Many, many LPI authors will be joining in the fray while Editor in Chief Emma Wayne Porter announces giveaway winners and hands out even more free goodies. Readers are invited to ask questions, hang out, and get to know the people behind all those stories.

During this live blogcast, the LPI editorial staff gets its day in the hotseat. Readers are invited to give their opinions on what kind of stories they want to read. Authors are invited to ask questions about submission guidelines, and maybe even pitch an idea or two. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to speak directly to publishing staff, and be heard!

Come have fun. Come read my story of the bat, the chocolate eclair, and the butterfly net.

Wow! that is a lot of names. The bat, the chocolate eclair and the butterfly net...hmmm, you've got my attention. Can't wait to read it.

Annie Nicholas said...

Personal story, not fiction. LOL

Awww! Well there's a story in there somewhere...hmmm, I've had a bat or 2 but my Jewel with her wicked self goes up the walls to take them down. No wonder I write about cats!

Thank you so much for blogging about this.

I hope everyone will drop by. We're having tons of fun. I'm finding out all kinds of interesting things about our authors. And there are lots of prizes to win!

I just read Annie's bat story, and it is hilarious!
