“ I'm shocked at the low numbers. Thouhgt I was going to meet more people, but hopefully that will change as it grows. I do plan on going to all the meet ups. I'm here not just because my passion is writing, I'm here because I have put a vision to my passion, and that vision is a book I have been working on for five years. I am very proud of this book, but the hardest part is getting other people excited about it too. By getting much needed feed back from the orlando science fiction and fantasy writers, it will help me immensely, not only with the book itself, but with me being able to sell it to others, for them to see my vision and understand it. I find the more I explain my story to others, the more I understand it myself. For me that's the best part of going to this meet up group, learning how to pitch my story, the more I do this, the more I understand how to sum up my book in one or two sentences, so I think these meet up groups are awesome. Looking forward to the next one. ”
