I’ve always been a big believer in writers joining writer’s groups. There’s a lot to be said for hanging around folks who do what you do. Not only do other writers (published and pre-published) “get” the writer’s life but they are such a great source of inspiration and knowledge. This past weekend ended up being a double header meeting-wise. I drove to Bethesda, Maryland for the Washington Romance Writers meeting featuring guest speaker Sue Grimshaw of Borders Books. Sue was a delight and offered great marketing tips. After WRW I hurried down the road to attend the November Sisters in Crime meeting. Published chapter members got a chance to talk about and sign copies of their latest release. Since my next book, DYING SCREAM, won’t be out for a couple of more weeks, I signed copies of I’M WATCHING YOU and DEAD RINGER. Next weekend: Virginia Romance Writers.
