About the event

I'm so excited to be a part of this wonderful day to benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Charlottesville, VA.

We will have a workshop, attendees can bring their first chapter in for peer and facilitator review and query letter writing, in the morning, and an author panel, A Writer’s Life led by Mary Burton.

Attendees will be able to select the author’s table they would like to lunch with. It will be so much fun.

After lunch books will go on sale and the authors will sign. I'm always happy to sign your well-loved books from home, or even tote bags or other memorabilia. Just come and say hello!! I love to meet fellow book lovers.

Join best selling authors for a day of learning and laughing. Participating authors include Kara Arundel, Joanna Bourne, Mary Burton, Darla Davies, Elizabeth Lennox, K.L. Murphy, Nancy Naigle, Rosemary Shomaker, and LynDee Walker. What a line-up! There will be a Writer's Workshop from 9 am to 10:15 am to discuss the technical aspects of writing and various means of publishing. Participants are encouraged to bring the first page from a current work of theirs or perhaps a letter of inquiry to a publisher for review. A wonderful panel of authors will come together at 10:30 to discuss their methods and books, and to answer your questions. The Local, a favorite Charlottesville restaurant, will provide a fabulous lunch so you can dine and chat with one of your favorite authors, And, finally, the authors will hold a book signing after lunch. It will be a very special day for all those who attend. The Writer's Workshop is limited to 25; the Panel Discussion and Luncheon is open to 110. There is a discount for those who purchase both Workshop and Panel Discussion tickets.
