Starting with a Bang

23281932A good day for a member is a good day for us, and Jenny Martin just gifted the workshop with a whopper. To start the New Year, she’s released her first official book trailer and landed on a national publication’s must-read list.

Dial Penguin will release Jenny’s book, Tracked, in May of this year. We’ve been anxiously awaiting its arrival, and it turns out we’re not the only ones.

Huffing Post recently listed Tracked on their shortlist of the most anticipated YA debuts for 2015. Catch the article here.

And while you’re waiting until May to get your hands on the goods, watch the book trailer and join Tracked’s official crew. Jenny has swag, exclusive content, and prizes for the team…one we’re proud to be a part of.

Con-Book Launch-Con-Repeat

word_artJust because the year is petering to an end doesn’t mean DFWWW members hit the brakes. It has been (and will be) a busy finale to 2014.

Rosemary Clement Moore just arrived back from the Sirens Conference, where she was the keynote speaker. She had only good reviews about the attendees, the hosts, and the atmosphere. The conference focuses on women in fantasy literature, and is both an academic and networking retreat. She’ll be there next year too, so join her and enjoy the company along with the Pacific Northwest weather.

The-Pedestrienne-Book-CoverMeanwhile, member Harry Hall is gearing up for his November 13th book launch at the University of Dallas. Pedestriennes hit the shelves just this week, so grab your copy and catch him at his 7:00 pm reception and book signing in Haggar. An hour later, he’ll present in Lynch Auditorium and give away goodies from Luke’s Locker, Brooks, and Cassie’s Gourmet Popcorn. Details can be found here.

This conference, held November 14th-16th, is the oldest science fiction convention in the city and 1,200 attendees will pass through its doors to catch a glimpse of our very own.

So, there you have it…at least until Thanksgiving.

The History of Her Story

get-attachment.aspx-5Since 1977, Carolyn Rae has been coming to DFW Writers’ Workshop to read, critique, and serve.  She's a founding member, and over the span of 35 years she’s held a number of board positions and been awarded a much deserved lifetime membership. But more than this, she has epitomized for us the sort of perseverance every writer needs to succeed in this business.

And succeed she has.  Long ago, she spun tales to entertain her little sister.  Now, she's entertaining us all.

We are very excited to announce the release of Carolyn’s debut novel,  Romancing the Gold, published by Muse it Up. It’s a romantic suspense with everything you could want – bullets flying, people dying, and a healthy serving a forbidden temptations and physical attractions.

Alongside the purchase of her book, you can catch a recent interview she did for Caroline Clemmon’s blog, A Writer’s Life. There she mentions one of her favorite quotes is by Marjorie Holmes: “You haven’t failed until you quit.” Is this any wonder?  Not for those of us who know Carolyn.  She's earned this one, and we cannot wait for the next.

When you see her, don't forget to shake her hand and congratulate her -- because word is that tenacity is contagious.  We've hung out enough with Carolyn to believe that's true.
