Hello there! Can't wait to get to know folks and hopefully learn, learn learn.   I'm fairly new to the fiction writing business.  Have two children's books self published on Amazon and doing ok.  Have two romances that should be out by the end of May this year and I've been researching and plotting a thriller series that I will get to as soon as I finish the other projects.  I was a jounalist for a few years and hated it, found it stiffled my creativity and it took me a while to get past that to start writing again.  Love my local writers group and the short stories (assignments... lol) have helped get me back on track.

This is for me. I have been just told by a writer who has had 6 novels published that I am a beginning writer. OK. I'm working on a few. Brycan's Wood.Circle Of Two. No Tears In Manhattan, and A Winter Diva. I guess I should finish something.

Welcome, ALL new members! For you seasoned vets, dive in on comments and discussions...I'm only tossing out questions I get from reading this site or from my reading group, figuring I can't be the only who's head is spinning...or, at least I hope not! *giggle* Glad to have you all here!

Jan Carol,

Oh cool! I've had 2 novellas published under my pen name, but this wip will be my first go at trying to finish and send out my novel to publishers. Any input you give will be greatly valued.
