The October 28 meeting of the DFW Writers' Workshop was a night of exciting announcements and scary Halloween-themed reads.

Jamie Harrington stated that she has signed a contract with literary agent Victoria Horn of the Lisa Dawson Associates. Jamie's book, Sketch, is a Young Adult superhero novel. Additionally, Mary Malcolm commented that the full manuscript of her romance novel, Texas Billionaire's Runaway Wife, was requested by Melissa Jeglinks of The Knight Agency.

In other news, A. Lee Martinez will speak at the monthly meeting of the Mystery Writers of America - Southwest this Saturday, October 31 at the Texas Land & Cattle restaurant in Richardson, Texas. Workshop members were reminded that nominations for the 2010 Board of Directors opens during the November 4 business meeting. Gabe Guerrero, winner of the Glenn Bavou­sett Conference Fund, gave a presentation about what he learned at the Bedford Writers' Workshop presented by fantasy author Sarah A. Hoyt.

Finally, several brave souls met in a dark room decorated with plastic skulls, tombstones, and lots of Halloween candy. They read to a glow of a flickering electric candle, and enjoyed this fun holiday tradition at the Workshop.
