Pat Trainum says, "I am an MBT Premium member, and I wouldn’t give it up for anything. In September, an editor requested a proposal for a romance. Never thought about writing a romance. I immediately went to the MBT Locker Room and researched the Library for articles on writing romances. In August I started out with an idea. The library and the MBT Kiss and Tell workbook provided the help I needed, and in December I wrote The End and sent it off. I also utilize the webinars and Peptalks by Susie and Rachel. Mini-conferences every month!"
Pat's book, Shadows of the Past is first of a three-book series from Revell due out February, 2014
Kimberly Buckner says, "I like the Thursday live chats. They focus not just on how to write, but how to write better. It's a good chance to refresh on topics I've previously studied, or see examples of how the experts would handle the tough parts of a manuscript. I also enjoy the daily blog for everything from interviews with heroes, to Reba's encouragement. I don't know how she always says just the right thing, but she does. She must be real tight with Big G. The checklists are great too, since I may not need to fine tune Storyworld right this second, but I will eventually, and I know where I can go for resources. And the retreat discounts are pretty solid."
Kimberly won the Touched by Love contest with her second manuscript, written after joining MBT. She is on her 3rd manuscript.
