Hello to All St. Louis Writers Guild Members

Just wanted to say thanks to all the St. Louis Writers Guild members at the meeting today. My compatriot Tricia Sanders and I spoke there this morning. They laughed at all my jokes - even the bad ones.

Here are links to some great networking websites we mentioned (and a few more for good measure):

Preditors and Editors - Reviews of publishers and writing-related businesses
Absolutewrite.com - Writers' online community
Therenegadewriter.com
- freelance writing advice from much published writers
The Renegade Writer Wiki - the inside info on magazines provided by freelance writers
Shrinking Violet Promotions - book marketing for introverts
The Writer Mama - Christina Katz blog for writing mothers
Critique Circle - Critique group online
Pubrants - Lit agent Kristin Nelson
Bookends, LLC - Literary agency
Nathan Bransford - Lit agent Nathan Bransford

Genre Blogs
Fangs, Fur, and Fey - blog for published urban fantasy/paranormal authors
Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Books - reviews of romance books and their highly questionable covers
Good Girls Kill for Money - the femme fatales of mystery blog about the writing life

Hope to see you all at the Missouri Writers Guild Conference. Stalk those agents and editors online, people!

Tricia, I talked to you after the meeting about Zombies. Here is a link to my article:

Uh...yeah. There might be a better way to do that...
Thanks for all the talking and information!

I love this! You have captured the essence of zombie psychology precisely.

I started reading it and realized I had read it before when I was browsing zombie stuff. Still love it.

I also loved your other entries. Much snorting of diet coke through the nose. Thanks for visiting the blog.

Thanks to you and Tricia Sanders for your excellent presentation on networking. So glad you addressed introverts! and I ordered bizcards right afterward!

Catherine, thanks for coming by the blog.

It makes me feel so official to call myself a writer on a business card. Hope to get your card at the next writer gathering.
