  • This looks like an interesting group. Do you participate on the site? Sounds like there will be a lot of great info during the week. Thanks for sending it on.

    • I’ve taken a few of the workshops. They’re fast and easy to follow and full of information. It’s also a good way to network with other romance writers. I actually like the deconstruction workshops. I don’t have a paid membership yet because I don’t have time to take full advantage of it but I may sign up in the future.

  • DS

    It sounds like there will be something for everyone during this week. No doubt many will find this information helpful. Just imagine, by passing this information along, you might inform and nudge the next great indie author. Wouldn’t that be cool?! Wouldn’t that be even cooler if it was you or someone you know!?

    • I won’t be me, for sure. I’m no where near ready to be published, but I can’t wait for Linda to launch her debut. I think Natasha is closer than I am too.

  • Oh, this looks interesting! Thanks for the heads-up, Dayner. Is this primarily for romance writers? I’d love to learn more — I’m following Cathryn and Linda and their progress vicariously and with a cheerleading megaphone and pom-poms.

    I’m nowhere near finishing and publishing anything long — but I’m toying with trying to pull together a collection of shorts and get them out, more for the experience of going through the whole process than anything else.

    It’s gotta warm up some first though. I’m looking at the thermometer out on the deck — 22!! Of course, it’s 15 degrees colder – and lots of snow – in Boston so I’m not packing up to move back.

    But watch out, DS, especially if you are actually growing stuff right now. I may be on your doorstep one of these days if it doesn’t warm up here!

    • I don’t think this is only for romance writers but I sure it will lean that way.
      It’s a balmy 70 degrees here, beautiful and sunny! Sorry I can’t share it with you.
