What's Up the Street For Next Week?

It’s PAAAAAARTY Time on The Writers Alley. So pull out your best or most zany outfit and put it on. We’re going to celebrate.

First things first – MICHELLE is the winner of Making Waves!! Woohoo! Congrats, Michelle.

So, back to the party.

What are we celebrating, you ask?


And as part of our celebration, we’re giving away a prize. Yvonne Harris’ book, The Vigilante’s Bride. Just leave your name and email address to be placed in the drawing for your chance to win.

We hope those of you who follow us, whom we affectionately refer to you as Alley Pals, are going to have even more to learn with our new Authors.

During the week of October 11th, we’ll give you a formal introduction to the new shopkeepers of The Writers Alley, but for now, let me give you a sneak peak at their faces.
