Don’t miss out on Mentor Monday!

Have you ever wished you could talk directly with your favorite mystery authors, or get an agent’s up-to-the-minute report on what editors are looking for, or ask the advice of an expert web site designer? SinC gives you the chance to do all that and more every week through Mentor Monday, a new feature on our national listserv.

Beginning Monday, January 7 with a visit from Margaret Maron, we’ll have an unprecedented lineup of guests who excel in every aspect of the book business. Each guest will be available throughout the day to answer your questions and offer their insight and advice. In addition to Margaret, we’ve already scheduled agent Paige Wheeler, Nancy Pickard, Gary Niebuhr (author of Read ‘Em Their Writes, a guide to running a book discussion group), Margaret Coel, agent Janet Reid, top web designer Maddie James, Eve Sandstrom (aka JoAnna Carl), Susan Wittig Albert, SinC Library Liaisons Doris Ann Norris and Mary Boone, and editor Chris Roerden. Later guests will include Stephen Booth, Julie Smith and many more you will not want to miss.

If you’re a member of SinC but haven’t joined the national listserv, sign up today by sending an e-mail to sistersincrime-subscribe@yahoogroups.com – and please include your full name in the body of the e-mail to speed up verification of your membership so you can be added to the list as quickly as possible. You can opt for a daily digest, but for Mentor Mondays you may want to switch to individual messages for the day so you can join in the conversation. (Changing back and forth via e-mail is easy – just click on the link at the bottom of every digest or message. Contact sparshall@verizon.net if you hit a snag.)

Don’t miss out on Mentor Monday – or the lively, informative discussions among SinC members the rest of the week. Whether you’re a writer or a fan, we hope we’ll be hearing from you on the listserv!
