    How nice to hear from you. I will try to get to the Sonoma County book faire and look you up. I am in 2 writing groups and will take a 6 week memoir class at S.S. starting this week.
    I wrote a story last week and thought of you. Someday I might send you a copy of my piece. It still needs a little more editing.
    See you soon, I hope,

    I am looking for an author in Marin County who is interested in writing my story. Everyone who knows my story says “You should write a book about your life”!

  • Hope to see some of you at the panel today at Book Passage!

    Hi, Renee,
    You’re looking for a ghost writer and a co-author? I recommend California Writers Club— members of the Marin branch meet at Book Passage in Corte Madera; Redwood branch meet in Santa Rosa. Go to http://www.Calwriters.org and click on branch info. My best wishes to you! Sincerely, Writing Career Coach Teresa

  • Hi Teresa,

    Sorry you couldn’t make it yesterday to the CWC Author Panel on Publishing. We had a great turnout, and Tanya did a great job as moderator. The questions from the audience were mainly about advice on independent publishing and what’s happening with eBooks. Each of the panelist had a different experience to share and based on the feedback, I think attendees were quite pleased with the information shared.

    In the ever-changing world of publishing, it’s important to keep up with recent developments and trends. We authors all need to stay “plugged in” in order to use our time and resources effectively.

    All the best,
    Judith Marshall
    Author of “Husbands May Come and Go but Friends are Forever,” optioned for the big screen.
