What's Up the Street For Next Week?

Welcome, welcome!
Did anyone else notice how many followers are up here?!? 164! Since we like to party so much around here, when that grand number hits 200 - we're going to have to have a double giveaway. Don't you think?

Speaking of giveaways...

SYLVIA is the winner of The Vigilante’s Bride by Yvonne Harris. Sylvia send me your snail mail at pepperbasham(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Ralina and Wendy are the winners of Laura Frantz books. WOOHOO!!! Send your snail mail to me or Casey, ladies, and one of us will forward the info to Laura.

Don’t lose heart people. We’re having ANOTHER Giveaway TODAY!!! Leave a comment and we’ll place your name in the drawing for Marylu Tyndall’s newest novel, Surrender The Heart. A fabulous read, btw. It was one of my personal favorites of MaryLu’s swashbuckling fiction :-)

Won’t you be our neighbor? :-)

Isn’t it neat to meet new people? Well, we’ve got a week for you! New faces, new information, and a lot of new tips from great writers. So sit back, kick up your feet, and get ready to meet our new additions to The Writers Alley. Let's see those lovely faces again, shall we? ;-)

On Monday, get ready as Pepper interviews Angie Dicken.

Sherrinda finds out about Julia Reffner on Tuesday.

See what Mary and Cindy Wilson have to talk about on Wednesday.

On Thursday, Casey interviews Wendy Miller.

And end the week with a bang, as Krista finds out more about Sarah Forgrave…with a few laughs.

Does anyone else think these ladies are TOO YOUNG to be moms...let alone writing moms?!?


Pepper starts her new blog series, Fall Into Love, on Words Seasoned With Salt. The fun begins on Monday, October 11th and runs until she can't find any other authors willing to participate. :-) Join some of your favorite authors as they answer the question – What does it look like when your characters Fall In Love? Each other will also provide an excerpt to prove their points :-)

Mary Connealy starts off the week, followed by Rachel Hauck on Wednesday, and Patti Lacy on Friday. Mary’s have a GIVEAWAY of her new release Wrangler in Petticoats.

Mary is talking about Moses, Pharoah, Aaron and plagues # 9 & 10. Check it out here.

Check out Operation Encourage An Author where Shannon Vannatter is the author of the week. And don’t forget to stop by Casey’s blog for her usual giveaways

Sarah is very reflective this week. Check out her reflections about the ACFW conference on her blog. A wonderful opportunity to see some pics too, I’m sure.

I'm excited about Cindy, Wendy, and Sarah joining the team at The Writers Alley. I was privileged to meet all three of them in person at the ACFW conference last month, and they are wonderful women. And, yes, they are young and beautiful. I loved being in their company. Talk about uplifting, encouraging, and downright delightful. They're all that and more. Just like the founding members at TWA.

Pepper said...

Somebody desperately needs to send Keli some chocolate. Seriously. Can that woman get ANY sweeter?!?

So excited to bring these ladies aboard. WHAT a team?!?

Laura Frantz said...

Thanks to you all for hosting me! So happy to send books to Ralina and Wendy:) Bless you all!
