Our Elf gets cozy with Elsa!

The holiday season is upon us. Our Christmas Elf on the Shelf just visited, so my youngest daughter is especially careful of her conduct, and with NaNoWriMo finished, I can finally take a breath to enjoy it all and reflect back on our busy year in Sunshine State Romance Authors. And as I look back, WOW–we have been really busy with our efforts to help writers at every stage in their career be more successful!

Did you know, in 2014, Sunshine State Romance Authors…

  • Hosted 8 meetings, all with unique craft or subject-related programming
  • Hosted two paid workshops, both for a profit for our chapter
  • Hosted 12 PRO/PAN meetings, totaling 48 hours.
  • Recorded and posted 4 programs for our members, totaling over 5 hours of video!
  • And that’s what we did as a group. Individually, as writers, we did so much more! I’ll be detailing it all at our upcoming holiday party, which reminds me…

President at SSRA
Dylan Newton was born and raised in a small town in Upstate New York where the local library was her favorite hang-out. Despite earning a degree in English Literature, Dylan spent more than a decade sidetracked by an executive position in corporate America where she swears she contracted testosterone poisoning. After leaving, she dedicated herself to more estrogen-rich passions, like motherhood, writing romance novels and her never-ending quest for the perfect date night.

Dylan married her high-school sweetheart and they are busy living out their own happily ever after in sunny Florida with their two incredible daughters and a snoring Shiz-Tsu.
