We should a Lone Star Mystery Writers section of the Mystery Writers of America.
Actually, it's a shame that the Mystery Writers of America don't have a bigger regional presence in Texas, like the Romance Writers do. I know that there are lot of mystery writers all over this state, but the regional mtgs seem to be either in Houston or Dallas--a little far away for regular attendance for people like me! Here in Central Texas (Waco), we have an active HOT-RWA group, so I joined it just to get the benefit of being with other writers.
Thanks for good wishes. I look forward to reading your work!
All's good. Got a book with an agent right now. I should hear back...oh, sometime around Christmas. Meanwhile, busy with self-publishing, trying not to feel overwhelmed by marketing and promotion, and getting used the this whole blogging thing, which is new to me. In other words, all's good. Thanks.
