Research secrets for successful writers

On Wednesday, January 5, 2011, Doris Bloodsworth, Pulitzer nominee reporter, will show easy-to understand research tips via the Internet that add sizzle to fiction, credibility to nonfiction and will supercharge marketing before, during and after publication. The meeting starts at 6:30 PM at the University Club of Winter Park and is free and open to the public. Contact Rik Feeney at for more information.

Top 3 things participants will learn:
1. Links to online public records and writing resources that every aspiring and published author should know.
2. How to organize research so that it’s easy to retrieve when you’re writing.
3. How to research your book’s target audience so that you make smart marketing decisions.

See why Doris says she spends 80 percent of her writing time on research.

From I-4 East or West, take the Lee Road exit and head East toward the Atlantic Ocean. Lee Road will dead end at 17-92 (Orlando Ave.) where you will make a right turn, then get immediately into the left turn lane to make a left on Webster (as you turn a Borders book store will be on your right). Follow Webster through a light at Denning, then another light at the railroad tracks, then you will come to a stop sign, actually stop, then before the next stop sign (which is Park Ave) you will turn left into the University Club. Go up the ramp to the side door, then keep going to your left inside to the library where we hold the meeting.
