Orange Empire Writers League

My writers group met for the 4th session last Thursday, and we’re coming along beautifully. We help each other, and I love to share what I’ve learned along the way.

During our meetings, we cover topics important to our careers, and for our next one, we’ll each write a One Page Synopsis and bring it for a critique.

Some past topics:

  •  Loglines or Your Novel’s Hook Line
  •  Opening Paragraphs
  •  Manuscript Mechanics: Take Your Manuscript from Amateur to Professional, and in our first meeting, we discussed,
  • 5 Tiers of Publishing

We’re also forming a critique group, so if you’re a writer, check out the website for more information and join us.

I'm a novelist, short story writer, and I currently serve as CEO for L. Cooper Press, a service for writers. Thomson-Gale bought one of my novels, With Full Malice, for their 5 Star Mystery line, then Harlequin WorldWide Mysteries bought the mass market paperback rights. I lead a novel critique group in Redlands, CA, so if you're in the area and writing a novel, join us: When I can't attend, Amy Fletcher leads the group. You can always contact me through my websites:
