Terri Kuenzer, was recently written up in the newspaper about the inclusion of her short story, The Understudy, which will appear in the anthology, Beach ReadsThe publisher, Cat and Mouse Press, is hosting a book launch party on November 12, 2017, at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach, DE.

The event will be held from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. Terri’s published works appear under her pen name, Terri Kiral.

In case you missed it, Australian author (and recent visitor to the Upper Perk Valley), Laura Goodin is virtual writer in residence at Diehl’s Real Teas (Main Street, East Greenville, PA), is running an online discussion group for writers, and has offered to Skype with writing groups meeting at Diehl’s Real Teas. Laura is writing short stories just for Diehl’s, which can be found at their website on the “virtual writer in residence” page.

Hi, fellow writers —

Just a reminder that EVERYONE is welcome in this group. They don’t have to live in the area. So if you have other writer friends, no matter where they live, please go right ahead and ask them if they’d like to join.

Moreover, NaNoWriMo is fast approaching (see nanowrimo.org if you’re not sure what I’m talking about), and I’d love to set up a real-time write-in during November at Diehl’s Real Teas, perhaps even with a Skype link between me in Australia and y’all in the tea shop so we could all write together. Who’s interested?
