Monday – Pepper takes Krista’s post from Friday a bit further by talking about the 4 Most popular Christian Fiction Genres – and what those mean.

Tuesday – Laughlines, Bylines, Headlines,…er…oh, Taglines, that’s it. Sherrinda’s going to discuss taglines, why you choose them and how. You might even get a chance to help her figure out her own ;-)

Wednesday – Don’t miss Mary’s Secret to Success – ways to publication, part one.

I just can't believe that one whale picture, I saw that on my AOL homepage. Just crazy, but thankfully no one was hurt!
