The League of Scribes

Writers and publishing professionals of all stripes and experience levels are invited to join the league. Send us an email with a link to your website, blog (that concerns itself mostly with writing), Poets & Writers page, publisher’s hosted page, page (about you, not me), or Amazon author’s page. One link per customer.

Christine Elizabeth Eldin (1966-2012) was an aspiring middle grade author. Her passion for learning and for sharing her knowledge with young people inspired her to earn a master’s degree in education and dedicate her life to writing young adult literature. She co-founded “Book Roast,” an online book promotion site that spotlighted the recent releases of dozens of authors. She also maintained a popular blog and actively supported her community of fellow writers.

Numerous tributes to Chris are posted online, including this one by the Valley’s founder. When you join the League you not only join a writing community, you honor a gentle spirit whose footprints still guide us.
