The Best Throw-It-Together Stir Fry Ever

I tend to stir fry mostly with chicken, but this time I used frozen shrimp marinated in low sodium soy sauce, combined with sliced carrots, sliced green onions, snow peas and shredded spinach. It was colorful, tasty and very, very fast.

Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold Conference

Today I registered for this September conference in Denver and signed up to take one of the new master classes scheduled for Friday morning. I chose the attorney-taught session on copyright and contracts.

Did you know there's a contest associated with this conference? Unpublished novelists with a completed manuscript should take a look. The deadline is June 1st.

The Giveaway

Don't forget to leave a comment here for another entry in my 300 followers giveaway. If I get to 300 by Saturday evening, I'll give away one $25.00 gift certificate.
