Ann opened with the advice, ” Don’t ignore your intuition.”

She gave us a list of resources and ideas for all aspects of writing, publishing, and marketing.

Some of her suggestions included:

Read what you love and what informs you.

Start networking through local and national clubs.

Join critique groups on-line and in person.

Make time to write.

Market while you are writing. Use social media, the press, and word-of-mouth.

Her favorite books on writing are: Goal, Motivation & Conflict: The Building Blocks of Good Fiction by Debra Dixon and The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler.

Ann also explained the differences between ISBN numbers, Barcodes, and Library of Congress numbers.

Ann’s books include Song of the Ocarina and Rhythms & Muse.
