  7. Love your website. Wish I could be there but too far to walk.

  8. Eleanor Hancock

    Finally looking at the website. Wow !!

  9. I’m sorry I didn’t show up — I RSVP-ed at the last meeting. I’ve been sick a while, & didn’t want to pass it on.

    Also, I still haven’t managed to pay the membership fee. I’d like to get in touch with someone about that.

    November brings in a whole new year with surprises and successes ahead of us. Our 2012/2013 Board wishes you all well. May you have many great ideas and even some that are recorded. Yesterday is our past, and how will anyone know if we forget to record it.
    I will miss the meeting in November but look forward to getting together in December at the Social.
    Until then, keep writing, dreaming and making those wishes come true.
    Dana Ramstedt, President, The Interior Authors Group

  13. Hi, if this group is still active I would love to attend the next meeting as I’ve just moved to Kamloops, Erin

    • Hi Erin, You met about half of the members at Chartwell RidgePoint at the Interior Author’s Group – Christmas Social. Welcome! We would love it if you would do a presentation for us one day. We look forward to meeting you again on January 8th 2015 at 6;30 at the Kamloops Art Gallery – Tricia Selmer Room at 465 Victoria. If you want to go a bit early get in touch with me and I will bring you with me. I would love to exchange thoughts about both of our books.
      Fern Hinse – President – Interior Authors Group
