Just a quick note for my loyal blog readers who may have missed the memo in my April e-zine:
I will be teaching a weekend seminar on writing in Couer D’Alene, Idaho on the weekend of April 25-27. The teaching will be Friday night and all day Saturday. On Sunday, I’ll be doing paid one-on-one critiques of writing samples and web sites.
I’ve never been to Couer D’Alene, but I hear it’s beautiful, and I’m looking forward to meeting the great folks in the Idaho Writer’s League who are sponsoring this event. You can get ALL the pesky details on their web site here.
Of course, this announcement won’t do you much good unless you live in the great northwest, but this blog is read by so many people that I’ll bet there are quite a few of you who can make it.
I’d love to meet you there! I’ll be speaking in detail on many of the things we’ve discussed here in bits and pieces. I have eight full hours to talk, and I can say quite a lot in eight hours. I’ve got a full lineup of topics on both the craft and marketing of fiction. I will also have some good deals on my books and some great deals on my CDs.

I won’t be able to make it Randy – but be sure you get time to get out and wander around – it’s some of the most beautiful country you’ll ever see.
Very friendly people also – my husband and I stopped for the night there on a motorcycle vacation one year. The only place open to eat was a downtown bar. Turned out to be “Senior Night”. The group promptly adopted us, and I danced all night with Octagenarians! Fond memory.

Yaahooo! Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is in the panhandle of Idaho, about 30 minutes from Spokane, Washington. It’s on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene, considered one of the five most beautiful lakes in the world. I’m going to scramble to meet with you, Randy, as you’re only 28 minutes from where I live.
Love to see you since you’ll be in my vicinity ! Alas, I’m afraid I used up all my mommy away time going to the Mt Hermon conference (hubby’s eye still twitches occasionally when I mention getting away, 🙂 But have fun, its a beautiful place and if you get lucky and the weather is nice, the walk around the Coeur d’Alene resort is wonderful!
I’ll be there!
Carrie, you staying in town? Need a roommate? I’m 2.5 hours, so too far to drive home Friday night.
