Ms. Healy - I have been a CAPA member since the Spring. My children's book, The Perfectly Imperfect Pumpkin, is currently available and I would not mind at all doing the Meet a Member section of The Authority. Thanks ever so much, Christina Cody
Hi Christina,

That is wonderful! We have an opening for the February issue. I'll e-mail you shortly to give you the scoop.

Thanks for participating!
Carol

Hi, I am a new CT Author and would like to find out how to join CAPA.
Also, I'd love to visit your booth at the Big E. I'm guessing it is too late to participate.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Dvorah,

Dick Benton is in charge of membership. You may want to reach out to him. He's listed in the CAPA social network here. There are three meeting locations to help make CAPA accessible to all of CT. You can come as a guest to any of the meetings to find out more. The main meeting in Avon, CT is on Sat., Sept 18th from 10:30-12:30 at the Senior Center on rte 167 (near Avon HS). The exact address should be listed on the CAPA website.

We hope to see you there!

Hello, Carol,

I joined CAPA last January. For this academic year, I am the interim coordinator of the MFA in Creative and Professional Writing at Western Connecticut State University. I write creative nonfiction myself. I would enjoy the opportunity to be in the "Meet a Member" column, if possible.

Please contact me in this forum or at hazevedo@earthlink.net or at 860-350-5969. I plan to be at the October 16th meeting and will look for you to introduce myself.

Thank you!

Holly Azevedo
Hello Holly,

We'd be happy to feature you in an upcoming column. I'll contact you with details.

Thanks for participating!

Hi Carol,

 

I just joined this group and would love the opportunity to be featured in your "Meet A Member" column if that's still possible. I write contemporary romance.

 

You can reach me at authorannajames@yahoo.com

Hi Carol,

 

If we are members, how do we apply to become a featured member?

 

Also, I have an exciting book launch - virtual book tour - this coming Tuesday.

Where would be the proper place on the site to list the event?

 

Thanks!

D'vorah

Hi Dvorah, 

Consider yourself signed up! Since The Authority is a monthly publication, we are booked solid for a year, however, I will add you in for July 2012. 

To announce great happenings, like your upcoming book launch, I would suggest posting it as a Brag. Peggy Gaffney started an online group for brags:  http://authorsandpublishersct.ning.com/group/brags

Also remember to send a short blurb of your brag with a jpeg of your book, your author photo and a link to your website to Peggy Gaffney for inclusion in the August The Authority newsletter. 

You can also setup an event from your page here and invite people. I haven't tried it, however, you should be able to invite everyone in the CAPA social network that way. 

CAPA also has a Facebook page and you could invite folks through there.

Best of luck with your book launch!

Carol
