Write Right Lunch & Learn: "Plotting and Pacing Your Novel"

Tuesday, June 12

12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m

Main Library, 915 Monroe Street

Second Floor Events Room

Presenter: Lynn Raye Harris, author of Strangers in the Desert

How do you decide what happens in your novel? Do you have enough plot to carry you to the end? Is there too much going on? How do you keep the action going and your readers turning pages?  Learn these essentials to fiction writing.

USA Today bestselling author Lynn Raye Harris burst onto the scene when she won a writing contest held by Harlequin. The prize was an editor for a year -- but only six months later, Lynn sold her first novel. A former finalist for the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart Award, Lynn lives in Alabama with her handsome husband and two crazy cats. Her latest book, Strangers in the Desert, was a Romantic Times Book Reviews magazine Top Pick.

Bring a sack lunch. Drinks will be provided. Questions? Contact Mary Moore at askus@hmcpl.org or 256-532-5975. Read more about Write Right Lunch & Learn: Plotting and Pacing Your Novel
