Society of Southwestern Authors- A Double Header for The February 17, 2013 Forum

Nathalie (Tika) Goldston, from Orange, New Jersey, and currently Prescott, Arizona, is the author of VALLEY OF SORROWS, 22 five-star reviews since publication by Smashwords in 2012 and 1,204 downloads to date.  Tika has loved reading and writing all her life but her interest fell into business.  After receiving a BS from Friends University in Wichita, Kansas, and a second BS in Human resources Management, she became a mother of five, grandmother of fifteen and a writer.  It can be done, and she loves her second career.

Tika will discuss the following topics: being objective about your work; is your story marketable; accepting criticism, shelving your ego and to ePublish or not to ePublish that is the question?

Sara Jenlink, of the soon to be published KILLING ANGELS is a Kansas girl who excelled at writing, reading, stage and vocal performances.  She will team up with her longtime friend, Tika, after a fifteen-year career teaching middle school and adults, drama instruction and direction of 3-act productions.  It was only natural that Sara would spend years writing one-act plays for her students, four of which were published with Merriweather Publishing in Colorado.  Sara taught five years of College comp and five years of High School English.  She received a Liberal Arts Degree in Literature, a BS in secondary English Education, and a Masters in English.

Sara will be emphasizing discussions on rewriting, editing tools, and certain genre differences.

Both authors will complement and balance each other with knowledge they want to share with SSA writers on their mutual journey to success in the publishing world.
