One Commentto Thank You!

  1. George Matthews says:

    My wife and I have attended numerous writer’s conferences and felt the organization of the SWFWW was excellent. Currently in Las Cruces, we plan to move to Silver City next summer(2014).We also would like to offer to be participates in the next SWFWW. I am a narrative non-fiction writer(American West and sport history)with four published books. My wife,a professional indexer,is interested in speaking about how an author finds an indexer.

    Sincerely,
    George R. Matthews
