Noteworthy Moments:



Will North shares a funny take on romance, murder, and large print. “[T]he books on [large print] shelves fall into only two literary genres: steamy romance novels and murder mysteries. What could explain this?”

Meredith Schorr stops by Women’s Fiction Writers to discuss her fear of the big 4.0. “Almost every book I’ve read about a woman in my age group focused on her early mid-life crisis…”

A warning to Restaurateurs: Don’t serve Paula Marie Coomer faux roasted beets!  “Do I sound spoiled? This is what happens when you primarily eat fresh food.”





Ina Zajac stops by the Writer 2.0 podcast to discuss the Booktrope business model, her debut novel—Please, Pretty Lights—and the writing process with A.C. Fuller.

There are few things in this world more valuable than a mentor who tells it like it is.  Kit Bakke shares her personal experience.
