We are meeting at my home at 17 Church Hill Road, Redding, CT. Please email me at [masked] what you are making. I'm making a chicken dish.
Appetizers, salad or vegetables would be ideal to add.
On Friday, June 21st at 7 pm we will meet on my home and review 25 pages of your manuscript. BRING ENOUGH COPIES for EACH PERSON. We will give you honest feedback.

We will discuss: marketing plans (Get Known Before the Book Deal), social media sites,

and how to connect with the right literary agents. If you care to bring your query letter make enough copies for each person as well. Bring one dish of food so we can have dinner together as well. Any questions: Email me at [masked].

    Thank you for welcoming me to this group. I have a manuscript but need to edit it some more. How many will be attending...so I can make a big enough salad.

    June 17, 2013

  • Jenny D.

    Looking forward to meeting fellow writers and exchanging ideas and sharing experiences...

  • Jan K.

    Remember to check how many people are attending so you xerox enough copies of your 25 pages of your ms. If you rather bring a query letter for comments, do so. We will also be discussing marketing plans and I will give you a sample. Best to you! See you FRIDAY! Jan

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
