Professional Novelists' Workshop

What a busy weekend! On January 13-14, I attended the Professional Novelists’ Workshop hosted by my publisher, Bob Gelinas of ArcheBooks Publishing, Inc. (www.archebooks.com). Held at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Cape Coral, Florida, the event was attended by both aspiring and established authors. Over the course of two days, I was able to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

Some of the attendees included authors Prudy Taylor Board, Dr. Molly, Hawk MacKinney, Robert Dean Bair, and Penny Lauer, all ArcheBooks authors. Psychologist Liz Laquidara was also on hand to liven up the discussions. I met other nice folks, too, whose complete names I didn’t get and, therefore, can’t give here. I did get the pen name of one, Summer Breeze, a charming gal with blonde bangs and a sun chapeau. During the breaks, I hung out with my author-friends Sandy Lender (
www.todaythedragonwins.blogspot.com) and M. B. Weston (www.elysianchronicles.com), both of whom have fantasy novels which are about to be released by ArcheBooks.

During his talks, Publisher Bob shared lots of useful and hard-to-come-by info about the business of writing and publishing. He gave us numerous suggestions and tips for advancing our careers as professional novelists. I plan to use them to help promote my forthcoming romance novel, A Chance to Say Yes. Thanks, Bob!
