Gather member Andrea Pearson text me tonight and said that her Grandmother passed away today. She has been having a hard time lately. My heart just goes out to her. If you would like to send her a message, you can post it in the comment area of her latest post by clicking the link in the following WE posts.


I have made an arrangement to host a contest on Gather.  This winner of this contest will receive a FREE copy of author MaryLu Tynall’s book.  You can find out more about this author and her books in the contest post. To enter the contest, you just need to ask her a question in the comment area of the contest post.  You will find all the details below.

 

ANNOUNCING NEW FORMAT:

For the next few weeks, I will add all the latest prompts to the Gather Writing Essential (WE) group at the beginning of each Today post.  I will also be adding any contests that are current.  I will be actively seeking contests for your enjoyment. So check back each day for updates.

Following the above format will the latest posts!  Yep, I will still be promoting your posts but I will need your help.

IMPORTANT REQUEST:

PLEASE Remember to add your links to your latest posts in the comment area of this post and I will spotlight them in the next edition.

UPDATE ON TODAY ON GATHER post:

I will be sending out mass emails each day or at least try too in an attempt to promote your posts and groups.  I tried not sending them but members seem to not look for them.

So PLEASE Do Not Make My Emails As SPAM. You can just hit the delete button if you do not want to read them.  I will be announcing updates from gather and new contests in the Today post as well and you really do not want to miss those.

Thanks for understanding.
