Hello June

Welcome to SheWrites. You will love all the opportunities and support systems that SheWrites has to offer.  There are so many subgroups, or communities, that you can choose from as well, to meet your own particular needs.  Some of them, like our San Diego SheWrites group, actually meet in person and that has been a great experience for all of us.  I see from your profile that you and I have some similar interests. I am an author events coordinator who puts together unique Adventures by the Book, including two upcoming events that may be of special interest to you.  Check out my Yoga Writing Retreat Weekend and my Kafka 2012 European tour at www.adventuresbythebook.com.  All events have authors who actively participate, which makes the events special and so much more fun.  For example, I just took a group on an Adventure Under the Tuscan Sun where we had lunch with Frances Mayes, in Tuscany - so fun!  Anyway, just wanted to welcome you to the SheWrites community and congratulations on all your successful writing - your profile is very impressive!!
