On Monday, August 9th,  RRBC’s 6th Annual Writers’  Conference & Book Expo begins and you are invited!

Monday, August 9th, is the start of RRBC’s 6th Annual Writers’  Conference & Book Expo. There will be games, prizes, surprises and other goodies, so be sure to visit each Author Booth, take a look around, and for a chance to win a door prize, leave a comment. Every Author is giving away a door prize and visitor comments are the entries. The more booths you comment on, the more chances you’ll have to win a door prize.

How about a virtual Scavenger Hunt? In each Author Booth, you will find a clue. If you find the correct answer to all the clues and are the first to submit your answers, you could be the prize winner. There’s also a game called “Two Truths and a Lie” which is always fun. The author will tell you three things, but only two are true. Can you see through the lie?

 The conference will include a READING ROOM and one of our members is going to blow you away showcasing their talent!

If you’re into BINGO, purchase your BINGO cards and join us for a game or two!

And what we all wait for every year – the RAFFLE!  Enter for your chance to win one of (7) $100 Amazon gift cards, a variety of gift certificates, ebooks and more. The raffle is open to the public. Raffle tickets are only $5, so snag your tickets today. The more tickets you buy, the greater your chances of winning, but  please do not purchase more than 7 tickets.

This year for the first time ever, we’ve added our BEST BOOK COVER CONTEST!  This contest is open to the general public so go ahead and enter your book cover(s) now!  Share your comments with us and let us know which one you think is best.

Welcome to Stories By Karen!

Greetings, everyone.

Those of you who have been here before will notice a difference. Stories by Karen got a facelift! I don’t mind the wrinkles around my eyes, but it was time to eliminate the wrinkles on this website. A nonsurgical overhaul solved the problem. Please take a minute to visit the links above. You’ll learn a little bit about me and the writing that I’ve done.

With the new look comes a new agenda. Book reviews, author interviews, short stories, book previews, and writing tips are being lined up for your reading pleasure. Authors who would like to be featured on Stories by Karen, are invited to send their author bio and contact information to: Features4StoriesbyKaren@yahoo.com.

I am planning to showcase a few authors each month. Flash fiction, poetry, and book previews, if available, will be included with author introductions and interviews. There is a lot of talent in the writing world and I’m looking forward to sharing some of it.

Thank you for stopping by. Best wishes for a wonderful August!
