the early-bird registration fee of $185 for the 2010 DFW Writers' Conference ends on January  31, 2010. Thereafter, the price increases to $235. Agent appointments are still available, but are filling fast.
