January Meeting Reminder featuring Collette Auclair

Join SOLA on Saturday, January 17th, 2015 at 10am for our monthly meeting featuring Collette Auclair.

This is the story of my unconventional and completely unplanned route to publication. I’ll share how what started out as a screenplay outline led to a Golden Heart nomination (the call came early one morning, and let’s just say I’m lucky it wasn’t Skype), and an offer of publication from a Big Five New York publishing house…thanks to Twitter. I will also share the trials of suddenly having to write on a deadline, developing a series from a stand-alone book, coping with a crushing revision letter from your editor, how to handle a soul-deep tendency to procrastinate, and more about my experiences as a debut romance novelist.

Prospective members may attend two meetings of SOLA before deciding to join. Our meetings are held from 10 am-noon on the third Saturday of every month, except December, at the Jefferson Parish Library Eastbank Regional Library, 4747 W. Napoleon Avenue in Metairie, LA. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early*.

*Capacity for the Napoleon Room at the library is 45 in the tables-with-chairs seating arrangement. In order to comply with fire safety regulations, members and guests will be turned away when capacity is reached.
