“ Charlotte - You're doing a heroic job pulling this organization together. Simply finding the time and wherewithall to get the speakers must be immensely time and energy consuming. I applaud you. You are doing a magnificent job. I think the organization is providing a valuable service, and even those of us who have not yet finished a "product" are getting a lot out of the group presentations. I imagine she puts a great deal of time and energy into planning meetings and getting presenters. She might consider asking for member help for some of the chores. I give her 5 stars *****. ”

“ What an excellent concept! As a former member of RWA, which is totally against self-publishing in any form, I found this to be a refreshing and supportive group. Self-publishing is like a leap into the dark...finding other folks leaping as well is encouraging. Being able to learn from their experiences and knowing there is a network of support for one's self-publishing endeavor has certainly brightened my perspective. I'll be excited to further participate and now feel that, even at my age, there is a good future for my writing efforts! ”
