Writing Op For Pet Lovers

A writing op for all you pet lovers!

New York Times best-selling authors Dr. Marty Becker (of "Good Morning America") and Gina Spadafori are working on a new book series for the publisher of the "Chicken Soup" books. Looking for writers (you don't have to be a professional, or even published before) with inspirational stories on dogs, cats and horses. Also looking for great photographs. Payment for all published submissions.

Deadline for submissions is March 15, with the books coming out in the fall.

Here's where to go for information on how to get stories and pictures in the books:

ACFW Genesis Contest

Sushi for One by Camy Tang

I recently accepted Camy Tang's invitation to judge the ACFW 2008 GENESIS CONTEST

The 2008 ACFW Genesis contest is open to ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) members unpublished in adult or young adult fiction in the last seven years (no published fiction print or electronic works of 20,000 words or more). Authors of non-fiction or library bound fiction dissertations are eligible.

This is an excellent organization and very worthy contest. Use the links above to check out both the organization and the contest.

And I've read Camy excellent novel, Sushi for One. Definitely worth the read. Her next book Only Uni is due out this February.

February Meeting of the NJCWG

I am looking forward to the February meeting of the North Jersey Christian Writers Group. I hope you are as well! Sally Stuart's Christian Writers Market Guide arrived last week. I will distribute them to members who ordered them at our February meeting. Our lesson time will be spent learning how to use the book to our best advantage.
