Hello Fellow ink Slingers!

    I always learn from these meetings and feel the quality of my writing has improved. Bob was very good at picking out the important issues for self editing.

    I will try my best to come to your signing. Holidays bring so many parties and activities that I become overwhelmed, but I feel your signing is more important than all of them.

    Congratulations Gale. You worked hard and deserve a good turn out.

    Thank you Eveline for promoting Gale's book signing. A good showing at B&N will help all of us to follow.

    I suggest Gale have a guest book and that we all at least drop in and sign it. The store values traffic. I live near the B&N so it easy for me to say, "Come on over and just sign your name." I know it be a trek for some of you. If you plan to do any kind of shopping on Saturday during the hourse 11:00 to 2:00, please consider that Surprise has every kind of store imaginable within the shopping area around B&N. Lowes, Ulta, Ross, Target, Women's Fashions including Steinmart and Kohl's across the street, along with a Super Walmart, Michaels, Home Depot, and restaurants-- oh my, I could go on and on.

    Bring your friends and relatives (or talk them into a car pool) just as you did to the Anthology launch. There is always something to purchase at the bookstore and purchase is not required.

    Great meeting--thank you Bob.

    I recommended: www.score.org

    I just went to the site, typed "author" in the search box. Two mentors popped up--one farmer, the other an engineer. These two have been through everything you hope to. Congratulations Gale. I hope everyone shows up at the Surprise Barnes & Noble during your book signing between 11:00 and 2:00 on Saturday, December 14, 2013. It is important for us to support both Gale and the store.

    Gale:,please have your own guest book so that you can show the manager how much traffic you brought in. Is Gale the first WVWW author to have a local B&N signing?

    I'll have to bow out this month - the weekend prep for next week's conference in Florida turned fraught with complications. Will be working the weekend and wishing I was with you. The Luncheon for the anthology book launch was fabulous. My husband, who also attended, wondered why I hadn't submitted. I'm wondering the same thing! WON'T miss the next anthology The books made a great start to my Christmas shopping!

      Your husband is right and with this in mind when we come calling open the door.

    Much good information crosses the tables in the Saturday Avondale Marketing group. I do hope the various commentators will take time to post the specific Book titles, authors and publication dates that were mentioned during the various discussions. Your valuable information can be shared and passe on best if it is posted in the discussion group of this forum.

    Is it possible t turn a memoir into a murder mystery?
    What is t difference between memoir and autobiography?

      So...if you have a story to tell about your experience as a trained trapeze artist working for Elvis in the caves of Upper-Mongolia in the late 80's....you would be writing a memoir. If you ARE Elvis...and wish to finally reveal to us what REALLY happened, but first want to tell us the REAL story of Elvis...birth to demise (or disappearance into the caves of Mongolia)....then you would be writing an autobiography. I hope this helps. Good luck writing and let us know if you have any further questions. We all learn every time someone raises their hand and has the guts to speak aloud, "I don't know." Thanks William. - Corey S. Merritt

      Thank you f that colorful explanation but, How did you know that I saw Elvis in Mongolia? I strained my trapezoid trying to get an autograph.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
