January 9, 2016 meeting.

At our meeting on January 9, 2016 we have a number of topics to discuss brought out on emails sent by members.  Put on your thinking caps and add to the discussions about separating published and unpublished author meetings.  Keep in mind most of our members are published. Several members are interested in cross-promotion.  We need to discuss the PAL LOOP, and Lizzie Sue's mention of Amazon and Smash words preorder Schedule Release.  At our board meeting the question came up about…

New President

I'm new at this job and realize I have an awesome group of previous presidents to follow.  It's daunting to think of reaching their standards and accomplishments, but I have an active board and with them I'll do better than I thought. Hope I'll see you at our January meeting.  Our program VP is working hard to give us the best programs possible.  Our new VP of membership hopes to increase our numbers and bring current members to the meetings.  The new secretary is working on programs to help…

The Denver Woman’s Press Club (DWPC) kicks off a monthly literary salon series on Sunday, September 16, 3 to 5 p.m.  The topic is “Critique Groups: Beneficial or Intimidating?”  The free event is scheduled at the DWPC, 1325 Logan St, Denver.  Critique groups can be supportive, destructive, or mere coffee klatches.  Critiques themselves can be devastating or inspiring.   Three published authors host a discussion about what constitutes an effective group and what can be expected from members. …

Buzz: Hello from a new member

Hello, CRW members,

I'm a new member but a long-time published writer, mostly of nonfiction.  My first published novel (A Saint Comes Stumbling In) came out in January of this year from Inspired Romance Novels (now Prism Publishing), and I also have a novella, Irish Episode, self-published on Kindle.  My sister is long-time member Kathy Williams, so we may attend some meetings together; and you can decide if we look AND laugh alike.  I'm the shorter, plumper one.  I'm still…

Thanks for the Opportunity

This is my last post as your PRO-Liason. I want to thank CRW for a wonderful year as PRO liason and let you know how fun it has been to post here every month. Just a few last words and then I’ll be officially off to PAL.

PRO is an opportunity for authors who are serious about being published to have a group of like-minded authors for support and encouragement. You have to have taken the risk of rejection to get into PRO. You might be someone who succeeded, and…

Jessica Aspen Draws the Line

    When I walked into my first meeting of the local RWA chapter two years ago, it felt like walking into a brand new school. It was filled with friendly faces, but they all had their own groups. It seemed like everyone had known each other for years. Could I fit in here?

    Members rushed around to get things done. I have since found out that while many of our members are founding members or have been with CRW (Colorado Romance Writers) a long time, many of the busiest people…

Fight Resistance and Go PRO

When I joined RWA I did it because I decided not just to write. I  decided to be a professional writer. To write for a living. To be published. Joining a professional group and accessing the resources and minds available was a big decision for me. Originally I had decided to wait to join until I finished a complete full length manuscript. But it became apparent to me that that would be taking a long, long, long time. So I gave up, gave in and got involved.

And I’m incredibly grateful…

Blast Those Harpies


          In Greek mythology, harpies were spirits stealing food from Phineas.  In my case, harpies were invisible flying fairies stealing my self-confidence in writing.  They hovered next to my ear whispering: “You’ll never get published.”  “You’re a terrible writer.”  “You’re wasting your time and energy.”  Have you ever heard those words before?  As a pre-published author, I have encountered these statements more than once.  Usually, I had brushed them off and returned to…

Deep POV

In this brief article, I’ll try and show you a simplified explanation of Deep POV and an example of how to drill down into your character’s POV successively deeper. Deep POV is the number one most effective way to snag your reader’s attention and keep it, and the lack is often the reason a manuscript feels flat and fails to capture an agent or editor’s interest. But what is Deep POV?

Deep POV, also known as deep penetration…
