Saturday Writers: Susan McBride Speaks on Secrets of Publishing

(Photo by Suzy Gorman)
Saturday Writers, the local chapter of the Missouri Writer’s Guild, will host mystery author Susan McBride this Saturday, August 30, 2008 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Her workshop will give tips and tricks to help writers adapt to today’s publishing environment.

The first book in her new young adult series, The Debs, premiers today.

From the Saturday Writers website: "Today's publishing market is tighter--and crazier--than ever. With celebrity books taking over publishing budgets, boundary lines being crossed between literary genres, and some genres shrinking out of sight, what's a writer to do? Being open-minded and versatile is the best game plan, and St. Louis author Susan McBride will discuss how she's kept her literary muscles flexible in order to adapt to these tricky times.

Susan is the author of five Debutante Dropout Mysteries from HarperCollins/Avon, two darker small press mysteries, and the forthcoming young adult series, THE DEBS, from Random House/Delacorte. Susan will share her tricks for working with very different editors, keeping your eyes open for opportunities, and always thinking outside the box!"

Saturday Writers meets on the last Saturday of the month at St. Peters Community and Arts Center, 1035 St. Peters-Howell Road, off Mid Rivers Mall Drive in St. Peters. The meeting is free to members and $5 for non-members. Annual dues are $15.
