I want to thank all the writers who attended my writers' workshop on Saturday, "Insider Secrets to Publishing your First Novel". We had a great turnout for a good cause-- Camden Friends Building Fund. I hope that everyone who attended left with a few tidbits of information they can use to take that next step in getting their book published. I had a great time talking with everyone. Is there anything better than a room full of writers?
As we were leaving, someone asked me the one book on writing I would recommend. There are many great books out there, but I would say read Stephen King's On Writing. I think a 10th anniversary edition was just released.
And while you're there (warning, shameless plug alert) take a look at Just Like Other Daughters. I'm getting great reviews, which I have to confess thrills me. I've been writing all these years and suddenly I'm getting noticed. It's little bit like going to the senior prom in a pretty dress . . . after you get your braces off. See Andi's review on Bringing the Sunshine. Andi has a son, Nathan, with Down syndrome, so her positive review of my book means a lot to me. I'm so glad I was able to share the essence of my Chloe with readers.
And now, after a week of preparing for the workshop, and promoting Just Like Other Daughters, it's back to work, doing what writers do. Write.
Happy Veteran's Day!!
