Creating community

Lots has been doing on this month! I attended a coop conference in Maine. Not only did I learn a lot about publishing and marketing, I really enjoyed the sense of support provided by the coop.

The experience prompted me to get more active in setting up social networks. Heart Hound Stories now has a presence on Facebook and NAPW. Perhaps more importantly, Lisa Stratton (proprietor of A Little Common Sense) and I were motivated to explore founding an author’s community in our area. Our first authors meetup is Planned for November 27 at A Little Common Sense, at 7 pm. We are inviting authors of all stages, from those wanting to write a book to those who have already published, to attend. Our hope is to frame a community that will provide support and networking for authors and potential authors.

The publishing world has changed greatly in the last few years, in large part due to e-books and social networking. A community is one way to help stay on top of these changes, which are also opportunities.

Please contact me or Lisa if you are interested.
