What's Up the Street For Next Week?

If you haven't noticed we really like to celebrate around here!
And what a better way to start off June than with some partying.

Out of over 100 entries, Casey Herringshaw was picked as one of six finalists in the Frasier Writing Contest given by Susan May Warren, Rachel Hauck, and Sarah Anne Sympolec over at My Book Therapy. It's a great honor and we're super proud of our youngest Alley Cat!

Winners for the Frasier will be announced at the My Book Therapy Pizza Party at ACFW in St. Louis, MO.
Good luck, Case. WOOHOOOO!!!

More news? Congrats to Patsy. She's our winner for Jeannie Campbell's Writers Guild to Creating Rich Back Stories

Now, let's look at our week, shall we?

Gotta pitch? Stop by Monday and read a little about pitches and get ready to show off your own. Pepper has roped in the support of the other Alley Cats and is going to have a Pitch & Blurb day - so bring your best, and we'll all work on them together.

School is out for most people - and that means Sherrinda too. Stop by Tuesday and check out what she has to share with us after a full year of chaos and mental exhaustion. Writing from Scratch with Sherrinda.

Wednesday Mary welcomes in a MASTER storyteller. Or at least the sage advice of a master storyteller. Stop by for a post entitled "Dear C.S. Lewis"

Our little Frasier winner - Casey, brings you some 'time management tips for the harried home writer' on Thursday. If time is NOT on your side, or you need encouragement in the midst of life's crazy twists and turns, check out this post.

Back to the writing business, with Krista's Friday post - Money & Writing: Part II. The Big Tax Debate.

Newstand:

Sarah is giving away an Amazon card on her blog this week.

Pepper's continuing her review series with A Week's Review with Deeanne Gist on her blog.
