Writing is an extremely solitary profession. It is therefore imperative that writers construct a support group of like-minded professionals.

There are many local and national organizations for the specific writing genres, but I have found that a writing-critique group is the most important support group available.

I have been a member of Trinity Writers Workshop in Bedford, Texas for many years and found that experience most beneficial in my writing journey.

In an earlier post, I mentioned five reasons for joining a writers critique group. You can find it here.

I wrote my first novel Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series Book 1) while a member there and I benefitted from the critiques, comments and support of the member. I also made life-long friendships there.

Thicker Than water is part of a free ebook promotion from March 13 through March 17. Please order it here at Amazon.

I hope you will read it, enjoy it and review it.
