Upcoming Events

Monthly Meeting–Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014 Ellen and Jeremy Pollreisz of PixelTwister Studio to Speak on The Basic Do’s and Don’ts of Book Trailers


Ellen and Jeremy Pollreisz of PixelTwister Studio will discuss the essential principles behind what makes a good book trailer. It will be a lively presentation with videos and lots of energy. “Ask us questions and at the end of the program we’ll announce an exciting opportunity.”

We’re a team made up of author and trained character animator. Together, word motion is our passion making book trailers a natural fit.

Jeremy Pollreisz is the Creative Director, specializing in videos that use dynamic typography. His creative energy is like Old Faithful on constant burst. He needs to share.

Ellen Pollreisz is an author whose mission is to help readers challenge the absolutes they carry around. She’s also obsessed with the process. “Screw results. Show me how you got there.” Which makes her the perfect partner in creating book trailers. Think details.

We believe everyone has a story to tell. What’s popular changes, but personal truth and passion is always en vogue.

We make stories come alive.

We’ll be in the Frisco Room at The Library Station on N. Kansas Expressway in Springfield, MO.

Join our critique group from 10 a.m. to Noon. Want your work reviewed by talented writers and published authors? Bring twenty copies of up to five pages of your work to share for critique or just listen and offer advice.


Monthly Meeting–Saturday, November 1, 2014

The Frisco Room at The Library Station, 2535 N. Kansas Expressway, Springfield, MO

Critique group at 10:00 a. m. followed by lunch at Panera and our speaker at 1:00 p.m.


We are delighted to present novelist Lori Copeland!

Lori will share “I Meant To Tell You That” with Ozarks Romance Authors, a group that she helped launch in 1987. Her interactive presentation will be at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 1, 2014, at The Library Station in Springfield, Missouri.
Lori is the author of more than 100 titles, both historical and contemporary fiction. With more than 3 million copies of her books in print, she has developed a loyal following among her rapidly growing fans in the inspirational market. She has been honored with the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award, The Holt Medallion, and Walden Books’ Best Seller award. In 2000, Lori was inducted into the Missouri Writers Hall of Fame.

Lori began her writing career in 1982, writing for the secular book market. In 1995, after many years of writing, Lori sensed that God was calling her to use her gift of writing to honor Him. It was at that time that Lori began writing for the Christian book market.

A complete list of Lori’s books is available here: http://static.squarespace.com/static/529a2ef4e4b0c313de2734b2/t/529ba5f4e4b0c971f8fa7ff3/1385932276096/completelistofbooks.pdf

Monthly Meeting–Saturday, December 6, 2014

*** We’re Starting At NOON Today, Not Our Usual 1:00 p.m. ***

Ozarks Romance Authors’ Christmas party is a BLAST each year! Mark your calendar now so you don’t forget.

Rather than having a guest speaker at our 1:00 meeting, we will start the fun at noon with a potluck lunch.

A Dirty Santa Gift Exchange will follow, and it’s always full of laughs and good-natured gift stealing.

Bring your favorite dish or dessert and a wrapped (or gift-bagged) gift in the $10 range for the game. The gift can be nice, silly, writing-related or not. Regifting is welcome. All we ask is that the gift be in good taste.
