LVRW - The Lengths We Go To w/Chris Marie Green

The general meeting begins at 10am, and the presentation begins at 10:30am and usually goes to around noon.

The Lengths We Go To

Presented by Chris Marie Green (AKA Crystal Green)

Using shorter stories has become a smart business move—and a way to quickly grab a new audience! But what is the difference between a short story, a novelette, a novella, and full-length books? How do you write an amazing shorter work that will give readers a taste of your other bigger stories? Join Chris Marie Green as she offers tips on how to make your short works pop!

Chris Marie Green is the author of Only the Good Die Young, the first book in the Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire series from Penguin/Roc, which features a fun-loving spirit from the ’80s. She also wrote the urban fantasy Vampire Babylon series from Ace Books as well as The She Code, a “geek lit”/chick lit/new adult hybrid with comic book art work by Billy Martinez of Neko Press Comics.

She tries her best to avoid international incidents whenever she takes a break from her first love, writing, and cheats on it with her other true love—traveling. She has alter egos named Christine Cody, who wrote the dark fantasy Bloodlands trilogy, and Crystal Green, who likes to write romance, especially the new Rough and Tumble series.

    I took Chris's world building class through RWA University last year and it was phenomenal. I'm looking forward to her insights on short stories and novellas.
