I wanted to let you all know about a fabulous opportunity to learn about one of the helpful writing programs available and used by many writers. If you’re planning on writing a book or have already begun, this program can help get you organized. It’s at a very reasonable fee, and it is available for nonmembers. So, please check it out, and register soon. It’s being hosted by my local RWA chapter, Silicon Valley RWA.

Gwen Hernandez (she/her), the author of Scrivener For Dummies, helps writers all over the world master Scrivener through online courses, in-person workshops, and private training. When she’s not using Scrivener to write romantic suspense, this lifelong nomad likes to travel, read, run along the beach, flail on a yoga mat, and explore her current home of Southern California.
