Hot Flash Mommas at Go Red for Women

Sedalia, MO. The Go Red for Women event will take place Saturday February 26, 11 AM to 2 PM, at the Sedalia Country Club. Linda Fisher, Mozark Press, will sign copies of A Shaker of Margaritas: Hot Flash Mommas. Fisher edited the book of twenty-five captivating stories about women living the adventure of mid-life. Fisher's award-winning story in the book, "New Identity," is set in Sedalia.

Go Red for Women is a fundraising event for women's heart health research. The event will feature a luncheon and symposium with keynote speaker Marcia L. McCoy, director of Saint Luke’s Muriel I. Kaufman Women’s Heart Center in Kansas City, a fashion show, an apron auction and booths.

"Every woman should be concerned about heart health," Fisher said, "but especially those of us who have reached or exceeded the hot flash momma age. Like the Go Red for Women event, the anthology is a fun way to celebrate being a woman."

Hot Flash Mommas is available from Mozark Press at,  at, (e-book only), and select independent bookstores, including Sedalia Book and Toy.

Cougar Stories Wanted for Anthology

Good Morning Writers,

Have you written your "cougar" story for A Shaker of Margaritas: Cougars on the Prowl? Mozark Press has issued a call for submissions for intriguing stories between 1,500 – 3,500 words. The protagonist should be a boomer (born between 1946-1964) and the story must allude to a "cougar" interest. 

Don't go for the obvious, but look for a unique take on the older woman/younger man flirtation or relationship. Stories with layers, unusual scenarios, and just good storytelling will have the best chance of being included in the anthology.

Don't delay! Deadline is March 1, 2011.

Vist for complete guidelines.
