Fall into writing — two Montana conferences

Montana writers have two chances to attend great little conferences this fall:

The Montana Romance Writers sponsors its inaugural conference September 28-30 at Fairmont Hot Springs, with two bestselling writers from Montana, Kat Martin and BJ Daniels.

The Authors of the Flathead sponsors the Flathead River Writers Conference October 6-7 in at Flathead Valley Community College in Kalispell. I’ll be speaking, along with keynoter Mark Coker of Smashwords, writers John DeDakis and Kathy Dunnehoff, online marketing expert Roxanne McHenry, and agents Jeff Herman and Regina Brooks.


Saturday writing quote

“There is in us an instinct for newness, for renewal, for a liberation of creative power. We seek to awaken in ourselves a force which really changes our lives from within. And yet the same instinct tells us that this change is a recovery of that which is deepest, most original, most personal in ourselves.”

–Thomas Merton, American writer, Trappist monk (1915-68) “Choosing To Love The World”
