    Ordinary people. Extraordinary romance.

The 2011 edition of the Grand Rapids Region Writers Group “I’ve Always Wanted to Write a Book” Conference is over.  I had a wonderful time, met a lot of great writers, spread the word about our group and gave a fun, interactive workshop on plotting.  Jacqueline Carey gave a warm, funny and inspiring keynote speech, and literary agent Michelle Grajkowski took pitches from a lot of our authors and requested many proposals.

I continue to be impressed with the group of our writers and am so, so glad we had a chance to showcase them this weekend.

Thanks again to the conference committee.  You made the impossible happen.  No one should underestimate the power of these six women.

I look forward to working with them on the next conference.

Go, GRRWG!

I promised the answer to the fledekan disease.  It’s what turns my aliens into zombies in my WIP “Oompa Loompa Zombies and the Star Princess.”  Easter eggs are a form of inside jokes.  I’ve seen them on TV series, and I’m having a lot of fun planting them in OLZSP.

<Drum roll>

Fledekan is Naked Elf spelled backward.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
