For our April meeting, our president, Gayle Carline, will be teaching her workshop on The Nuts and Bolts of Self-Publishing.
The description is:
Self-publishing is a wonderful option for many authors, but what is involved? This workshop is a primer for the basics of being an author-publisher. We’ll start with questions to determine whether your book is a good candidate, then move on to the details of releasing a finished product and finding your readers. If you’re sitting on the fence, this workshop can help you make an informed decision.
The meeting/workshop will begin at 2 pm.
There will be no forum.

2016 LADIES OF INTRIGUE EVENT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS
Eighteen authors and ninety women gathered together to honor Carolyn Hart's final public event. National Sisters in Crime presented Carolyn with an arrangement of orchids and white roses along with a stuffed "white" seal wearing a silver chain necklace with a Sisters in Crime charm.
Featured speaker Rhys Bowen's touching interview of Carolyn was heartwarming, making everyone in the room hoping Carolyn keeps writing.
MC, Greta Boris kept the event smooth and sailing along. And our closing featured speaker Robin Burcell was a hit with the inside scoop of co-writing with Clive Cussler and her law enforcement experiences.
Panels: Wine, Dine & Die featured authors' Kathy Aarons; Linda O. Johnston; Carlene O'Neil; Kate Dyer Seeley with Moderator, Earlene Fowler. Panel: Lean, Mean & In Between featured authors' Lisa Brackmann; Jane Haseldine; Naomi Hirahara; Laurie Stevens; Pamela Samuels Young with moderator, Daryl Wood Gerber. Panel: Dangerous Locales featured authors' Ellen Byron; Donis Casey; Hannah Dennison; Earlene Fowler with moderator, Kate Carlisle.
Books sold at a fast pace and were signed by the authors. Raffle baskets were won while many attendees asked to sign up for next years' LOI. Attendees expressed their gratitude to all the authors for sharing their stories and also being able to sit with their favorite author at the round tables for lunch.
Professional photographer Bob Webber took constant pictures to document the day, which will be posted on line. A great big thank you to the organizing committee and volunteers who made this event such a success: Jill Amadio, MC Greta Boris, greeter Nancy Churchill, raffle organizer Gita Fisher, Valerie Hansen, Jack Martin, Evelyn Moore, and Linda Nakamura. We could not have done it without you. Co-chairs, Diana Dallape and Debbie Mitsch appreciated all of your hard work.
