[Zoom Event) INWG Meeting


Our very special guest speaker this month is Jenny Milchman, the award-winning author of 5 published books. All beginning/lightly/heavily published writers are invited to participate in this event. Jenny will give an overview of her own experience with being published, her views on the value of having an agent, and her preference for the benefits of traditional publishing. But, she will also cover the concept of self-publishing and things to consider.

As a bonus:  If you purchase your copy of The Second Mother from Auntie's (509-838-0206), you will not only get a 15% book club discount (be sure to ask on order or at checkout) but you will also be eligible to receive a publishing questionnaire from Jenny, and eligible to win a critique/coaching session with her. Be sure to hang on to your receipt as proof of purchase.

The event will be via Zoom. Everyone on our regular writers mailing list will receive the link on the day of the event - Oct. 21 - before 6 p.m. Or, you may request it be sent directly to you by contacting Linda at:  lindathewriter@gmail.com.

Liz Daniels should be happy about setting off on a rare family vacation. Instead, she feels uneasy about taking her kids away from home to see their grandparents.

After a day on the road, Liz decides it’s time to check in to a hotel for the night.
