February 2, 2013 Monthly Meeting Speaker Tish Beaty, Editor of “Fifty Shades of Grey

Tish Beaty is making a name for herself not only as an author, but as an editor of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

She is represented by Louise Fury, who spoke at Ozarks Romance Authors’ 2011 conference. She is a contributor to the book “Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Join us at The Library Station (2535 North Kansas Expressway) in Springfield, Missouri, to hear about the phenomenon of “Fifty Shades of Grey” from someone who was there when it all began.

What can we learn from the success of this book that began as fan fiction and grew to become a best-seller? Visit Tish online at: http://www.TishBeaty.com/ https://www.facebook.com/beaty.graham.infopage?ref=ts&fref=ts
