angie-lofthouse.jpgWriting Short Stories with Angie Lofthouse

August 16, 7:00 P.M.

Angie Lofthouse has published a dozen sci-fi and fantasy short stories in such publications as NFG, AlienSkin, Amazing Journeys, The Sword Review, Dragons, Knights and Angels, Irreantum, and Unparalleled Journeys.

heather-mooresmall.jpgHeather Moore - The Publication Path: From First Draft to Book Release

September 10, 7:00 P.M.

Heather B. Moore is the award-winning author of several historical novels which are set in Ancient Arabia and Mesoamerica. She is not old and doesn’t remember the time period, so Google.com has become a great friend. Although she has spent several years living in the Middle East, she prefers to forget the smells. Heather writes under the pen name H.B. Moore so that men will buy her books. She is also the author of one non-fiction book, which took her much too long to research and write, so she is back to novel writing. Heather graduated from Brigham Young University with a major in Fashion Merchandising and minor in Business Management—which has absolutely nothing to do with writing novels. But at least she can balance a mean checkbook and color-coordinate her kids’ school clothes.
Visit Heather’s website here: www.hbmoore.com. If you’re an aspiring writer, she also manages the editing company: www.precisioneditinggroup.com

 

cindy%20hogan.jpgCindy Hogan - Stress free timeline for self-publishing

October 18, 7:00 P.M.

Cindy M. Hogan graduated with a secondary education teaching degree at BYU and enjoys spending time with unpredictable teenagers. More than anything she loves the time she has with her own teenage daughters and wishes she could freeze them at this fun age. If she's not reading or writing, you'll find her snuggled up with the love of her life watching a great movie or planning their next party. She loves to bake, garden and be outdoors doing just about anything.

 

karen%2013.jpgHow To Be An Idea Factory with Karen Hoover

November 15, 7:00 P.M.

Karen E. Hoover has loved the written word for as long as she can remember. Her favorite memory of her dad is the time he spent with Karen on his lap, telling her stories for hours on end. Her dad promised he would have Karen reading on her own by the time she was four years old … and he very nearly did. Karen took the gift of words her dad gave her and ran with it. Since then, she’s written two novels and reams of poetry. Her head is fairly popping with ideas, so she plans to write until she’s ninety-four or maybe even a hundred and four.
Inspiration is found everywhere, but Karen’s heart is fueled by her husband and two sons, the Rocky Mountains, her chronic addiction to pens and paper, and the smell of her laser printer in the morning.
