Alexandra, Delighted to have you in the novelist group. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

Meg Waite Clayton
Novelist Group Moderator
Author of The Wednesday Sisters (a nationally bestselling writing group novel) and the forthcoming The Wednesday Daughters (Random House/Ballantine)
