Congratulations to Dale, Dave, Sandra, and Johanna!


If you’ve had a story (or a book!) published, if you’ve won or placed in a writing contest, if you’ve gotten yourself an agent, or if you have any other news, send me an email so I can share your success. And be sure to let know if you're looking for a writers' group or beta readers; a notice in Quick Brown Fox, will help you find them. 


Yay, Dale!
Hi, Brian.
Just had an email from Commuter Lit... they are going to publish my Morning Coffee Story!!!! I will let you know when and the link when I have it. Thanks for encouraging us to submit there.

In fact, Commuter Lit has now published two of Dale’s stories: “Morning Coffee” {see here} and “The Gypsy’s Promise” (see here}.

Yay, Dave!
Hi, Brian.
The twenty-minute exercise you had us do in the writing for children and young adults is now a full manuscript. I have it out with Beta readers at the moment but should be looking at revisions in the next couple weeks. I titled it, FOR HEAVEN"S SAKE. I hope to have a forward thank you for your help through the workshop.

Hi, Brian.
Just thought I'd drop you a line to tell you that I just finished self publishing the sixth book in my Spirit Series. It's called Spirit of Family.
Your comments and guidance were such a huge help to me when I first started out so thank you so much again. I am receiving so many people calling me wanting to market my second book Spirit of the Game that my head is still spinning.
Sincerely
Sandra J. Smale
Yay, Sandra!

Yay, Johanna!

Thank you once again for all your input and encouragement.
All the best! 
Johanna.
