Are you writing fiction or non-fiction?

Fiction, but also updating earlier non-fiction published work.

Are you in marketing, a literary agent or interested in speaking to the group?

No, but would welcome genuine interest from real agent or publisher. I'm too old to wait for gatekeepers, and my work is too good for vanity presses. So my fiction is self-published by choice.

What do you most hope to get out of this group?
