Southeastern Writers...

I discovered this blog and website for the Southeastern Writers Association; they offer workshops, information on conferences and writing contests, and blurbs about regional authors. Although the focus seems to be more on Georgia, they also feature writers from NC, SC, and other Southeastern states. The membership fee is $35, and they offer services for members, like links to authors' sites and blogs and announcements about members' books being published. Worth checking out!

2008 SIBA Trade Show

Around 500 Southeastern booksellers - not to mention around 1500 book editors, publishers, authors, and other industry professionals - are going to be at the 2008 Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance Trade Show, September 26 - 28, in Mobile, Alabama.

Just a few of the authors who'll be there.... Ron Rash, Celia Rivenbark, William Conescu, Rick Bragg, Sarah Addison Allen, and many, many more.
