With your interactive map, you’ll be guided to Meg’s race day stops with fun surprises, treats, and giveaways at each location (Black Rock Coffee Bar, GLAMbeauty Bar, Erik Morton, State Farm Agency, and Veraison Wine & Events).

The event is free! Race maps will be provided at each location. Get a stamp at each stop to be entered into drawings for amazing Meg-inspired giveaways (winners do not need to be present to win). Each stop is located in the former Spark’s Building at the corner of Evergreen and Broadway in downtown Vancouver, Washington.

About FIRST DEGREE MUDDER:

When a mud marathon champion bites the dust, Meg Reed has to go the distance to make sure a killer comes clean . . .
 
Back home in Portland, Oregon, Meg is ready to take her career as an outdoor writer for Extreme magazine to the next level. Lesser journalists sling mud—Meg plans to run through it. To train hard for Mud, Sweat & Beers, an extreme 5K mud run, she’s signed on with the Mind Over Mudder team, run by ten-time mud marathon champ—and former drill sergeant—Billy the Tank. But when Meg finds her tenacious trainer dead in the locker room, she has a sinking feeling someone may have been pushed too far. Digging through the hidden secrets at Mind Over Mudder is a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it. Meg will have to tread carefully, though—or she may soon be running for her life . . .

The Sunday Sessions 

With Christine Fletcher December 11th at 3pm

Join us for The Sunday Sessions on December 11th at 3pm for a mini workshop with Christine Fletcher on I Couldn't Put It Down! Using Conflict to Hook Your Readers.

"Conflict on every page” is common advice for fiction writers. Does this mean your characters must argue and fight constantly? Not at all. In this workshop, we’ll explore the many flavors of conflict, from the knife-edge tension of silence to the excitement of a full-on battle scene. We’ll discuss how conflict advances plot, reveals character, and raises the stakes, and how its skillful use will keep your readers turning pages well into the wee hours.

Come with questions, a passion for writing, & something to take notes with. These workshops are free & open to the public.

Any questions about attending can be directed to vbwritersgroup@gmail.com

Who Picked this Book? Book Club will discuss My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry at their August meeting, on Sunday 8/21 at 3pm:

A charming, warmhearted novel from the author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove.
Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy as in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers crazy. She is also Elsa's best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother's stories, in the Land-of-Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas, where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.
When Elsa's grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa's greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother's instructions lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other.
