You don't want to miss Melissa Williams!

Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 20th!

I met Melissa Williams when she presented at my girls' elementary school in 2012. I was impressed with how she engaged her audience and how she marketed herself and her products. This is a lady who thinks outside the box and overflows with  great ideas on how to get you and your books out there. We are excited to host her at our next WOTS meeting where she'll tell us about her road to publication and beyond. This is something all authors will enjoy and it might just spike the fires of of your own creativity.

Melissa is a children's author so if you have or know school aged children, bring your pocket book because she has a lot of cute things that you'll want to buy up as gifts. Now, more about Melissa...
