      Going to a nature center, a crafts fair, mountain saunters, anything where that interaction is experienced live.

      Hi Brian, Sorry we missed you. We do meet only during the day. We also have been meeting only every other month. I work from home and the evening is so busy with kids and activities that lunch time once every other month is actually easier to schedule than evening time. You are welcome to join the Google group and try to connect with people through that venue. Everyone writes different types of books so its best if you can tell us what you are working on or interested in and people can let you know if they are working on something similar and would like to work together in some form or facet. We don't do as much critique but we do work on marketing, cross promotion and general how to get out there as an artist.

    Thanks, Lillian, for doing this, though I must have missed the first post about it. Just found out about it five minutes ago. Am about 1/2 done with the Dr. Crankenfuss Humor Book for Guys.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
