Welcome to the annual  Spellbinders lunch, which actually ended up to be dinner this time around. It's the end of the year and we were all having difficulty finding a time to get together. The story of our lives lately. Carolee and Kim met up at the Flying Star and Caroline met us later at Alamosa Books.

We have loved sharing our stories and inspirations with you these past few years, but we have found it necessary to discontinue our Spellbinders Newsletter. Sadly, this will be our last issue. We are all so busy with our writing projects and our book travels that we've had to find ways to cut back our commitments.

The good news is that we will each be continuing our own individual author newsletters with some special offerings. Carolee will be creating more resources for educators and is giving a free online summer writing course beginning June 14. If you tried to sign up previously, it unfortunately didn't go through due to changes in Yahoo policies, so please try again HERE for Carolee's Newsletter and Writing Workshop.

If you don't get a follow up confirmation from MailChimp, contact Carolee directly by EMAIL.

Kim has an exciting new book, FORBIDDEN, coming out this fall and has tons of giveaways planned. Sign up here for Kim's Newsletter.

Caroline is working on the final stages of her new historical verse novel, BLUE BIRDS, coming March 2015 as well as awaiting final art for her first picture book, OVER IN THE WETLANDS, coming fall 2015.

She has recently started a newsletter which will publish 3-4 times a year. Sign up here to follow. Other ways to keep in touch include her website, blog, Facebook page, and Twitter.

We are also sad to announce that Alamosa Books, Albuquerque's only book store catering specifically to children and teens, is closing. They are currently offering a 30% discount on all books and merchandise, so stop on by.

Farewell to all of you. We have thoroughly enjoyed the last few years. New adventures await!!
