Finding Your Own Unique Voice – Pikes Peak Writers


Finding Your Own Unique Voice
Tuesday, August 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Sometimes you just have to break the rules. That’s what former Colorado resident and first-time author Deborah Coonts discovered on the way to becoming an “overnight success.” Join us for our August Write Brain as Deb tells us how she used her own strengths—her wicked humor and off-beat view of the world–to create Lucky O’Toole, the in-charge but vulnerable heroine in her first Las Vegas adventure, Wanna Get Lucky? She’ll also show us how to find our own unique voices, and once we’ve found them, how to position our novels in the marketplace.

About Deborah:
Deborah Coonts is proof positive that sex sells and persistence pays off. A Texas girl, she spent years being someone else—an accountant, a business owner, a lawyer and a pilot. But through it all she wrote. After two practice novels and a humor column, she wrote Wanna Get Lucky?, the first in a series published by Forge Books–think Sex in the City meets Elmore Leonard in Vegas. Sexy, wry, romantic and slightly naughty, mixed with a little mayhem, Lucky is taking the publishing world by storm. Watch out, Janet Evanovich!
Nonmembers may attend one Write Brain session for free. Subsequent sessions are $10.
Write Brain Sessions are held at Cottonwood Center for the Arts, 427 E. Colorado Avenue, Studio A. Visitor’s parking is in the large lot on the east side of the Cottonwood building.

If you would like to participate in any Write Brain session, PLEASE RSVP AND INCLUDE YOUR DAYTIME CONTACT INFORMATION. This does not commit you to attending, but enables us to prepare enough materials for expected attendees, and importantly, it gives us a way to contact you if we have an emergency change to the Write Brain session, such as a postponement due to weather. We will make every attempt to post changes to the PPW Yahoo loop and our Web site, but to be ensured of notification you must RSVP to
