LCW Welcomes Author Joyce Magnin This Saturday, May 19th

Dear Lancaster Christian Writers:

A reminder that we are meetings THIS Saturday, May 19, 2012, at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, 419 Pierson Rd, Lititz, PA, 17543 from 9:30AM-12 noon (registration opens at 9). Award-winning author Joyce Magnin will be sharing "WHAT'S GOD GOT TO DO WITH IT?", a workshop exploring through the use of scripture and other literary works how to apply Truth, Talent and Technique in our writing, whether as fiction or non-fiction writers. The author of the popular Bright’s Pond novels and middle grade fiction, Joyce Magnin is a frequent workshop leader and conference speaker.

NEED SPEAKER FOR JUNE. Our delightful scheduled June speaker Marlene Banks, acclaimed African-American fiction writer has had to cancel her visit in June for the awful inconvenience that her publisher Moody Press has scheduled an extensive book tour for her latest release then. We wish her well and would love to go along! Marlene has graciously rescheduled to be with us in the fall. BUT that leaves an open slot if anyone would like to suggest a speaker or workshop for that date (Saturday, June 16th).

ONE OTHER TIDBIT: If you have a Kindle or know someone who does, my very first adult international intrigue title, CrossFire [Kregel Publications, 2000] , is on FREE Kindle download this week. Set in the counternarcotics war in Bolivia, where for 16 years I had a first row seat to the rise of a narcopower and all its crazy mix of players from drug cartels, DEA, Special Ops, and the ordinary people caught in the CrossFire, this is above all a story of God's redeeming love in the midst of man's chaos. Its sequel FireStorm will be running a $5 special as well from May 19th-June 19th, for Kindle readers who enjoyed the first title. PLEASE HELP ME SHARE THIS OFFER WHILE IT LASTS.

Until Saturday.
