MEMBERS' NEWS
The SFR Brigade will be participating in the SFR Holiday Blitz this year.  The event begins Monday morning, December 20th and lasts until December 26th with free books to be awarded on December 27th.

Mark your calendar and stay tuned.

NEW COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER NEEDED!
December 27th, 2010 will be my last week of posting Hailing On All Frequencies! Due to time contraints, I'm signing off as chief collater and information gatherer for this weekly round-up.
If any Brigader would like to take over this commission (feel free to use the same format if you like) then please contact Laurie Green and she'll happily let you take your place on the bridge at the communications station.
Thank you to everyone who's sent in information and snippets - it's been a pleasure promoting SFR and our Brigaders!
Kylie Griffin - Comms Officer

INFORMATION OF INTEREST
Dear Author has an interesting little discussion about the kinds of author promotions that work and don't work, and some readers weighed in on what works for them in the comment thread.

A very helpful post called Through the Plot Hole over at The Ruby Slippered Sisterhood focuses on techniques to help you fix holes in your plot. Worth a read!
