Enjoy an afternoon with your fellow writers this March to reflect on the hard work of 2014 and imagine everything ahead of us in this brand new year!
Join us to hear speaker Dorothy McFalls and help celebrate the accomplishments of LRWA members in 2014.
Laura Stone, Senior Editor for Entangled Publishing, LLC, will discuss common manuscript pitfalls—including POV issues, missing pieces in the romance arc, and what makes a character unlikeable—and how to avoid them to improve your chances of publishing.
Please RSVP to Emmanuelle Nesbit Murray if you are planning to attend. In addition, Ms. Stone will be taking pitches by appointment after the meeting.
Please indicate that you would like to pitch your MS to Ms. Stone in your RSVP.
Please note that the May meeting is the 5th Saturday this month, due to the Memorial Day Holiday weekend.

Kindle Scout is less that eighteen months old. What do you need to know about this alternative to self-publishing that crosses American Idol with traditional book publishing and rewards winners with a Kindle Press contract plus Amazon sales and marketing?
Presented by James Jackson
James M. Jackson (Jim) authors the crime novels featuring financial crime expert Seamus McCree. ANT FARM, chronologically first in the series, won a Kindle Scout nomination and was published by Kindle Press in 2015. BAD POLICY won the Evan Marshall Fiction Makeover Contest whose criteria were the freshness and commerciality of the story and quality of the writing. Jim has also published CABIN FEVER, third in the Seamus McCree series, ONE TRICK AT A TIME: How to start winning at bridge, an acclaimed book on contract bridge, and numerous short stories and essays.
