LCW April Followup/Invitation

Dear Lancaster Christian Writers:
A super thank you to Todd Dickenson of Aaron's Books for his informative presentation on making the most as an author of the local bookstore. I hope those of us who live in this area will take advantage of Aaron Books' open door and do our part through patronage in helping keep alive the only general market independent bookstore in this part of Pennsylvania. Check out their website for regular community book and author events (they have a fabulous e-book inventory as well): http://www.aaronsbookonline.com/ Next month, we will be welcoming Becky Toews, conference speaker, Bible teacher, Lancaster Bible College professor, and author of non-fiction title Virgin Snow: Leaving Your Mark in the World will be speaking with us practical tips learned from her publishing journey. So do keep open Saturday, May 21, to join us in welcoming her.
Also, if you are in the spring-cleaning mood, LCW member Brinton Culp offers an invitation to Brinton Culp will be presenting "Spring Greening and Cleaning" your home this Wed. evening (April 20) at 7:30pm at Lancaster Country Day School.  The event is hosted by the Lancaster Group Sierra Club and is free and open to the public.  Brinton will cover home safety, organizing, cleaning "green", and a bit about "greening" your lawn/garden.  For questions call Brinton at 717-725-0743 or email brintonculp@yahoo.com 
One other invitation: I will be speaking at a book event and dinner Wednesday, May 4th, 6 PM at Highland Presbyterian Church, Lancaster, PA. Tickets are $7. I'd love to see some familiar faces there if anyone has the evening free. I will be giving the same keynote address I gave at Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference and Montrose Christian Writers Conference. Information at the following news link: http://www.engleonline.com/AdDesk/Htmlfiles/Readers/article.epc?id=48968
For those asking, we WILL be having a June meeting (3rd Saturday). Focus will be on preparing queries and proposals for those summer writers conferences and submissions. So be thinking now of getting together that great proposal you'd like to pitch on your non-fiction or fiction book and bring it along for critique and Q&A.
