The Weather Might Be Frightful, But The Reads Were Delightful

Many dedicated writers braved a cold winter night to attend the December 9 meeting of DFWWW, which proves that no hardship can keep good authors down.

Perry Curtis Bales announced that publisher Books in Motion requested the full manuscript of his Western novel Gunfighter's Star. Rosemary Clement-Moore submitted her newest novel, tentatively titled Texas Gothic, to her publisher Delacorte. Michelle O'Neal broke into the national magazine market when her article "Testing, Testing: Understanding Blood and Breath Alcohol Testing" appeared in the winter issue of MADDvocate.

Attendees were reminded that 2010 membership dues must be paid in order to vote in the Board of Directors election in January, or to participate in read and critique sessions next year. Two reference books aimed toward writers of children's and Young Adult literature were added to the Workshop's extensive library and are available to be loaned.

Finally, in conference news, it was announced that retailer Books-A-Million has agreed to run the official bookstore at the 2010 DFW Writers' Conference. As an added bonus, all registered conference attendees will receive a 20% discount on purchases of any Books-A-Million merchandise present at the conference center.
