Author panel at Maine Romance Writers retreat with Madeline Hunter, Sandy Sullivan and Jean Joachim

I had the opportunity to share two very different writers’ retreats in the last two months.  One was very intimate with only four of my fellow published writers.  We spent one day on four brain-storming sessions of one hour each, the topic to be chosen by each author.  As usual, I learned just as much if not more from the other writer’s sessions.  In case you are curious the sessions included one on promotion, one on plotting, one on career planning and one creating a street-team for marketing.

The second retreat was more traditional and formal, with guest speakers and plenty of opportunities for networking and a free exchange of ideas.  Thanks to the Maine Romance Writers, I have learned a little about Facebook Book Launch parties and how to create some jpegs for twitter.  It is just fascinating how generous writers are with their talents.

Here is my first twitter jpeg that I created myself (she says proudly).
