With the New Year come new opportunities. This week I've been invited to discuss my book and writing process with readers at a local book club. I've done readings before, but this will be my first in such a small, private setting. I'm looking forward to connecting more intimately with these individuals who love to read, not only to find out what they think of my novel, but to "chat literature" in general.
Next week on Wednesday 1/21/15 from 6-9 p.m., I'll be participating in the Women's Rural Entrepreneurial Network (W.R.E.N.) Eureka Writers Night at the St. Johnsbury, VT Athenaeum. This event is open to the public, and the audience is encouraged to participate in the discussion. A panel of successful local writers– Beth Kanell (author, The Secret Room), Reeve Lindbergh (author No More Words and Under a Wing), Jennifer Mackenzie (author, The Spare Room), and Neil Raphael (book acquistion, Brigantine Media)– will offer their expertise toward creative problem solving the business challenges of myself and three other author-entrepreneurs. I have the pleasure of already knowing each of the panelists, so it will be like getting sage advice from friends.
Knowing others share your story always helps!
