Author Support


Authors, need some support?

Chat, listen to the challenges of others, share resources. All levels of writers can benefit from participating. Published authors enjoy this group as well as beginning writers. This is a forum where you pick the topics and questions to be discussed. Discuss the challenges of writing fiction, memoir, or nonfiction.

The Author Support Group's purposes are to help those who need assistance getting unstuck, want new resources, or need guidance in choosing options. Here are some other possible topics:

  • Want to handle rejection better?
  • Want to form a writing partnership?
  • Need to find Beta readers for your WIP?
  • Need to further your book marketing efforts?
  • Understand the difference between publishing traditionally, e-publishing, print-on-demand technology (POD), and self-publishing.


During the global pandemic, the Author Support Group will be held online on Zoom, the first Saturday of each month, 3 – 4 p.m.

The next Author Support Group:

Saturday, June 5, 2021
3 – 4 p.m.
