Kevin S. Moul reads “Souvenirs”

Quillian Kevin S. Moul reads his short story, “Souvenirs.”

It is a current day Urban Fantasy that asks a lifelong saleperson to look at what people take from a place,  and then consider that it’s not the selling that matters — but giving until it hurts.

The reading is at the Quillian Coffee Shop in Second Life at 6PM SLT.  (9 PM EST)  (If not familiar with Second Life, you can download the client here:  SL Download.)

Looking forward to seeing all of you tonight!

Tonight’s Meeting has been canceled, sort of…

Tonight’s meeting has been canceled so we can attend a marketing seminar  that Kat is giving at Builder’s Brewery.  (We will send out the exact LM once the location is confirmed.)   We, as writers, can benefit from learning these skills because the impact of epublishing is having in the industry.

We have been asked to remove scripted objects (Like AO, HUDS, titlers) should be removed to avoid any lag issues.

**UPDATE**
Here is the location for the Kat’s Seminar.
