Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by Writer Routine Wednesday to say hi and hear about Patti's writing routine! Isn't Patti a sweetheart?

But, yes, now the important part: the book winner. :)

The winner of one of Patti Lacy's books is...

Piedmont Writer!


Please go to Patti's contact page HERE and let her know you are the WRW winner and tell her which book you would like her to send to you.


And now for the this and that...

Me too! But fear not! Romance Divas is hosting the

Also, looking for another forum dedicated to answering your questions on romance writing? Check out:

All day Thursday, July 29, 2010, come and spend the day with Harlequin Mills and Boon author, Nicola Marsh.

Grab the opportunity to ask her everything you wanted to know about cracking the HMB Modern Heat and Romance market!

Whew! A lot going on, huh?

Well, that's all for me. But be sure to stop by next Writer Routine Wednesday where Harlequin and Avalon author Holly Jacobs will be sharing her writing routine with us!

Have a GREAT weekend!

I like the idea of virtual conferences, in addition to the actual. It opens the doors to so many writers unable to attend in person.
