Kim, Thanks for "friending" me. How is the launch going? Be sure and keep us up to date! Nicky

Kim, Welcome to the Southern Writer's group and congratulations on your book. I will look forward to reading it. I loved your comments on Wanda's Book Blog about the book. Please introduce yourself to the group and join in on any discussions or start one yourself. This group will be a good place to start getting the buzz out. I'm working on setting up a forum or panel of some kind so that authors like yourself can showcase their work for the group. If you have any thoughts about how to do that please feel free to jump in. Best to you, Nicky

Welcome to She Writes, Kim. And congrats on the soon-to-be-published book. Quite a few novelists here. You might join us in the "Novelists - Struggling or Not" group.

Hope you'll enjoy the conversation here. Do feel free to ping me if you have any questions as you make your way around the site.

Best,

"Hi Jan, I agree that there is a beauty to "slow" writing, and franky no-one ever accuses me of too much action in my writing. I am on the slow side. However, I find my readers/editors want a clear story arc. Even if slow paced. And that is…"
