I wonâ€™t be at OCCâ€™s Birthday Bash this month, and will definitely miss it. I wasnâ€™t at last monthâ€™s meeting, either, because of some travel plans. Both conflicts were family related, and that takes precedence over everything. But I miss OCC! I should be there for Novemberâ€™s meeting, at least. Canâ€™t wait to see everyone again!
Iâ€™m teaching an online class this month, starting on October 22. Itâ€™s for Savvy Authors, a really fun online website for writers, and itâ€™s on Blending Romance and Suspense: Putting Suspense Into Your Romance Novel and Romance Into Your Mystery.
The last class I taught was for OCC, on how to write a cozy mystery. I intend to reprise that one for Savvy Authors next spring.
Meantime, I intend to make the Blending Romance and Suspense class just as much fun. Since I write both romances with suspense or mystery in them, and mysteries that also contain romantic interests, I feel qualified to teach this–and in fact I did present a similar online class a while ago for another website.
So… all of you attending OCCâ€™s Birthday Bash, please think of me. Raise your glass or teacup in a toast that includes me. Iâ€™ll be thinking of you!
Oh, and youâ€™re all more than welcome to join my online Savvy Authors class….
