Make Mine Mystery
June 2, 2017

by Linda Kane

In the wonderful world of writing I have been blessed to meet so many creative people who are kind, generous with their time, and experience. The amount of positive energy that exists is amazing and creates an atmosphere that I like to share with others. Our ability to never give up, and every once in a while that persistent nudge that keeps us motivated to continue in our pursuit of writing that perfect piece that resonates throughout the community.
I’ve joined several writing groups, Pacific Coast Writers, sisters in Crime and Romance Writers. I have found the most encouraging and thoughtful people who offer up helpful tips, suggestions on publishers, editors, and ways to self- publish. Writers are honest, giving people and I’m lucky to have found so much kindness, world-wide in this chosen profession of ours.

I had promised to read Book Marketing Challenge and write about any helpful information I gleaned from it…I haven’t forgotten but I’ve been so busy reading and reviewing books on a magazine I write for, In’D Tale that I haven’t gotten to it yet. Next month I will read and report.

I feel the same way. I have a lot of author friends in the Middle Tennessee Sisters in Crime chapter. We do other things than just go to the meetings and we help each other. I also belong to the Nashville Writers Meetup group. I used to go regularly and the shared information was great. I think we understand what writers go through and identify; thus, the reason for so much positive energy and support.

What I've learned is that other authors are more than willing to offer pointers and are happy if someone benefits from them.

I have more writer friends than the other kind--those are the ones who understand me.
