  • Our Book Launchers make our conferences extra-special! This year, we weren't able to see our launchers in person but we can still be inspired by their stories to publication. We're bringing the Launchers to you via virtual communication! Thanks to Heather L. Montgomery, our PAL Coordinator, and to Zoom technology, we can enjoy the terrific talent here in Southern Breeze. Copy and paste the link below into your browser to see our extra-special launchers: https://zoom.us/rec/share/wNJcKIvZzmZOcrPMtRrfcKp6McPDT6a80CUc8_sLnx1qahxF6lRkH6mO4uX-C5Ip But wait! Here's a few more Launchers you don't want to miss, so copy and paste this link, too: https://zoom.us/rec/share/4dZ6d57900FJSKvU7UTbY4QfRIr3aaa823Id-6ZYy00NoHKJv-5b3OgMaTypBD0t   AND if you're interested in purchasing our Launchers' books, you might try Little Professor Book Center. They were the bookseller for wik'20 and they have lots of Southern Breeze books on hand, and will deliver straight to your door. See the Southern Breeze blog here for more details. Our indie-pubbed authors' books are available, too: TASTE YOUR WORDS by Bonnie Clark available here. LAILA AND THE SANDS OF TIME by Shirin Shamsi available here. THE ARROW AND THE CROWN by Emma Fox available here. JEREMIAH JUSTICE SAVES THE DAY by Melissa Miles available here.   Congratulations to all of our Southern Breeze Book Launchers wik'20 2.0!
