Writing Excuses Retreat Scholarship / A Memory of Light

Can you believe it, the Writing Excuses Retreat sold out in 9 minutes. Not that I could have afforded to go, but that's spectacular news and gives me hope that by the time I can afford it, maybe it'll still be in operation.

But really the good news is that they are giving out one free scholarship attendance. How awesome is that?

Of course, it'll be a one in ten thousand shot, but I put my chips in on this one. I can't go if I don't try.
That said, let me ask for your referral. One of the requirements is that I have referrals from non-relatives who can vouch for my need, namely need in merit of writing, to consider my application.

If you are willing to give me a referral, please write to the following email address and use the exact subject line. Keep it well under 300 words so that they'll accept it.

Thank you in advance.

Scholarship Application: Luke Piper

Some other great news. A Memory of Light, the final book in the Wheel of Time series is coming out with a book launch party on January 8th. So if you're going, I'll totally see you there.  I don't think I'll brave the early crowd and camp out.  Sorry, it'll be sub-freezing temperatures all day every day round about then. I will be showing up (possibly even in the morning to get a number, then later that evening around 8pm to get lined up for the indoor party.)

I'll be the handsome guy plugged into an available outlet somewhere writing the next best selling novel.

They anticipate hundreds of people so this will certainly be a long wait.

That's all I have for now. Have fun writing.
