FreeValley will usually bring you fiction, but today’s story is one of success for the founding authors. We shared our novels with the public for the last couple days and discovered many more writers, some already published authors and some great stories that are emerging in our area. We were thrilled to have several book sales too. Some writers are interested in connecting with us for consultation, promotional reasons or best of all encouragement and camaraderie. We can’t wait to talk to them more.
We’d love to connect with you as well. FreeValley was named such because it encourages communication between writers in a wide virtual valley. It came together in the Snoqualmie Valley in the Cascade foothills, but FreeValley is worldwide and reaches for the worlds of imagination to let stories run free and be shared with readers. If you’re here for reading, we welcome you too!
Writers, we’ll soon be asking for your stories to be submitted here for posting. We’ve enjoyed meeting many writer’s this weekend and will look forward to hearing from you.
Fantastic! Looks like a great event.
Thanks, Brenda! It was rewarding and a fun weekend. It’s always great to get together with other writers, and sharing our published works with the community gave a real spark. Thanks for the encouragement.
We have a group of authors who get together at the Friday farmer’s market here, but it doesn’t look as organized and well-attended as yours! Even so, I enjoyed talking to the author who was there.
FreeValley Publishing grew out of a group of writers that have been meeting faithfully for five years. Some come and some go, but it’s been a solid crew with lots of heart and talent. You’re welcome to connect with us online and by email at email@example.com. I know it’s not quite the same as face to face, but we’ve got plenty of encouragement to send your way. Drop us a line and let us know what you’re writing…and of course, we’re following your blog. 🙂
Besides the fairy tales, published on my blog and in progress, I also wrote a children’s chapter book about a bird that becomes that fastest swallow that ever lived. I sent it to one publisher, but heard nothing. I thought I might go to a couple writer’s conferences this year. The book is too long for the blog.
If you’d ever like to sent an excerpt by email, I’d love to consider posting that. It sounds intriguing.
I’ll think it over. Hubby is urging me to send it out again. I’ll decide in September once I have some alone time to just think. It’s a nice offer, thanks!! Warmly, Brenda
This is awesome!! So glad to see you all creating this incredible group and providing another point of connection for writers.
I’m so thrilled, I can’t even express it! You guys all rock and I’m proud to call you my fellow artists. Here’s to even more success!
Thanks, Casz! Pat yourself on the back. The spark you held high continues to burn bright.
Reblogged this on Tommia's Tablet and commented:
Today’s “Wednesday Words” focus about the most wondrous weekend for writers! (smile)
Agreed, Casz, hat’s off to you for planting the seed that made this possible!
Where were you when I lived there? Tweeted for you.
Thanks! I guess these seedlings took some time to sprout. Thanks for connecting with us online. What are you writing?
Thanks for asking about my writing.. Three novels published, two short stories published, and an anthology set to go online Sept. 7. I’m also working on another novel and will compile a Twisted Tales From The Northwest by next year. Those tales I wrote while living outside of North Bend. Check my website http://www.maricollier.com or ask one of your members. She was one of my gifted Sunday School students. That would be Ms. Wright. She is bound to succeed in whatever she does.
Wonderful! Thanks for directing me to your page. If you’d like to submit an excerpt or very short story to share here on FVP, I’ll be happy to post it with links to you and your site. Send to FreeValleyPublishing@gmail.com if you’re interested. I agree Ms. Wright is a stunning talent and great lady.
kudos to all involved!
Thanks, Rachel! 🙂
