Holiday Meet and Greet

How about a meet and greet, with some goodies where everyone brings their books, info and promos, and we all introduce ourselves, and just have some good one to one discussion with others, while downing a libation and some cookies. Everyone brings either drink (wine probably best) and/or goodies and have some holiday cheer!

We scheduled this the week after Channukkah and before Christmas and Kwanzaa so everyone can attend! 

(Thanks Ruth, for the suggestion!)


Thanks Greg P. for the suggestion for a location!

    This was a good get together. I met many people that I didn't have the chance to meet before. In this informal gathering I got to share some ideas and gather some new ones that might be important to me as I continue toward my goal of getting published. Thanks for the input guys!

    Thanks to Big Apple Books for hosting our "Meet and Greet". Check out this place, the selection of books, vinyl, and DVDs is not to be believed. So glad that Jason came and joined us (and Bob) and also Nathan, Gio and Colleen's new son (a well behaved young man for sure!) Thanks to everyone else who came as well. Good food, good drink, good conversation. Happy Holidays to all.

    Hi Everyone,

    Just got back from the party. It was a fun time. I got to talk to a lot of people that I didn't get to meet before. Hey Gio, your baby Nathan looked wonderful. Lots of luck to you and Colleen. I hope I talked you out of going for a full football team. A basketball team of little Gio's is much more manageable. If you get crazy you can always try for a 6th man off the bench! Happy Holidays.

    Hi Kristen. When you say "Debuting does that mean no one has ever tasted these cup cakes before? Are we entering a "scary taste Zone?"
    Should I be afraid or Very Afraid. Hey this is Christmas! Bring 'em on I'm up for it.
    All the best

      Lol, that was great! And Yes, you'll be entering the "Best Cake You've Never Tasted" Zone. Looking forward to it! Plus, I take requests, lol.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! :-)

    And for the December meeting, I will be out of town so I hope to meet you in January, for the new year.

    I have a question, though. For our regular meetings, do we meet the first or second Thursday of every month? Thanks!

      So by new leadership do you mean new people leading this group, not you? Thanks.

    Did anyone contact Big apple Books to see if that location would work?

    November 12, 2013

  • Ed P.

    Will look forward to attending. Can help out with the vino, but no ideas on location...sorry.

    My friend owns a book store in Fort Lauderdale BIG APPLE BOOKS on Federal Highway (5461 N Federal). I rang him this afternoon and mentioned the event and he sounded very interested in possibly offering his store as a location. I'll send a private note to the organizers.

      That would be so great.

    Seems like a good idea. We don't talk to each other enough. Classes on writing, while important to the learning process, cuts out all the time we have to see who is using what elements in their own writing. Someone might have some additional information that the "teacher" is missing. Count me 'IN" Elliot
