I'm a member of the Infinite Monkeys genre chapter of the League of Utah Writers. I love it! There are many talented writers in our group, including some incredible published authors.
Last year they announced that they were going to do an anthology featuring members of our chapter. We each had the opportunity to write a short story for it. We could submit and just like anywhere else, if we worked hard enough, our stories could be in the anthology. Amazing editors looked over our work, seasoned authors mentored those of us whom were accepted. More edits and work and now, the cover above shows you the prize of our labors!
August 24th was the book launch party!

Get it! It's amazing! You won't regret it!
I had an amazing time at the Quills conference this year! It's one of the highlights of my year. Linda and I love to volunteer every year and it's such a blast to help out. We get a overwhelming feeling of doing good and get to see our friends.
Another blessing is that we get to attend some wonderful panels from some brilliant editors and authors. Some of my favorite classes this year was on Heroes, Henchmen and Sidekicks by Angie Hodapp, Building Your Self-Publishing Team by Callie Stoker, #Author Twitter by Alex Harrow, and Creating Believable Villains by Maria V Snyder.
A couple other things happened to me. Earth shattering awesomeness. More on that later!
