Pennsylvania (September 29, 2008) –My Light Magazine announces a new member of the My Light Team. Jaclyn Morales has been named assistant editor and will assist with submissions and planning of the magazine. She is a current student at the Institute of Children’s Literature and holds a BS in Journalism from St. John’s University. “When I was a kid I used to make imaginary newspapers,” Ms. Morales states. “I used to hand write, draw, and circulate it around my house. So it wasn’t a shock that I went for a BS in Journalism.”
Ms. Morales is excited to join us here at My Light Magazine. “The thing I love the best is that I get to merge many passions into My Light – my faith (I have attended catholic school from grade school through college) and writing for children. I get to teach children to love to read and love God as well.”
My Light Magazine looks forward to working with Jaclyn Morales. Author submissions should be sent to her at . For content suggestions, please visit .

A Star in the Night Has an Illustrator!!

I'm thrilled to announce the illustrator of A Star in the Night, a picture book that follows a young boy through a mystical Christmas Eve. The joyful story will be illustrated by John Blackford, a talented illustrator who always seems to keep busy with one project or another. Take a look at his blog and check out some of his work. Don't just look at the pictures - he has links, trailers, comics, you name it.

I'm ecstatic to have such a talented illustrator work on A Star in the Night. Stay tuned, as I'm sure there will be more to update soon.

The excitement is brewing for all the Musers!

If you've been looking for professional writing tips, I'm sure you're one of the many authors that signed up for the Muse Online Writer's Conference. Once again I signed up for many, many workshops.

One would think my eyes are bigger than my brain if they saw the list I signed up for. The truth is, all these workshops are invaluable. Some of the info you pick up there are things you'd learn in a paid writing class. (And the perks! Don't forget about the perks!) Just about every workshop offers some type of benefit, whether it be a deeper knowledge of the industry or drawings for free stuff. You just never know what you're walking in to. Hope to see you there.
