WELCOME TO YOUR WORLD

One of the curses of being a writer is when people say “I've had a fascinating life. You should write about me.”

Love Waits – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
“You’re still a virgin!” Judy’s tone softened. “You know, girl, I can help you out here, so you can drop out of the losers club. I have a friend, wickedly

cute by the way, who’s got the same condition as you. I told him I’d

be glad to help him solve his problem, but he doesn’t want to be with a

girl…

Dracula Doesn’t Live Here Anymore – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



“Look at me Dexter, look at my eyes.” He did as she asked, and for the

first time, he noticed the redness. Her eyes were like two ruby red

pools and they were growing deeper with every passing second. She moved

station manager? Was there some… Continue

PRICELESS PUBLICITY

Wouldn't it be nice if the writers in this group each had their own publicity agent? Publicity can cost money—but it doesn't have to.
