(September 19, 2007 – Naples, FL)  On Tuesday, October 2nd from 7:00 – 9:00 PM Naples-based author M. B. Weston will share “Open Mic Night” hosting duties with Get Real’s actress Jillian Windham.  This FREE event happens at Barnes & Nobles in the Waterside Shops located at 5377 Tamiami Trail North in Naples.

“Open Mic Night” is an opportunity for the public to come out and share their talents whether it be reading poetry or playing music.  Here in Naples, “Open Mic Night” has evolved into a venue for those in middle and high school to showcase their bands’ talent.  Each act gets 5-10 minutes on stage (depending on the amount of acts) to perform and get more comfortable in front of a crowd while building their following.  In between scheduled performances, Weston and Windham will keep the evening going through a variety of different acts.

Weston graduated cum laude from USF with a BS in Accounting, but she knew writing was her true passion. She 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.

Weston released her first book in April 2007 entitled A Prophecy Forgotten, published through ArcheBooks Publishing.  A Prophecy Forgotten is the first in the Elysian Chronicles trilogy.

Weston is known as a gifted orator and often speaks to writers conference workshops and panels, classrooms, and writing organizations about the craft of writing and the process of getting published. She has a passion for teenagers and leads the Young Writer’s of Naples—a teenage chapter of the Florida Writers Association

"A Prophecy Forgotten" (ISBN-10: I-59507-I69-5; ISBN-13: 978-159507-169-9) is available now. Weston is also available for book signings or speaking engagements.  M. B. Weston can be reached at 239-821-3769, by email at, or online by visiting
