Orlando FWA Mtg – Wed Aug 5 @ 6:55pm – Writing Dialogue that Matters

Writing Dialogue that Matters

Nancy Quatrano

Nancy Quatrano

Dialogue can make or break your book–and your writing career. Find out at the Orlando FWA writer’s group on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2020 at 6:55 p.m. via FreeConferenceCall.com, when Nancy Quatrano joins us to lead this discussion. Nancy is the author of several short and long fiction series and currently has thirteen books published in both traditional and indie.

Quatrano says, “Do dialogue badly and readers won’t read your next book; do it right and they’ll forgive a lot of other aspects if they must.”

 During this talk you will learn 1) how dialogue impacts genre, tone, and characterization, 2) how to properly punctuate dialogue, and 3) the distinction between dialogue beats and tags.

Always Chasing

This talk is free and open to the public. For more information, contact: Rik Feeney at usabookcoach@gmail.com / RickFeeney.com or 407-529-8539.

Join us Wednesday, July 1st at 7:00 pm for a Zoom presentation by Gary M. Krebs, a former trade book publisher turned author and literary agent provides insider knowledge about the publishing industry and what authors need to know before they embark on their journey.

Krebs says, “While it’s easy in this day-and-age to self-publish a book, it is exceptionally difficult to do it well. You don’t know what you don’t know. However, potential customers and readers easily distinguish between an amateur book and a professionally published book.”

The top 3 things participants will learn: 1) the reality of the publishing business, 2) the differences between self-publishing, hybrid publishing, and traditional publishing, and 3) the most important things to consider if you want a professionally published book.

Missed an Orlando FWA webinar?

Orlando FWA webinar links

Like many of you, I have been trapped at home finding new ways to scare my cat and train my goldfish. While that supplies a certain amount of fun, I still need more mental stimulation.

I have spent a great deal of time watching webinars, tutorials, and online courses. I just got done watching a tutorial on Parakeet CPR. If Tweety lives; great. If not, I have some Cornish Hen recipes that may be useful.

But I digress…

I’m really writing this post to send you information on some Zoom webinars that have already taken place, you might want to review via replay links:
