We went to the last March Write In Wednesday and heard a presentation from Vicki Delaney, who publishes a series of murder mysteries through Poisoned Pen Press. Her stories are set in a small Canadian town in British Columbia.
As part of her book tour, promoting her newest book, Valley of the Lost, she was going to the Four-eyed Frog the following Friday!
Vicki was a good speaker; a little reserved, with a dry sense of humor. She offered several good suggestions for submitting a novel, and for marketing.
I can’t say enough good things about these library-sponsored events. This was a great way to jump-start your writing. Our librarian was a great help and an enthusiastic participant in the lecture and q&a sessions.
The main Santa Rosa library also opens the rotunda room on Mondays in November, as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWRiMo). I’m looking forward to attending some of those events too.
