Hello from Tracey M. Cox, new Web Master

Working Behind the Scenes

Hello everyone. I'm Tracey M. Cox and have recently volunteered to become webmaster for Southern Breeze. I'm already the Local Liaison for South Georgia (Ocilla, Tifton area).

 I've been writing professionally for 15+ years now. Now that I'm back in SCBWI, I feel I will be more prepared for whatever challenges await me.

I know that volunteering and working behind the scenes can be a rewarding experiences. I like to think of  it as gardening. It's nice to smell pretty flowers and admire them. BUT, getting your hands dirty, planning, planting, nourishing, and tending a garden. Then seeing your hard work come to fruition. It's an amazing experience. 

I'm up for challenges.  :) 

What's in store for me as a volunteer?

  • I hope to help others through their writing experiences. I know I've had some great people give me advice I still take to heart. 
  • I plan on having a small smooze later this year for the South Georgia area. So get ready SoGA Peeps!  :)  
  • I am gathering a list of people who would like to guest blog for us OR have an announcement OR event OR or or or... Give me a jingle! We want to celebrate with you.  Email me at: with the subject line: SB Blog Post
  • I am honing my web craft and stepping into the web master role. I feel like a grass-hoppah! *please tell me you got that joke*


What am I doing with my career?

I'm steadily writing, reading, and blogging. I have a four books scheduled to be published this year. I have six picture books published and continue marketing with them. I'm also booking school visits, and planning for the fourth Books Love & Taters Book Festival (non-SCBWI) in October. Plus I have a blog with Summer Sparks Writing Challenge, and I help with KidLit.TV.  I'm very excited to be in the fold of Southern Breeze once again.

Here's to celebrating each of your accomplishments!
