Are you an author or aspiring author?

I am a published author of numerous short stories and in the past I have sold novel-length fiction in the past.

Are you interested in writing, publishing and marketing your book?

All of the above.

What kind of writing interests you—fiction, non-fiction or both?

My keen interests usually involve what I want to bring into my writing, so while I love fiction, I also read a lot of histories, religious texts, and philosophy. Investing in knowledge outside of your chosen medium offers tremendous growth for a writer.

Are you currently working on a book?

Yes, several.

Have you published or self-published a book?

I am a professionally published author who intends to branch out into hybrid-publishing.


My name is Jay Requard, and I am a Heroic Fantasy and Sword & Sorcery author from Charlotte, North Carolina.

What Jay R. is saying about this Meetup Group

One of the best groups available to writers in the Charlotte Area, Gail Z. Martin gives truly great advice about writing, publishing, and creates a tremendous atmosphere for those who any skill level. I recommend this group to anyone who is serious about their passion and pursuit of their craft.
