Random Writing Quote:

“The job of the writer is to take a close and uncomfortable look at the world they inhabit, the world we all inhabit, and the job of the novel is to make the corpse stink.”

"Making a Living as a Novelist"

Christopher Reich is the NY Times best-selling author of 10 thrillers. A former investment banker in Geneva, he got the inspiration for his first novel, Numbered Account.

From Chris - I'll be covering a wide variety of topics when we meet in October.  The theme will be "Making a living as a novelist."  I look forward to discussing the state of the publishing industry, what books are selling and what books aren't, how to find an agent, sell a book, and what happens once you get a publisher.  On a more personal level, I'll share stories about my own career: the good, the bad, and the ugly!  (Though I think that's actually a movie!!)  Anyway, I promise we'll have a lively encounter with plenty of laughs!
