Heroes in writing
Good thing I found this spiffy book about giving speeches 
because I'll be giving several in spring 2015!
The only topic I know for sure so far is that
I'll be part of a panel about heroes-in-writing
at an upcoming NC reading conference.

What's green, wears a spiked crown, and is a #1 bestselling book in category on Amazon?
