The Writers Alley Weekend Round-Up

Many of our Alley Cats have been having the time of their lives in St. Louis at the ACFW Conference. Casey got to be on stage and pass out Carol Awards. Pepper had a signing party. Amy and Pepper hung out with The Band. Great memories were made and God was blessing right and left. If you are like me and didn't make it to the conference, rest easy knowing that our Alley Cats will be bringing you wisdom and news from the conference, so don't miss it! It's gonna be grand.

The Alley Weekly Line-Up

Monday - Pepper will be sharing the details of her book contract with Lighthouse Publishing!

Tuesday - Laurie will be sharing about her conference experience and how God goes before her no matter what.

Wednesday - Mary is talking about eBook trends. Fascinating data here!

Thursday - Krista will be sharing great stuff from the conference.

Friday - Casey is hosting Emilie Hendryx today. I do believe there will be some talk about marketing, which is always a good topic to learn about.

Alley Cat News

Our Super Alley Cat, Pepper Basham, signed a contract with Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas! Her debut book is slated to come out in 2015. Pepper will be bringing you all the juicy details here tomorrow, so be sure to stop by.

Can't wait to hear the details on Pepper's signing. :) I can see y'all are having an awesome time. Maybe I'll see y'all next year in Dallas.
Congrats, Pepper!

Courtney! I can't wait either! I couldn't be there and I'm sure it was so exciting!

And I didn't know it is in Dallas next year! That's where I live!
