Greetings, fellow writers --

First, we have excellent news from Amy Frost, who has succeeded in getting a $90 donation from the kind folks of Chi Omega.  Way to go, Amy!

Second, check out the Amazon book awards and cast your vote for one of the top ten picks chosen as finalists by the editors of Penguin Books.  Go to and learn more about these manuscript contenders.  You can see a video of the editors discussing what they liked and disliked.  You can download pdf files of manuscript samples.  You can read reviews from those who have already checked out the samples.  And you can vote.  What fun!  

Happy reading,

Deborah Chester
