How time flies! It's almost time for another meeting

Alan Brooks (pen name D. A. Knight)
with his recent publication,
Cretaceous Clay & the Black Dwarf.
In just another week, we'll have another meeting of the Dallas/Fort Worth Catholic Writers Group. Those of us who aren't in New Jersey for the Catholic Writers Conference, that is. Founding member Nancy Ward will be at the conference this year to pitch a book to Catholic publishers. Good luck, Nancy!

Our local group was inspired by last year's Catholic Writers Conference, held at the Arlington (TX) convention center in August 2012. A lot has been accomplished since our first meeting last September, and we hope local writers (and aspiring writers) will continue to join us for mutual support and encouragement.

One of the things that has been accomplished since last year's conference is the publication of Alan Brooks' novel, Cretaceous Clay & the Black Dwarf. Those who attended our most recent meeting had an opportunity to snag a review copy of the novel (written under the pen name D. A. Knight). To find out what other members are working on, take a look at this post from May.

If you are new or a returning member, please join us when we meet again on Friday, August 9, at Half-Price Books, 5803 E. Northwest Highway near Central Expressway in Dallas. Click here for a map and directions. Look for our group in or near the Community Room at the far left rear corner (just past the Hollywood Lights). Feel free to bring your lunch or pick something up at the in-house café.
