Zola, We're delighted to have you in the novelist group! 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 if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on.
We do a live chat on Fridays at 3EST; instructions on how to participate are in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. Do join us! 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.

Zola, Adding my voice to the welcome. I gather you're a librarian from your profile. If so, thank you! I'm not sure I'd be a novelist if it weren't for some terrific librarians who pointed me to good reading when I was young, and now point me to good research sources.

If you’re looking for a place to jump in and write longer fiction (or think you might like to), we’d love to have you join us in the in Novelists – Struggling or Not group.

Enjoy the site!

Moderator, Publishing Industry News, and Novelist Group
