(See link in paragraph, below, to order book)
One of my co-workers, an attorney by the name of Bill Scarff (who also edits her books), mentioned several weeks ago that a friend of his, Maureen, will be featured at a book signing at Borders in Crystal Court, to promote her newly released book Pandemic Predator: A Mary MacIntosh Novel.
I purchased a duly signed copy of the book from her. It was great to be able to attend the Q&A session, which picked up momentum once members of the Orange County Writers’ Forum, who organized/sponsored the event, started asking questions. In fact, I wasn’t sure I was going to get a word in edgewise, but did manage to ask several questions. It was all very informative, and encouraging, to know that I wasn’t the only one to deal with some of the issues that I have when attempting to write a story.
I also felt heartened to find a group of writers in the area who gather once a month… I’ve already sent an email requesting for membership. Belonging to a group will be at once exciting as well as motivating.
