FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(July 6, 2007 – Naples, FL)  Naples-based author M. B. Weston will lead three Adult Writing Workshops at Borders located in the Gulf Coast Town Center, 10037 Gulf Center Drive in Ft. Myers. The workshops will be on Saturday, August 11th, Saturday, August 18th and Saturday August 25th.  All sessions are from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM.  These are FREE workshops and there is no requirement to attend all three sessions.  Topics will include “Plot & Structure”, “Character Development” and “The Rules of Great Writing.”

The author will also be signing copies of her first book, A Prophecy Forgotten immediately following the workshops.  For more information on the workshops, contact Borders at 239-267-1155 or MB Weston at 239-821-3769.

M. B. Weston is not only an award-winning writer, but also a very talented and motivating speaker.  She has been scheduled as a guest speaker at many schools and events throughout Florida.  Weston broke into print in November 2004 when her poem, "Message in a Bottle," was published in the Arizona Literary Magazine. Two years later, she landed her first book contract with ArcheBooks Publishing, Inc. She currently speaks to middle school and high school students about writing and getting published, and she leads the Young Writer’s of Naples – a chapter of the Florida Writers’ Association for teenage authors.  “The key to writing fantasy is to make it magical, yet believable.  Too much of either can ruin the story.  These workshops are designed to help find the balance between the ordinary and the extraordinary,” says Weston.

Available now, A Prophecy Forgotten (ISBN-10: I-59507-I69-5; ISBN-13: 978-159507-169-9) is 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 this fantasy fiction story.  Her next book, Out of the Shadows: Book II of the Elysian Chronicles, will be available in December 2007.

Weston is also available for book signings and speaking engagements along with youth and adult writing workshops.  She can be reached at 239-821-3769, by email at mbweston@elysianchronicles.com, and her website is www.elysianchronicles.com.
