"I am intrigued by your series and will look at it. What a clever premise. I love Billie Holiday but my favorite version of Gloomy Sunday is by Mel Torme, but his recording wasn't out during the time my book was set."

Welcome to the novelist group, Kathleen. 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
