Hi Babsters,

Our membership is flush with innovation and accomplishment! Check out these blogs and classes by some of our members. Each month we'll send links to interesting posts, new sites coming out, and special projects to be aware of. Let Suzanna know if you have something you'd like to include in a future member newsletter. Don't forget you can put your own blog on the BABS site on Some of our newsletters will also include links to the many books and digital products available from BABS members.

Extending our AUTHORS GO PUBLIC focus, organizers Anne Hill and Suzanna Stinnett are teaching classes in Tiburon at Bel-Tib Rec Department starting June 5th. eBook Creation and Twitter marketing are the topics we'll cover. Go to and search Adults / Writing classes to find the listings. Small classes fill up quickly, so don't miss out!

An opportunity for BABSters who don't live too far away from San Mateo.  On Saturday, June 16 (2-4 pm), there will be an Author Day event at the San Mateo County Fair, for authors to gather to promote and sell their books.  I'm coordinating the author sign-ups.  The fair will provide the author with a free entry and parking pass for the day. Anyone interested should contact me at [address removed] no later than May 15.


Member Marilyn LoRusso is holding a Vision Book workshop:

Join me for a FUN art workshop where you will begin to create a Vision Book using the altered book collage method. A Vision Book is like a Vision Board only in a book! This way you can carry it around or move it from room to room easily in order to gaze upon its pages and enjoy its images and messages. You can include anything in your Vision Book – images and messages that make you feel good and inspire you, places you would like to visit, activities you want to try…anything! Your imagination is unlimited…

I will provide instruction on how to prep your book, different collage methods, and tips on how to make it beautiful. You will leave with 2-3 pages completed and ideas to continue your creative and fun Vision Book journey.
