Eckley Guerin, the “West by Northwest” adventure series book editor, has announced the advancement from associate editor to co-editor of Pat Williams. New Technical Editor Bobbi Brice is another addition to this all-volunteer staff, and Art Editor Lori Andriesian now has the help of Becky Hart. Copies of Volume I may be purchased for $20 at Salon Verve and at Custom Threads, both on Commercial Street in Astoria. An early spring publication date is planned for Volume II, and the editors are still seeking story submissions from the local community. The deadline for submissions has been extended to March 18. Writers are encouraged to inform Pat Guerin at (503) 325-8850 if they are working on a story and/or need help. Writers may also email completed or nearly-completed stories to Pat Williams at, or mail them to West by Northwest, 415 Harrison Ave., Astoria, OR 97103. Submissions should include a photo of the story situation, its location or the author, and an author’s autobiography of up to a half page. Profits from both Volume I and II of “West by Northwest” will benefit the Clatsop County food banks and animal shelters.
