Charlotte Moore, who lives in Perry, has three mystery series going, sold on Kindle: Hunter Jones mysteries, Kate and Kylie mysteries, and Laurel Grove mysteries. Charlotte is a retired journalist.
Milton Davis, a chemist by training, has a micropubishing company, MVMedia. He writes black speculative fiction and publishes works by other authors. One of his best-selling series is Meji, about African twins separated at birth. Recently he published Terminus, an anthology set in Atlanta. Milton's books are available on Kindle as well as via his webpage mvmediaatl.com.
Charlotte Moore, local author of Middle Georgia-based mysteries published on Kindle, will be attending the Fort Valley Writers' Retreat on August 25.
Milton Davis, Atlanta-based author and publisher of speculative black fiction, also will attend. Both writers will describe their writing and publishing experiences.
The retreat will be at the 1890s Retreat House near the Post Office in Fort Valley, and it will last from 10 am to 4 pm. The cost of the retreat plus lunch is $30.
Stay tuned for pictures of the guest writers and information about their books!
Our regular first-Monday-of-the-month meeting will be at St. Luke's Episcopal Church Parish Hall in Fort Valley at 7 pm, July 2. (Meeting time has been changed from 6:30 to 7 pm.) St. Luke's is at 1000 State University Drive, right across the street from the first entrance to Fort Valley State University.
At these Monday meetings, we share tips on writing and getting published. But mostly, we bring copies of something we have written and get critiques from the group. I hope to bring something new from my memoir!
Remember that we are moving away from use of Meetup.com and will communicate with each other from now on via this blog and comments or via the Facebok page called Fort Valley Writers' Group at St. Luke's. So it is up to us, from now on, to invite new members and give them the contact information.
The following meeting, our write-in, will be July 17 at 7 pm at Atlanta Bread Co. in Warner Robins.
Our first modest writers' retreat is planned for August 25, a Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, at the 1890s Retreat House in Fort Valley, two doors down from the post office. The cost is $30 per person, and lunch will be served. One guest will be Charlotte Moore, author of numerous mysteries available on Amazon, and other published writers may attend. Part of the day will be spent on writing, thus the title, Writers' Retreat. Stay connected with this page and/or with our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/writerspursuit/ to learn more. Email Anna Holloway at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to reserve and pay for a place at the retreat.
I am the organizer and contact person for the Fort Valley Writers Group at St. Luke's. We meet at 7 pm 1st Tuesdays at St. Luke's across from the university in Fort Valley and 4th Tuesdays at Panera in Warner Robins.
The History of the Fort Valley Writers' Group at St. Luke's
Our group, formerly the Fort Valley Writers Meetup@St. Luke's, has been in existence since May 2016. Our members come from Fort Valley, Byron, Warner Robins, Macon, and elsewhere. We all are serious about writing, whether it be fantasy, science fiction, novels, memoirs, poetry, blogs, or other genres. We have discussed agents, query letters, publishers, conferences, and self publishing as well as writing techniques. Recently, we have concentrated on bringing work to the group to be critiqued, on 1st Mondays, and sitting to write on 3rd Tuesdays. Our members include old and young and are diverse in other ways.
If you have a question or a comment, comment below, and I will respond on behalf of the group.
