First of all, please take some care in answering these questions. We really do consider them when approving membership. Thanks! What genre(s) of books do you write?

Non-fiction, YA, science technical, memoir.

Is it (are they) ready to self-publish now? (Either a new book, or a traditionally-published book that you now own the copyright to).

Yes, no, and almost.

Do you have any experience self-publishing? If yes, what tools, technologies, services, have you used?

Not really.

Have you published traditionally? If so, please describe.

I have a column on a popular website, if that counts:

Do you have any expertise to offer this group - editing, book design, web design, SEO, social media marketing, ebook formatting, etc.)?

Nothing regarding formal training. I have marketed my own business for ~ 20 years, so I may have a little insight there.


I'm a college instructor and wildlife biologist, and am trying to find time to finish and publish several very different books.

What Renee O. is saying about this Meetup Group

I know each writer's meetup is different and serves a different purpose, but overall I have received the most benefit from this particular one. Laid back yet informative, interesting, practical, and always new things to learn and share. Looking forward to the next one!
