A few posts back I asked all of y'all what you expected from me. Free beer, particularly Shiner was mentioned. I'm an accommodating kind of guy so I'll buy a beer for everyone of you who shows up at the Frontiers In Writing Conference here in Amarillo this next June. The dates are June 13 & 14 2008. The conference offers the chance to learn from multi-published authors as well as literary agents and editors at a reasonable cost. Registration cost vary depending on meals and pre-conference workshops, but generally are between $100 and $150. If you can't attend think about entering the contest and get your work critiqued by published authors in the first round and either an agent or acquiring editor in the second. The deadline is March 1st.
Someone also mentioned they wanted to see more song lyrics, and with this being an election year I thought I'd have some fun to the tune of The Addams Family theme song. (Actually I didn't have to change all that much to make it fit)
They’re creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re all together ooky,
Their issues are hidden.
Other people do their biddin'
The truth it is forbidden
So head to a polling place.
Pick a favorite in the race
Even though their all two-faced
Guess the old adage is true, be careful what you ask for.
