Ralph Hieb just received word that the book his short story Walter and
Stella appears in won the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards for
Anthology. He was also informed that the book won 2010 Next Generation Indie
Book Awards for Short Story Fiction. Both awards were presented by
Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group. Way to go, Ralph!

Diane Nelson shouts from the rooftops: "I have several things being
published, early Summer, 2010:
- Dragon Academy [YA/adult] fantasy/SciFi by ireadiwrite Publishers

- Dancing in the Dark: An Erotica Anthology, edited by Diane Nelson [me,
also contains my short story Dance Macabre

- Three short stories, including two flash fictions: on -- 
Charles, Seduction and Magick." We are green with envy, Diane!

From Jon Gibbs: "I just heard from those good folks at Flashshot (an online
publication which publishes stories of 100 words or less on a daily basis).
I pitched them three (100-word) drabbles, Cursed, Snake Eyes, and Through A
Curved Lens. This morning I got an email from them, telling me they've
accepted them all." Three? That's a darn good morning email, Jon!

Hi GLVWG Members,
I'll be teaching part 2 of my novel writing course at NACC this summer. The
class runs eight weeks, Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30, June 22 to
August 10. The class will focus on getting the opening chapters right,
writing a query letter and a synopsis---everything you need to submit. This
is a great opportunity for anyone working on revisions of a completed ms or
someone who has just started a new work in progress. If interested, you can
register on line at or call (877) 543-0998 Look at or
ask about the noncredit summer courses in writing. If you decide to attend,
bring the first 2 pages of your WIP, I plan to dive right in.

Thank you and hope to see some of you there... From the proverbial
grapevine: Kathleen's class is very popular.

Invitation from Jeffrey Allen:  I would like to take this opportunity to
invite anyone interested in a unique and interesting way to create indelible
characters in your stories to come to my class at Main Campus Northampton
Community College, July 1st -August 19th. Some of our members have already
signed up. The more participants we have the better because then there will
be more varied discussion.

Dr. Rich Snyder has written a new book, What You Must Know About Kidney
Disease: A Guide to Conventional and Complementary Therapy. Available for
pre-order on Amazon now, it will be fully available come August. There are
26 million people with kidney disease in this country and over 600,000 on
dialysis. This book is serving as a fundraiser for the American Kidney Fund,
which financially helps many of the patients on dialysis to make ends meet.
Rich is donating 25% of whatever he earns to the American Kidney Fund.
