- Telling A Story Of Survival with Sapphire Geer
Excerpt from a review of "Survive" by Connie Whitely: "In this coming of age tale, Sapphire, our protagonist, lives out a doomsday tale come true. After a lifetime of emotional abuse by her step-father - the only father she’s ever known - she delivers a first-hand account of her efforts to save her family and herself from certain death in the wilds of the Yukon." Having survived a horrific event, Sapphire Geer found the strength years later to tell her story in her first book "Survive" launching Nov. 13th, 2020 on Amazon. Sapphire will share a bit about her story and though she can't give away all the details, she will provide a good foundation for what to expect if you decide to read the book. She will speak about how she found the courage to write her story, despite family disapproval, and what her experience has been like working with a coach, ghostwriter, and small publishing company.

- Holiday Book Teaser and Zoom Party
Too good to miss! Friends, stories, books, a contest, and BYOB all from the comfort of your computer screen! It has been almost a whole year since we've seen each other in person, so we've put together something special and socially distanced for you! We will be gathering by zoom to celebrate all that we have to be thankful for as writers, professionals, friends, and community. This event will be a chance to reunite with each other via zoom and to celebrate with a selection of stories. If you like what you hear, please support the authors at this event and buy a book! We have great and talented writers in our ranks and we are fortunate to have several of our published members read one of "the best parts" of their books to us. The readings won't be long – that's why it's called a teaser! Afterward, we will allow folks to break out into zoom rooms if they would like or stay in the main room to chat. We are pushing the boundaries of zoom to make this event a special one! BYOB encouraged and we'll have a PRIZE for the BEST HOLIDAY HAT so feel free to get creative!
