FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(June 15, 2007 – Naples, FL) Naples-based author M. B. Weston will be leading a writing workshop entitled “Show, Don’t Tell” an Author’s Showcase scheduled for October 10th from 6:30 PM– 8:00 PM at Palm Harbor’s East Lake Community Library, located at 4125 East Lake Road. This is a FREE workshop open to teens and adults who want to improve their writing skills.
Weston’s “Show, Don’t Tell” workshop will help authors avoid the “telling” trap. She will discuss the three main “telling” mistakes most authors make and offer concrete solutions to help them “show” their stories and give readers the experience they’re craving. Weston says, “Readers want to experience a story—not hear a summary of it. Don’t deprive your audience of your story’s experience by telling them the plot on instead of showing it.”
M. B. Weston is not only an award-winning writer, but also a talented and motivating speaker. She has been scheduled as a guest speaker at many schools and events throughout Florida.
M. B. Weston is the author of A Prophecy Forgotten, the first in the Elysian Chronicles trilogy. It’s a Tolkien-meets-Clancy fantasy novel about guardian angel warfare and treason that embodies the themes of faith, hope and living according to your purpose through a fantasy fiction story. Her next book, Out of the Shadows: Book II of the Elysian Chronicles, will be available in December 2007.
A Prophecy Forgotten (ISBN-10: I-59507-I69-5; ISBN-13: 978-159507-169-9) is available now. Weston can be reached at 239-821-3769, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or online by visiting www.elysianchronicles.com.
