Thanks for joining! What brings you to our group?

I've been writing a lot recently and just finished a first draft of a novel. This seems like a good way to get some impartial reviews so that I can polish it up and call it done.

What would you like to accomplish in your writing each month?

To get better each day and to learn about being a producer of literature instead of a simple consumer.

What is, or are the things that hold you back from your writing goals? When you write, do you write fiction, non-fiction? What categories does your writing land?

My job and family obligations are what hold me back from my writing goals. I feel like I don't have enough time in a day to pursue my dreams of being a published author.

As a condition of acceptance, to help Member Authors, are you willingto purchase one Member Title a month from Amazon, read it and review it? Yes or No?

I write fiction and my taste in fiction is like my taste in music. I will listen to just about anything but Rap and Country music and I will write just about anything, as long as I think there is a good story to be told.

Are you published? Have you published? Do you want to publish? Have you considered Self-Publishing?

The only thing I've published is my thesis work, and that was about 10 years ago in a scientific journal. I would like to publish my work, but don't feel like I have the time to self-publish.


I currently work at a pharmaceutical company doing a job I don't particularly like. Telling stories is way more fun than making drugs.
