Attended OKRWA meeting Saturday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and the guest speaker was Mel Odom. He spoke on the pros and cons of New York publishing via an Agency or Self-publishing.  He also told about the difference in royalties received from each. He touched on Amazon, Kindle and said Kindle Unlimited is the best thing out there. Time with him was so limited that I am eager for his return through OKRWA or another venue. I did tag him on FB.  Seems he is into building.

Attended Romance Writers of America Oklahoma Chapters retreat last weekend and felt truly  fulfilled.  What a wonderful weekend.  Love and encouragement from fellow writers plus I won a gift basket.  Guess what?  It contained several books and A DIFFERENT SEASON was one of them. Thank you, Lord for your blessing of growing sales.
