A Pearlsong Conversation with author Judy Bagshaw

Join author Judy Bagshaw and me (Pearlsong Press publisher Peggy Elam, Ph.D.) in a free teleconference call at noon Eastern/11 a.m. Central on Wednesday, September 8, 2009 as we discuss Judy's books, how she came to write fat friendly romance, and other adventures in writing and publishing.

Judy is a retired elementary schoolteacher and writer in Southern Ontario, Canada. Much of her work features plus-sized characters leading rich and active lives, just as she does.

Judy is the author of At Long Last, Love, a collection of short stories featuring big beautiful heroines published by Pearlsong Press in 2007. The Pearlsong Press online store is also selling a few copies of out-of-print novels by Judy that were published by other small presses. Each copy has been autographed by Judy, See for more info or to purchase.

We'd love to hear from you! If you don't feel comfortable speaking up during the teleconference―which will be recorded―then email your questions or comments to me at peggyelam @

Email pearlsongconversations @ for the details (teleconference phone number & access code) and call the teleconference line at noon Eastern (11 a.m. Central) to listen and/or participate in the hour-long Conversation.

The line will handle up to 96 participants―first come, first served. There's no cost for the calls other than your usual long distance charges.

We are recording these Pearlsong Conversations and making them available for listening online or downloading after the calls. You can find links to the previous Conversation recordings on the Pearlsong Conversations webpage.

I hope I'll hear your voice―or at least you'll hear ours―on September 9!

In Joy,
