This Meetup is for people who are actively writing books on a professional basis. You should have published at least one book, or have an agent, or have a contract to write a book. Our goal's to critique chapters-in-progress, discuss style and organization, and share info on contracts, publicity, social media, and other business aspects of book authorship. Genres can be either fiction or nonfiction; the important part is mutual aid on wrangling projects in the 100,000-word range.
