What's What with WOTS

If you missed the last meeting, you missed a great talk by Anita Onarecker Wood about sharing our stories--which, as Janice said, was also a great lesson in POV. Anita told the 90 Minutes in Heaven story from the perspective of herself and her late husband, Dick Onarecker. Some things are different from what Don Piper (90 Minutes in Heaven) told, but that's the point of Point of View, right? Everyone sees things differently, remembers them differently, interprets them differently. Great lesson for writers.

Next time we get together will be for our Christmas Party and Book Exchange at Linda Kozar's house. We're meeting on December 12 around 11 at her house--and she says she'll tell those of us who don't know where it is how to get there. Bring food and a book for the exchange and expect some insane fun. I've never been before, so I'm really looking forward to it.

Crystal Barnes announced her new release, Win, Love, or Draw, book one in her Marriage & Mayhem series. She designed the cover herself (great job!), formatted it, and got it out there. Janice gave it a wonderful endorsement, not surprising. Crystal is, after all, an award winning author. You know this is going to be good!

Annette O'Hare mentioned that her new one will be coming out through Pelican Book Group in February. A historical romance. Can't wait!

Last but not least, remember the Ladies' Getaway Retreat coming up in January. Lisa Gefrides mentioned it before, the writers retreat and getaway at Frontier Camp near Crockett, Texas. This sounds like a terrific deal and an even better opportunity to spend some quiet, quality time with our manuscripts! According to the site:
Standard Stay: Friday, January 29 - Sunday, January 31, 2016 $109 per person, including 5 delicious meals, and 2 nights of lodging. First meal is Friday supper and ends with brunch on Sunday.
Lisa said she wasn't managing this, but you can register online.
