    Our next Webinar will be on May 18th, with award winning author, Linda K Silva, on the topic of developing characters in your novels.  The following provides details and information about the webinar, and about Linda K Silva.

    To Register for this event, please go to: http://goldencrown.org/calendar?eventId=648248&EventViewMode=EventDetails

    Linda K. Silva will discuss why characters are designed and built, not necessarily created; how character creation is the first step in good fiction; and what you need to know about your characters before you put them into action on the page. I'll also be discussing what teachers mean by 'Show don't Tell', and how to go about showing character emotion rather than telling the reader how they feel.

    Linda Kay recently won the Alice B award for her body of work and is up for 5 Golden Crown Awards for 2013. She currently has four series being published:
    Man Eaters -- Zombie Thriller
    Echo Branson -- Paranornal
    Jessie Ferguson -- Time Travel
    Delta Stevens -- Mystery

    Her 18th novel, In the Nick of Time came out in February, and The Horde is slated for publication in May of 2013. She is the recipient of two Goldies and one Lambda nomination, and she mentors young writers at a local middle school.
    When not writing, which is seldom, Linda Kay is a Professor of literature at American Military University in West Virginia where she teaches American, World, British literature, African, Asian, Women's, and Modern Epic Fantasy literature. She is also the advisor for the LGBT Club at the university and she mentors several other young writers across the globe.
