The Knock-Out Punch

In Carla Hoch's own words, she's a walking contradiction. Here are a few lines from her website that prove the point: 

  • She was offered a college softball scholarship to run bases, but her friends have to lie to her to get her out of the house
  • She's an introvert, but she's not shy 
  • She hates chick flicks, but loves Barbies
On her blog "Red Writer's Hood," the Breaking Reed author calls herself "Various and Assorted":
I'm a Christian, Speculative Fiction writing, 40 something year old stay-at-home mom who enjoys martial arts, spicy Thai Food, raisins in my oatmeal, reading and doing nothing at all. 
Her love of martial arts provides her topic this coming Saturday. Anyone with a need to create a realistic fight scene should plan to attend!

In other news:

Congratulations for Nancy Kimball being a Grace Awards finalist! You can find her novel on Amazon. Meanwhile, we can pray she goes from Finalist status to Winner!

Kathrese McKee talked with Bob Stewart recently, who shared that his father's nonfiction book, Revenge Redeemed, is coming out again (with a study guide). Kathrese says, "Please continue to pray for this family whose loss came so unexpectedly. Bob said again how very much he appreciates the remembrance book we put together."

Sounds like everyone had a blast at the March 5 write-in at Annette O'Hare's house. According to Janice Thompson: "Lots of visiting, brainstorming and writing." Just in case you haven't seen them, here are a few pics I stole from Janice and others: 

Donna Pyle has a special request:

My book QUENCHED has been nominated as one of Christian Retailing's Best books in women's non-fiction. PRAISE THE LORD! You can vote if you work in a Christian retail store, volunteer in a church bookstore, work for a publisher or supplier, work for a gift supplier or distributor, you are an author, recording artist or literary agent. If eligible, would you consider voting for me in Category #25? THANK YOU SO MUCH!! 

Kathrese McKee is holding a Facebook Party this coming Tuesday night, Spring Break or not! She's hoping we'll all be there to celebrate the launch of Mardan's Mark and its novella companion. She says, "It's come and go, of course, so hop in when you get a moment. Thanks in advance!"
