WIFYR sans BYU

Looks like things are really changing at the WIFYR workshop. They're holding it at Waterford in Sandy, not at BYU, and they're not even offering it through Continuing Education.

Registration should open next week. The two sci-fi/fantasy teachers are Brandon Mull and Dave Wolverton. I am so excited! Here's the link to the Twitter page:

Hope to see you there!

Petronella!

Hey! Petronella Saves Nearly Everyone is out for purchase!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least, I just found out it was. I just bought it and it looks fantastic! I can't wait to read it. It's just the sort of book I love. AND I've met the author, who will have to sign it if ever I see her again. Hooray!

sorry about all the exclamation marks. I seem to have used my quota for the year of 2010.
