A First Novel, a Three-Book Deal & a Major Award Jumpstart 2010

It seemed as if the news and announcements would never end at the January 20 meeting of the DFW Writers' Workshop, but that's not a bad thing.

A. Lee Martinez' book, Monster, is now available as a mass-market paperback. Kyle White sold his first novel, Attack of the Crystal Spiders, a Middle Grade science fiction work, to Wild Child Publishing. The American Library Association named Rosemary Clement-Moore's novel Highway to Hell as a 2010 Best Books for Young Adults. One of Kenneth E. Ingles' short stories is a finalist in the current Writer's Digest contest. Candace Havens inked a three-book deal with Harlequin. She will also sign copies of her newest work, Take Me If You Dare, on Saturday, February 6 at 2:00 p.m. at Barnes & Nobel in Hurst.  

Finally, three new members were welcomed to DFWWW, and the Workshop's extensive reference library reopened after a year-end inventory. Books may be checked out for three weeks.
