Bucerias and IWSG news

In case you've missed what's been happening at your IWSG website this New Year, we've had some exciting guest hosts in January and February. February 11th, Alexander Slater, Literary Agent wrote about publishing in the international market. I'll be there Monday February 16th, talking about the importance of up-to-date research. Elizabeth S. Craig, scheduled for the 25th will give thoughts on being a hybrid writer, and on March 11th, Dianna Gunn will discuss the merits of internship.

Hope to see you there.

Meanwhile, since I can't say enough about Bucerias, thought I'd spare you my ramblings and let the photographs speak for themselves:

  1. You are so rubbing it in as we huddle by our fireplaces while it's below zero outside.

  9. Marbles has that lady-like pose down to a science.

    So colorful. I'd have so much fun taking photos there. Especially of the iguanas.

    1. Henry's such a noble character, Joy. He sticks his head when the coast is clear and bobs up and down. It's fun to watch. I step one foot outside and he's racing for cover. Big chicken, really.
