    The info for the 2010 conference looks great so far. Only one problem for me…. no info I can find that explains which airport to fly into in order to get to the conference. And how to get to the resort from the sirport. How the heck do I get to the conference? Fly into Phoenix and rent a car? Is there a van? Am I missing something on the WLA website or on this blog? Does Flagstaff have an airport?

      There will be something posted soon on the WLA website about flight options. There are airports in Phoenix and Flagstaff, and a small airport in Prescott. There will be shuttle service from Phoenix to Prescott (but I’m not sure whether or not that will be the case for the other two). More information will be forthcoming (soon).

    The 2011 conference is in Missoula, Montana. I’m not sure yet about the dates.

    Kindle Western Fiction ebooks by John Warren Self

    I am the author of a number of Kindle ebooks. I was raised in the United States in the East. My background is mostly applied sciences. That explains why I wrote some science fiction stories. When I finished college, I spent a few years in New York City. Then I traveled west staying in a few places for a short while. Then I went to the San Francisco Bay for a number of years. I lost my soul mate there; she dated back to my college days. Finally, I ended up on the east coast of North-central Florida.

    I write several types fiction in my way including Western Fiction. Some of the stories have a true premise. The other ones come from an idea or even a nightmare or dream. Please give my work a read.
