William G. Collins, author and speaker, at Daytona Beach Writers Guild Meeting yesterday. I’m looking forward to working with William because we have the same publisher (Taylor and Seale Publishing, LLC), we both love history, and we’ve both written books with cats. I gave my mother a copy of his mystery Murder in Pharaoh’s Palace, and she loved it.

As writers, we must work together. In fact, the motto of the Florida Writers Association is Writers Helping Writers. 

Our publisher, Mary Custureri, suggested we speak to writers’ groups. Do you belong to a writers’ group in Florida? I’ve done that before, but have been out of the loop because of my work with the Florida Writers Foundation. Would you like to invite a writer or writers to speak to your group? If so, please contact me. Go to www.MelodyDeanDimick.com, and click on Contact Melody.

I’m the president of the Florida Writers Foundation. a 501©(3) nonprofit formed to promote literacy. We visit schools for reading days, sponsor writing contests, donate books to underprivileged schools, and provide grants to organizations and schools for projects designed to promote literacy. Many of our writers go into schools to talk about writing, reading, and books they have written. Looking for a guest writer? Contact me. Thank you for visiting my site.
